Stayed here on way to Ormand by the sea, florida . Staff was very nice rooms were clean and nice view. Was an older hotel, but clean and beautiful beach view. Had a kitchen and small living room with tv. Would stay again if passing through. Had a continental breakfast and coffee available all night. Lots to see around there.

The location and view from every room is fantastic looking out to the gulf. All rooms had kitchen and seperate bedroom and living areas. Service was great and location was easily access able to attractions and shopping. The advertised breakfast was almost non-existent. However it was a great trip over all.

We've been 2 years in a row just after Christmas. The hotel is all "suites" with small differences, but every room has a beach view. We enjoy the separate rooms for sleeping and eating/tv watching/relaxing. The kitchen has a full fridge, small coffee maker and microwave. Comes with kitchen sink to wash up dishes and enough dishes/silverware to serve 4....

We booked this condo for a last minute get away and got a great price for beach front for the weekend. There were only a couple of negative things, but mostly just preferences of mine. The parking lot out front is very small and the lanes are very narrow, so it's difficult to open your doors and get luggage out...
