I've visited over 60 countries around the world. This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. $300 for a night here. Absolute rip off! Top floor has been renovated, so you can bet that any positive reviews are from guests that stayed there. Our room was filthy, faced the car park (Gulf view - changed to 'partial' on arrival)...

Every room on the property has been renovated. The hotel is situated such that, there is a parking lot on site. As viewed from the balcony, looking straight down, yes, one will see a parking lot. However, upon entering the room, and looking out through the balcony sliding doors there is a view of the Gulf. We do acknowledge loud...

We booked this property during high school spring break. I will give you the pros and the cons...... Pros: The location is good. There is mini golf, shopping and a cute market right across the street. The hotel is right on a little beach; you are able to parasail and rent jet skis right on property. The rooms have been...

I was a little nervous about this hotel based on some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised! The staff was very friendly upon check in and check out. We had a room with gulf view that was awesome! We took advantage of the hotel's beach area which was great. I would definitely stay here again. You cannot go...

After reading the reviews I was worried. Nonsense! Maybe it used to be outdated, but not anymore. This place is incredibly nice and newly renovated. It's clean, new furniture, new carpet and bedding. Private swimming beach is small, but perfect if you want privacy. The view is beautiful. Live music next door every night that you can watch from the...

For the money $88 a night wasn't expecting much. Nice room-great bed! Had a balcony that looked out onto the parking garage next door but hey! $88 a night on the beach. Heated pool and hot tub. One parking spot per room, by the evening every spot taken as the hotel was full up

I can agree with other reviews, that some not all of the hotel is outdated, and when we mean outdated, it may need some cosmetic work, to keep some people happy. Considering i don't walk the halls for 24 hours or stay in the room and cook all day, then the hotel was satisfactory. I did have 3 great nights...

Well we though at first sight.. it is ocean front resort.. but this is not. Clear water beach is somewhere .8 miles from this place. Overall stay was good... room was clean and fresh. Sand key park is also near by.

Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The hallways smell horrible haven't been updated in a very long time. Staff was nice but would do nothing without manager who is MIA and won't return calls. Pick another place.

Although we are not a newly built hotel, we continue to make improvements and are looking forward to completion of additional projects that are in the works. Those include, beach renourishment, and updates to the...
