                Hotel was close to airport and beach nice rooms and clean...my tv was not working (they did nothing to fix it after I called I had to Dix it) ne'er received my wakeup call and they had no explanation for me not receiving one so wouldnt stay there again

                Difficult to evaluate, the hotel was in the works! I found a cockroach in the room! Until evaluates how well it was not this episode!

                The hotel was under renovation, a lot of noise, traveling employees, many employees working at the pool, I avoided in! I found a cockroach in the room ... I believe that with the new administration should improve. I had booked 3 nights but only stayed one night!

                Hotel was in reconstruction (which we were not informed about when booking), so there were noisy workers and machinery all day. It was impossible to use the pool, they were knocking off the tiles around this area. Waste (boxes of Pizza etc.) was stored in front of the elevator and has not been removed for 4 days! They should better close the hotel during renovation!

                The location for my stay was ideal.

                Its noisy being close to the main road and a level crossing for trsins that sounded the horns until about 3 in the morning. If your a heavy sleeper you will be fine

                The hotel itself is great! Wonderful clean rooms, nice pool, they have a restaurant with live entertainment almost every day.

                The location. It's 15 min drive to the ocean, and nothing around except kfc and McDonalds. We spent so much money on cabs (that are really expensive).

                Everything was great. It was relaxing. I loved their courtyard. It was beautiful. There was a lady at the bar and I couldn't quite remember her name but she was wonderful. She gave me a free birthday cake and was a wonderful woman. When I was late coming off my Palmer for check in time the staff were really understanding. I know there were trains that past by the hotel but I'm a new Yorker so it didn't really bother me and the rooms were clean all the time.

                The only thing that I probably didn't like about it was that it was by the highway but its not too much of a complaint with me. I wish I could've stayed longer.

                The rooms are very clean and the designs are unique very relaxing. But they need to keep the parking lot cleaner

                The parking lot area is not attractive. Too dirty

                The staff at the hotel was very nice and helpful, we initially got a king sized suite and needed some extra room, so they easily switched us over to a double be suite to help convenience us. The pool looked so amazing, sadly we didn't get to go in. The bird cages when you head outdoors is very cool and unique. The little private huts and tables that are around the pool area are also nice, allowing some private time with whoever you're staying with.

                The rooms were clean but had a really bad dewy smell that would creep up on you sometimes - and it was disturbing. The train passes by right behind the hotel but it wasn't a big deal. From the outside entrance the hotel looks very old and not very welcoming but once you enter everything about that changes, it is very nice inside.

                Very nicely decorated lobby and common areas room was nice, pool area was nice The resurant was awesome and will probably be one of the main reasons for me to return again in the future. The food was a great value and the staff was awesome. I liked the rate I got on line and will tell my associates and friends

                The only thing I did not like was I was promised an exended check out time, (1:00) pm and the cleaning staff at 12:15 knocked once and as I was attempting to answer the door as I was going to take a shower just walked right into my room and caught me naked. Very awkward and invasave.

                The hotel was cheap and okay for a quick stop. It was clean and fine for a weekend. The only negative point was train horns through the night. But if your a deep sleeper you will be fine.
