This hotel is on the main clear water strip.. with the pier being about a 15-20 min walk from the hotel and marina. If you plan on going to the pier or marina a lot, I would not suggest this hotel. But this hotel is right on a beach .... its like a private beach. You cannot get to the...

Good value for the money. Has private beach, but small and gulf front with lots of fish, and hence, pelicans,which are fun to watch,but not swim with. Nice heated pool with hot tub. It was nice being able to hear the bands from neighboring properties late into the night, but pity the people trying to sleep early, because it was...

I booked the hotel over the phone for April 18-20. We requested a room that was on the quiet side of the hotel as we had read online one side of the hotel faces the live music next door. We got there late in the evening and had to go through 3 different rooms before finally deciding to check out...

I apologize that your request for a refund was denied, however, the room was accepted, removed from inventory and made unavailable to rent to others seeking accommodations that night. Entry into the 1st room was a staff error, (it was out of service and should not have been rented), and I apologize for the inconvenience that it may have caused...

Not the biggest, not the flashiest, no fancy restaurants. Just an outstanding medium size hotel with great rooms, exceptional cleanliness, and as friendly a staff as we've ever encountered anywhere. Maybe the halls are old and shabby but the rooms are clean with good beds. Remember it is on the beach and beautiful. The rates are reasonable for the average...

Stayed for two days. The best part about it was being next to Shephard's if you like that sort of scene at least. Otherwise music blares from there until about 2AM which sucks if you really need a good nights sleep, which we did since we had to be up at 530AM the next day for Iron Girl. Anyways, parking...
