"Convenient to the beach and jazz festival. Great hotel. The room was clean and spacious. My only complaint is that the AC wouldn't shut off. The staff was courteous and helpful. Good parking.2017-04-26"
"The hotel was nice and clean, and the location was perfect. No washcloths provided; I called the front desk and was told someone would bring them, but no one did. We ended up asking housekeeping, and they brought some promptly. Check-in was quick, but the clerks weren't friendly. The checkout clerk was much nicer. We'd stay here again.2022-06-27"
"Not worth the price. This hotel was deplorable. The room wasn't clean, and there was mold from a leaking AC. The cot had a stained mattress pad, and the bedsheets were also stained. Spilled soda around the vending machine wasn't cleaned up for 2 days, and there were dead bugs on the floor. The front desk clerk wasn't helpful, and we had to wait for her to finish texting before she acknowledged us. Find another place to stay.2019-07-23"

"The hotel was old but in good shape. The entrance to the parking lot was interesting. Not a bad place to stay.2017-10-04"
"Easy beach access and plenty of restaurants nearby. The mounted TV was small and far from the bed. The shower mechanism was confusing. The continental breakfast was OK. Good Chinese food at Jin Jin King.2015-09-05"
"The resort was beautiful, and the room was nice. The only problem was some sand on the floor. I enjoyed the pool area and the outdoor bar with a gulf view. If you have children, they'll love this place. The kids' pool area was awesome, and there were lots of activities for and movies.2017-04-25"
"The hotel was falling apart. I had to call the front desk daily to keep the AC running. There was only one chair in the room, and no lamp on the desk. The elevator operation was spotty. People hung out in the parking lot playing loud music until 3 AM. I left a day early. Stay away from this place.2021-04-27"
"The carpet in our room looked dingy, and the furniture was outdated. The hallway floors, walls, and stairways hadn't been maintained. The best parts of our stay were the housekeepers, front desk clerks, and the amazing view of the ocean. Good complimentary breakfast. An OK motel if you're not looking for anything fancy, but it wasn't worth the price.2018-04-26"
"Not a good value. I received a gruff reception from the attendant when I arrived. The condo was dirty, and it was a trudge to reach it. Not enough toilet paper provided, and there was no housekeeping service. The parking garage was poorly designed, so I had to park while trying to avoid being hit by speeding cars in the opposite direction.2019-04-30"
"The hotel was clean and reasonably priced. The room wasn't cleaned while we were out, so we asked for fresh towels and in-room coffee. The front desk clerks were courteous. Breakfast was minimal but good.2022-05-17"
"Close to the beach. Decent rates. Our hotel stay was all right, but renovations were underway in the lobby. The work started at 7 AM, and the workers had music blasting. The pool was heated and indoors, not pleasant in Florida. Breakfast ended at 9 AM, which was early for a weekend. You won't have any issues here once renovations are done.2016-07-19"
"Nice experience. The room was dusty, and the furniture in the living area was dated. I was disappointed that one of the hot tubs wasn't working and one was dirty. The employees were friendly and helpful. I recommend staying here.2018-04-25"
"An average motel. Smoking rooms were available.2019-12-10"

"I had a peaceful stay at this motel. The service was good, and we had a great time. You won't be sorry if you stay here.2018-04-03"
"I had a bad experience at this motel. The room was outdated and not very clean, and there was a lot of noise from outside. The TV didn't work, the AC controls didn't work well, and we only got a partial role of toilet paper. The toilet didn't flush well, and when we returned in the afternoon, the room keys didn't work. Don't stay here.2017-01-25"
"Good motel for the price. The staff was polite.2016-08-03"
"The people in the room next door argued until 2:30 AM, and people smoked in non-smoking rooms. Don't stay at this motel.2017-07-04"
"The motel room was dirty and smelled musty. The AC was noisy, and the carpet was ripped. It wasn't ready at check-in time, either. Find another place to stay.2015-07-30"
"The motel was clean and reasonably priced. It was spring break in town, so it was a zoo, but the manager was nice, helpful, and respectful, and good with handling non-guest moochers at breakfast.2015-04-09"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
