Positive Reviews

Complimentary water bottles

Most guests note that complimentary water bottles can be found in the rooms, and are re-stocked regularly. They say that this is a nice touch since guests are thirsty after a long day at the beach and the SeaWorld, and most hotels charge for water.

Great location

Many guests say that the location is convenient to outdoor activities, and visiting the beach and SeaWorld. Some guests note that there is a shopping mall close by, as well as several good restaurants.

Fully equipped rooms

Most guests agree that rooms are well-equipped, saying that the furniture is new and modern and that in-room appliances are in working order. They note that refrigerators and microwaves are very convenient, especially for families staying with small children.

Negative Reviews

Limited parking

Some guests note that the parking lot is very small and difficult to navigate, saying that getting there late might mean parking on the street. Several guests recommend checking out local garages if the hotel's parking lot is full, since the prices are reasonable.

Smallish rooms

Several guests say that the rooms are a little on the small side and can feel crowded, noting that there is barely any space there to store a suitcase. Some guests suggest upgrading to a suit, as those are much more comfortable and have larger bathrooms.

Spotty Internet service

According to some guests, the hotel's free Internet service is nothing to write home about, saying that it is not reliable and that it disconnects occasionally. Several guests also note that actual speed is lower than advertised, and recommend using a personal data plan for a more reliable connection.
