Stayed here two nights longer than originally planned because we loved it so much. Wake up early in the morning, go out on the balcony and watch a manatee or two go by. Go downstairs, through the pool area, and step right onto the beach. Manatees came within a foot of us a couple of times. *You can look but...

This is an older hotel, but is clean and comfortable. They are directly on a private beach. There is something to be said about the ocean being only footsteps away. They also offer juice and pastries as complimentary breakfast. All rooms have a fridge, stove, microwave. Unbeatable price. I will def return. I see others mention music fom the neighbor...

Booking this last minute for memorial day weekend.... The hotel is directly next to Shepards resort which has all day and all night parties with extremely loud music.... Which is great if you like the music! Staying on the north side on the 5th floor affords great views of the bands/acts performing and it is close to some fun times....

There was a young man at the front desk who was very friendly and awesome. He brightened mine and my husband's day every time we talked by. As well as this, other employees were kind and courteous while the rooms were clean and accommodating. Plus there was a private beach and a pool/spa for when we got sick of the...

This hotel is on the main clear water strip.. with the pier being about a 15-20 min walk from the hotel and marina. If you plan on going to the pier or marina a lot, I would not suggest this hotel. But this hotel is right on a beach .... its like a private beach. You cannot get to the...

Good value for the money. Has private beach, but small and gulf front with lots of fish, and hence, pelicans,which are fun to watch,but not swim with. Nice heated pool with hot tub. It was nice being able to hear the bands from neighboring properties late into the night, but pity the people trying to sleep early, because it was...

I booked the hotel over the phone for April 18-20. We requested a room that was on the quiet side of the hotel as we had read online one side of the hotel faces the live music next door. We got there late in the evening and had to go through 3 different rooms before finally deciding to check out...

I apologize that your request for a refund was denied, however, the room was accepted, removed from inventory and made unavailable to rent to others seeking accommodations that night. Entry into the 1st room was a staff error, (it was out of service and should not have been rented), and I apologize for the inconvenience that it may have caused...

Not the biggest, not the flashiest, no fancy restaurants. Just an outstanding medium size hotel with great rooms, exceptional cleanliness, and as friendly a staff as we've ever encountered anywhere. Maybe the halls are old and shabby but the rooms are clean with good beds. Remember it is on the beach and beautiful. The rates are reasonable for the average...
