Hotel's Favourite
Nice property, clean, well located not a far drive to some great Restaurants and activities.. fall is a great time to travel in this area, less traffic but weather still nice, we hit 80 most of our five days.. worth the extra for the upgrade (efficiency they call it ) .. A special shout out to the Manager Nirav Patel, he was so friendly and helpful. He is a busy man, during our stay he was preparing the pool, continental breakfast and tending the front desk. All with a huge welcoming smile..

Very nice comfortable room. Breakfast ok but nothing exciting. Were charged a $10 service fee for the night’s stay which we thought was over the top hence the downgrade to 3 stars. Had paid in advance and no mention of this fee on our receipt.

I love this little place Disclaimer: I normally don’t like accommodations with outside doors; however, this one did not disappoint. It has been recently updated- nice furnishings, very spacious, and a VERY comfy bed. It was quiet even though close to a road. They are dog- friendly and even provided a goody bag for my dog upon arrival- nice perk! I even left a couple of clothing items behind and the staff was very helpful with that and helping getting them shipped to me- I appreciate that! I would definitely stay here again!

Room adequate, breakfast terrible, clean but felt tatty. Sadly there is little to more to say about this motel type residence. It was functional but forgettable, it was however a good price for the states.

ASCEND COLLECTION???? That is a joke. I can not believe that this is what Choice considers Ascend. This place needs to be updated at over $300 a nite, not worth it. The bathroom was not clean, the floor was dirty, dirty. Woul not stay here again.

What made the stay memorable was the staff at the front desk. Favorite was Moya Hendricks. Thoughtful and accomodating with our requests for beach passes, unbrellas, and her attitude and cheerfulness started our day off in a positive way. At one point she came around the desk to show us directions rather than just telling us information. Moya made our vacation feel special.
