My husband and I booked here because we decided somewhat last minute to get away for Independence Day, and the choices were slim at that point. If you are looking for a true beachfront property, Marina Cove is not it. They are waterfront on a small bay area and have a beach, but it is not suitable for swimming. There...

Looks like an older motel which has been refubished. Rooms are nicely furnished and clean. Well kept gardens and pool area. Small beach. Had room service for breakfast which was reasonably priced and arrived hot. Pet friendly which is why we chose this resort.

Checked inthis hotel on 7/3- room 241. The minute i walked in the room- i was dissapointed. Looks nothing like the pictures. It smelled bad too! Our balcony view showed trees only. Decided to go check out the rest of the property and was evenmore dissapointed. The "private" beach is dirty- it stinks soo bad too! I cancelled immediately and...

We arrived, dropped our bag off, and returned late at night. That was a big mistake for we were put in a room with what this hotel calls "Enironment Hot" water. Upon returning, we had the pleasure of a cold showers. The next morning I reported the lack of hot water and a non-responsive TV remote. That night we returned...

The hotel could use some updating but who spend the whole vacation at the hotel anyways. It was a cheap place to change and sleep. The beds are a full size bed, which I did not care for being that cramped sleeping with my husband. The pillows on the bed was miniature sized or something they just was not long...

Hotel is fine, the reception staff were friendly on arrival. The problem came when we arrived at the restaurant, mostly empty. No greeter or host. Eventually a woman breezed past & said she couldnt seat us for 25 mins. No apology or explanation. She seemed more interested in a phone call she was making. After 40 mins went to reception...

This is absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. I thought it was questionable based on the reviews and pictures online but it's worse in person. I did not choose to stay here. I was placed here because my child was attending camp and this was the "home" hotel. The entire place smelled terrible - rotten fish/murky musty water...

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times usually with friends when we come over from the UK fishing. On this occasion I was with my family on a Florida Road Trip. This was our 5th Hotel. Knowing the hotel I was confident that my family would love it which they did. The staff were pleasant and polite...

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights, longer than we usually stay at a hotel. The property is very clean and well kept. The landscaping around the hotel and pool areas make the hotel seem more like an oasis, vs. a concrete hotel experience. Our best note though is about the staff. They worked to make our stay a...
