Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and infant. Great spot right on the water with kitchen and plenty of space. Really can't ask for more! Would definitely stay here again! The only down side was a dog that kept barking one night because it is pet friendly. But we have dogs so I also thought it was neat that... More

We loved our stay. Room was sufficient, great view, stayed on the third floor. Wonderful beach, dog friendly and relatively deserted once you walked north. Best of all is their pet policy...no size, pound limit on the size of your dog. The staff was extremely nice. The breakfast was fantastic. Everything made from scratch. Loved the laid back little beach... More

For Vilano beach, this is as good as it gets. That's not saying a lot. It's relatively clean, and on the beach. But the beach is not very attractive and the hotel is just average. The front desk staff are extremely unfriendly and rude. We asked for a half hour late check out so we could shower after coming from... More

Thank you for your comments. We do understand that folks want to linger a bit longer at the beach on a beautiful day! Late checkout is our most common request - and unfortunately, that means it is very difficult for us to do and still have our rooms cleaned and ready for the guests arriving that day. We apologize that... More

Our stay was everything we could have hoped for and more. Perfect location. All photos are true to the property unlike alot of other hotels.

I read almost all of the reviews before settling on this place. It seems like the manager reads everything and tries to make improvements, so I am going to try to make any complaints constructive.
