We booked on booking.com. Reviews said rating of 6, pleasant. I booked and was notified of a cancellation fee of 50% of first day rate effective immediately. So, no turning back. The more reviews I read, the less confident I became. They varied greatly apparently so do the rooms. The first room they showed us #34 at Bonito's was a...

Our vacation was ruined as four out of the five nights we could not sleep with all the loud noise outside our door. Screaming hollering fighting loud rap music till 2 a.m., and pot smoking so much that we had to put a towel under our door to keep the smoke from billowing in. The last night of our stay...

My husband and I stayed here for a week as a last minute booking choice and after reading the reviews I was very scared as to what we'd gotten ourselves into. To our surprise the room was nice, there was room service every other day, and the room was small and cozy but we didn't plan on just staying in...

In a nutshell, a mediocre experience. Looking for a moderately priced, pet friendly motel I came across this property. I actually got a pretty good deal so I went ahead and booked it. The good: location is perfect, walking distance from everything. Friendly staff. Most linens are very clean or new. Flat screen TV. Decent furniture. Opportunities: no blankets! All...

I went here for my prom weekend and I was disappointed. The room was small and old, the shower didn't work and the staff were stand-offish. The pool was a breeding ground for death. Please avoid if possible or just stay home.

Booked a room at the Bonito and was bumped to the Binns hotel without any notice. Automatically was given a room key to the Binns like it was no big deal! This was our first time at this hotel so we initially didn't notice we were are a different hotel. The two hotels are connected. When we arrived a guy...

After reading the poor reviews from previous guests, I decided to take my chances anyway. I prepared myself with a "just in case" kit (consisting of my own sheets and towels, a roll of toilet paper, a can of bug spray and a canister of Lysol.) Turns out that I didn't really need them after all....except for the towels. For...
