Positive Reviews

Wonderful staff.

Guests felt well taken care of by the entire staff due to their professional and friendly nature, and the concierge staff received many compliments for being very knowledgeable, proactive and able to secure desired reservations and special deals.

Amenities are nice to have

Guests enjoyed the pool, which they found to be large and clean, and the pool bar was another hit. They also mentioned that the hotel was family-friendly with special touches in the rooms, S'mores night at the beach or occasional activities making kids feel welcome. Having a gift shop, gym and free shuttle services available was stated to be helpful and convenient.

Central location.

The hotel is only a few stops from the beach where you can take advantage of water sport rentals, go for a swim or bike along the promenade. You'll also be within easy reach of many popular attractions and will be able to watch the fireworks Sea World hosts every evening during the summer months right from the beach.

Negative Reviews

Feeds add up

Unless you're a HHonors member, in-room Wi-Fi requires a daily fee, which guests found to be rather disappointing given the slow and unreliable connection. Moreover, they also noted that parking was more expensive than what other hotels in the area charge.

Dining experience not perfect

Guests reported that the breakfast buffet wasn't very extensive and therefore a bit overpriced, and the overall dining experience wasn't much to rave about. They stated that orders were incomplete, the food was good but nothing out of the ordinary and service was somewhat slow at times.

Rooms could use some TLC

According to some guests, the rooms appear outdated with the smell of mildew lingering and the furniture and bedspreads being quite worn.
