"Bad experience!"
June, 2017
No bedbugs, but hole in the wall in one room and no working AC. The other room had AC but couldn't turn down. It was dirty and dark in the hallways. We also had trouble with the front desk with payment issues. The employees we sent had to leave before breakfast since it was not until 7:00. I am the secretary that made the reservations so felt bad that the experience was not pleasant.

"Wonderful Stay"
March, 2017
Room was very clean and very large. Bed was comfortable. There was a mini fridge in the room. The air conditioner worked well. I had a corner room and even though there were a lot of people staying there, it was quiet. Breakfast was OK..biscuits/gravy...eggs, waffles, juice. Staff was friendly and helpful. Outdoor pool was not open but neither were the ones at other hotels in the area.

Tip: There is not an elevator, but the stairs were not too bad because you go up a few and there is a landing.

"Better than expected"
August, 2016
We were down in D building near the indoor pool. The room was surprisingly nice for a cheap hotel. The indoor pool was nice but definitely was not actually 5 ft deep. There are balconies off of the pool. Not far from main strip.
Breakfast was packed and not worth the effort.

Nice pool and the staff was wonderful. The rooms are a little out of date, but very clean. I would not suggest eating at the continental breakfast though.

"Spring break weekend"
March, 2015
The front desk staff was great. The room was good beds were clean and comfortable enough. The pool was nice and the breakfast ladies work very hard to put out a good breakfast. The only thing we didn't like was the air conditioning wasn't working properly but it was cool enough outside to run the fan and keep it cool. We would stay here again.

Our stay was horrible! We got checked in and went to our room got half way to sleep and the headboard fell off the wall hitting my husband in the head! We took the part up to the front desk and the guy acted like it 2as something that happened on a regular basis! There was not a member of management to talk to us about the incident and I have been told that someone will call me Monday! The blanket was the texture of window curtains and just about as think as one too! When we asked for another blanket they gave us atwin sized blanket for a king size bed! The paint in the bathroom was peeling off the walls and I being 5'6 was about a foot taller than the shower. We were going to stay another night but we check out. Please save your time and do not stay here.

We have been coming to this hotel for a few years now! We had a standard double queen our first visit and loved how spacious the room was on our next visit we booked the family suite and the pull out couch that we needed was broken and they did absolutely nothing about it. We were there 4 nights that time. Our last trip we got the veranda room with the balcony. The sliding glass door would not shut all the way. I brought it to their attention bc it was raining and the floor was soaked and they told me that they would come look at it. They never did. So the next night it was freezing and we were cold at about 3 am. So when I went to check out this morning i told them about how cold it was and she was like it wasn’t a problem yesterday! Wow no bc you said you’re maintenance would come look at it so I assumed you fixed it. So now she tells me I should have called the after hours and they would move us rooms....umm no I have a 2 and 6 year Old and I’m not waking them up to move at 3 am. I then informed them that the shower head where it is attached is spraying water everywhere soaking the ceiling and my towels and clothes that were in the bathroom. She had the nerve to say we will get it taken care of today. And i asked her what good that was going to do me bc we were leaving. We will not be back ever and will stop recommending this place to our family and friends. They didn’t even have the common courteously to apologize.

It was terrible. Bed was broke, hair dryer didn't work, towel rack fell off the wall and to top it off, there was a used dirty band aid on the remote. I finally went to the front desk and some with the manager. He tore the band aid off the remote and handed it back to me. The room was at least clean. If you dare stay here take your own pillows. Talk about flat and well used. Please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.
