The room was ocean front and had a balcony to enjoy the view. The room was good size bu the bathroom area could have been a little larger. All rooms are smoke free but the balconies are not so you will probably smell smoke while sitting outside. Great beach area. The resort is not close to many of the restaurants....

We reserved a room on the street side of the motel. The room was quite small: just big enough for a queen bed, TV stand/dresser, and a refrig/microwave. After we checked in and started unloading we noticed wetness. There was a large amount of water in one corner of the room out into the path from the bed to the...

This is the perfect place for rest and relaxation. It is located at the quiet end of Front Beach rd away from the high rise hotels, restaurants and amusement. But it is close enough to stores to get food and drinks. We were lucky enough to get a 7th floor room which has the perfect view. The hotel is quiet...

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here in a 2 room suite with Jack & Jill bathroom. The view was amazing! Beach access was awesome and far enough down the strip form the partying crowd. We also had a kitchenette. The water pressure in the shower was sad but that's the only thing I have negative to say. The staff...

This is located on the beach, seems like all rooms have a ocean facing balcony. Stayed in room 312 which is a great location, near the stairs and has nice ocean views. The hotel also has elevators if you cant take the stairs. Room is spacious and clean, but its very outdated and worn down, like every other hotel in...

I definitely recommend this hotel. Its not fancy, but it has everything you need, private balcony, pool,hot tub, patio, its own bar, close to publix and stores. Also the staff was very very nice. This is great for a weekend trip. Negatives: elevator is slow and it looks kind of old when you pull in to the parking lot....but those...
