Flew into Miami, which is a straightforward drive of around 45 mins to the hotel. Came here to be close to the beach (5 mins drive) at start and end of vacation, either side of visiting the parks at Orlando. Hotel staff & facilities were brilliant, our package included all you can eat breakfast to set us up each day....

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times over the years and have had excellent experiences each time. The staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious and some include kitchenettes, and breakfast is pretty decent. I have one major complaint and it's this - the hotel pumps some kind of awful and strong-smelling perfume scent into the lobby. The second you...

The price for this hotel is too much for the location and the fact that it is a Residence in. The lobby is pretty, but does not carry over to the rooms. Skip the ocean view and go for a room overlooking the intracoastal. The ocean view feels like you are mostly looking at the street because it's a bit...

Thank you for taking time to send us your review. We're glad to hear our staff was able to go above and beyond for you by giving you a complimentary room upgrade after you booked a Studio Suite water view.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in a one bedroom king suite overlooking the Intracoastal for two nights in January of 2017 because it was close to a beer festival that we were attending.

This was by far the best hotel stay of the year. The staff were the friendliest I have ever seen. The room was absolutely spacious and the views were pretty awesome. If there was a knock for the hotel it would be due to things outside the control of the hotel so not really even worth mentioning.

Beautiful huge suite overlooking the intercultural waterway. The balcony was HUGE, you could have a party out there. Restaurant was very good, free breakfast with a big selection. There are rental bikes nearby as well as the beach and a fantastic state park. Very fairly priced.

This is a great hotel in a fantastic location. Super close to the beach sitting right on the intracoastal waterway. Breakfast in the AM is nice. It's a pet friendly hotel. $100 non refundable fee is required for pets.
