Stayed at the same hotel a number of years ago, and was impressed enough at that time to add Fort Lauderdale to our itinerary in order to visit Riverside this year. Not disappointed! Staff at the front desk were exceptional and made every effort to accommodate our early arrival. For reasons that were unclear to all of us, we were...

Only stayed one night on our way to Naples, but we had a great time. The room was small, but spacious enough with a renovated bathroom. Pool area was a short walk across the street but in a nice tropical area on the intercostal where you can see all of the boats drive by. Food and drink service available at...

Stayed here for a night before cruise. Location to restaurants perfect and the bar at the restaurant was a lot of fun. The hotel is old and dated but it was clean and the beds very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We took a shuttle to the port in the morning for $2 each.
