We found this hotel exceptional from time of reservation to book in. The desk staff were friendly and very helpful. We chose a ocean front room and did not want to leave. The room had everything you needed including a view to die for. What better way to spend some time than sitting on the balcony watching the passing parade... More

This is a great hotel. Very clean. Also, about a 2 minute walk to John's Pass. The only complaint I have would be concerning the TV. The room was split in half by a waist high wall. Half had the bed and the other half had the couch, table and TV. The TV was mounted on the wall facing the... More

I did some research before booking this Hotel, and I was pleasently surprised that I got it right ! It was perfect. The Ocean view studo room was absolutely wonderful. Stepping out of your hotel, right on to white sandy beach was great ! It's a 2 block walk to St. Johns Pass Boardwalk, and that's where the action is.... More

This place is no better than any motel, in a matter of fact, we would call it three story motel, there is no lobby, restaurant or even a breakfast area.
