Our family of four stayed here prior to taking a flight to Honolulu for a cruise. There are three requirements that I have in a room when we are traveling: 1) Breakfast included, preferably hot, waffles are a plus, 2) Shuttle to the airport, 3) Shuttle to the cruise dock. In this case, we were flying out so we didn't...

Our visit started off shaky when we were unable to use their shuttle service from the airport but they paid for the shuttle service we did take. The room was modest but clean and fine enough for us to make camp in. Location was fantastic for what we wanted to see.

nothing to special about the place. we just stayed for a night and we had a good night sleep at least. the downfall would be paying extra for a parking spot and the rude front desk lady. other than that, you get what you paid for. basic.

Let me start by saying we had no serious issues with the place. What irritated me most was a) being charged in 3 separate card transactions and b) the rate we were quoted on Booking.com was room only so we got charged for that plus tax. As you will always have to pay these tax I don't see how they...

Sent the boys down for a couple nights at Spring Break. Room 207. They didn't have high expectations as it was a place to crash when they weren't visiting friends or hanging out at the beach. Booked it through Expedia, and was asking them about the place to leave a review. Completely grossed out when the one staying in the...

Thank you for taking the time to provide us a review of your stay. We are excited that our remodel plans have been approved. I will have a conversation with my housekeeping to adjust the amount of towels in the room. As I believe more than 2 sets should be provided in a room with 2 queens.
