We just stayed there for one night. The room was clean, pretty big and the price good. The bathroom was tiny and you couldn't close the sliding door properly. The area was quite noisy but beach and shopping area within walking distance. Nice view from the balcony. Service was friendly and very helpful.

The continental breakfast could use some work, in the way of protein. I was kind of disappointed that we didn't get upgraded, since my travel agent let them know it was...

Stayed for almost a week at this property. Let's start with the highlights: Location is good. Right near the canal and four longer blocks from the beach. Enjoy being away from the madness of the beach hotels. The lobby is bright and airy with a large TV. Nice place to seat to plan your day or wait for a tour...
