First the good. Location was great. Near everything you could possibly want. Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. Now the bad. The hotel is in bad need of an update.

We evacuated during hurricane Matthew to this facility. The staff were great. We needed a facility that allowed pets. My only issue was our room had a musty odor. I stayed at the facility before and don't remember it being an issue.

We stayed two nights at this HIE. Walked in and was immediately hit with how damp the room was so I went downstairs and requested a dehumidifier.
