This is a very well maintained property that feels like going back to the 1960s. Very cool décor and old school feel. Terrific rep at check in. We were pleasantly surprised by how spotlessly clean the grounds and room were. Room was very spacious. We needed a dog friendly hotel and they have several rooms with tile floor for pet...

The staff was very friendly and informative. The room was clean and beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and the pool and hot tub were great! Close to all attractions! We stayed during the week and it was not a problem to get late check out. We would recommend to ALL!

Price was very affordable and rooms and lobby were tastefully decorated! Very clean and easy accessible location!! We enjoyed our stay here and have no complaints! Staff was excellent to deal with from front desk to housekeeping. Wifi gave us issues however the staff went above and beyond to restart the modem to help clear the problem. Thank you!!

Very nice hotel. Location was good. At first, we were given a room (#254)with a view to a gallery behind a concrete wall. It was quite dark in the room so I requested another room for the 3 nights we would be staying and it was no problem. We got #269 and this room was better, lighter and very nice....

Loved this place as the room was spacious, clean, beds and pillows were comfortable and we even had a mini fridge. The bathroom was snug but room enough for what you need to do. Breakfast in the Waffle Cafe is a 'must'! The best coffee I have ever had in an American cafe. Great value and staff are friendly, helpful...

Rooms are small, but service and friendliness are excellent. Problem with safe was corrected immediately. Waitresses and waiters were prompt and very personable. Location was great, close to our granddaughter's home. Also close to Seaworld and other attractions.
