It is clearly a well used facility, but it was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the room was a a good size. The staff was very friendly we really loved the early morning shuttle driver- he was so friendly and humorous. The location is far from any things, but close enough that you can take a nice...

Hotel needs new management and is outdated. Beds old, pillows small. Coffee in rooms lacking. Front desk would not answer phone when our showers had no hot water. Claim they have room service but no food after 11pm. Nothing to eat around hotel after 11pm. Good is the bar the beach volleyball and the view of the bay. I will...

Stayed for one night prior to a cruise in January. Meeting my sister and husband for a cruise the next day. We were checking in at different times, but Mimi made sure we got our rooms close to each other. She ran the front desk, the store and whatever else you needed. She was open to helping find local food,...

Got my room via Hotwire so I expected a crummier room than usual. It was a 1 night stay so I kept my expectations low. Old mattress,faucet with trickle flow, bugs flying out of sink, alarm clock did not work. However, the room was large, the reading chair was comfy, and check-in was a breeze. Easy to get to.

I want to let you know that you have some terrific employees working at your hotel. I'm sure more often than not, you hear complaints and not positives comments.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and did not feel it was anywhere near worth the price we paid. Arrived approximately 45 minutes before check in and had to wait.

rooms aren't great but you get what you pay for. close to the airport and next to Beach (formally Hogans) which is probably the best part. If you have a Bay view than be sure to look out during sunset.
