Great hotel for a quick get-away. Kids love the swimming pool area and the room service. The breakfast variety is very good and the environment is pleasant and comfortable. The location is central so you can walk to the mall, and drive to the beach quickly which is about 5 min away.

This is my third time staying at this hotel and will definitely keep on coming back. Definitely one of the cleanest hotels and affordable. The bathrooms do however need some upgrading though but nevertheless was a good stay.

The stay at GCU was excellent. Good hospitality from employees in the dining area as well as the reception. The parking area is very small especially if you are driving double cab, otherwise the security was okay.
