We loved this hotel!! Perfect location one block from beach, close to everything yet further from all of the tourists and noise. We saved a lot of money on eating out by using our kitchen in our room that had everything we needed. We loved having the sauna a few steps away from our back sliding glass doors. Room 107.... More

I booked this hotel on line as a visit to the beautiful Gulf Coast, whilst we were staying in Orlando I chose one of the premium rooms by the pool. Ryan the front desk manager met us on arrival, and showed us to our room and the pool facilities. We were delighted. The room was a small suite, right by... More

Thank you for your honest feedback. As you mentioned, there are a few sections of our property which are to say the least a bit dated. We are presently working on updating each one of our guest rooms, while still attempting to retain the charm which comes with a traditional style beach hotel. While it is nice hear that one... More

We only stayed 2 nights, but I was impressed with this hotel. It is an old-style hotel - one floor with rooms surrounding inner courtyards. It appears that many updates have been made and more are in the works. We had a room with direct access to both the pool area and the shuffle board court. It had a small... More

This place had a great location just a couple of blocks away from Mandalay(pretty much the strip). The room was clean as the staff were attentive and asked if we needed anything when we saw them. Parking is right by your room with a parking block for your specific room. We were within a half a mile from almost everything.... More

We stayed here for 1 night while in town for a wedding. It was a great value and we were surprised to find the room included a kitchen area as well. While the building and rooms are older than others in the area, the value for the room is great, and we didn't need all the bells and whistles. It's... More

This was the perfect spot for a little beach getaway! Rooms are updated and very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Even though the location is not directly on the beach it is about a 3 minute walk. Can't wait to come back. Next time we will stay longer.
