Property conditions & facilities



3/5 Okay

Disliked: Amenities
Check in and Check out process was terrific. Staff did well in their efforts to provide a safe and comfortable stay. The suite upgrade experience was nice. However, this was interrupted by electrical issues involving the TV which had to be manually operated to work (as instructed by staff). Suggestion:New batteries for remote? Secondly, I recommend that cleaning staff be more mindful of where they position their work carts. This Includes where they place/handle quest's personal travel items when cleaning inside the units. At times, cleaning carts sat directly in front of guest's suites. Entering and leaving my room became a challenge because a cleaning cart was blocking my front door. Cleaning staff at one time had entered my room without knocking while I was getting ready and dressed for my day. After a while, I tipped extra in an effort to avoid these interruptions. Shower provided only cold water throughout my stay. The breakfast was hot and delicious. The pool could use some cleaning. Close to beach and many attractions although near busy street. Request quiet room if you're a light sleeper.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room smell so bad that we had to leave the hotel, and we went to other hotel way better for the same price. We booked the room for 3 nights, we only stay one night, and the receptionist didn't give us back the money for the last night. We left this hotel very disappointed. We definitely don't recommend it.
