Staff were friendly and the room was clean and a good size. Unfortunately water pressure in the shower wasn't great. There was some noise heard from the hallway and from other rooms. The balcony door did not lock properly. Definitely visit Shawty's Cafe.

We were staying elsewhere but were able to dine casually for the buffet dinner. We found there was a good selection & we both thoroughly enjoyed our 3 courses.
