AAA Inspector Notes
The hotel is a short drive from the beach and downtown shopping venues. It is great for families as some rooms have a sleeper sofa and can sleep up to six. Rooms are spacious and have a wet bar area. Colors throughout the property are pleasing using a mix of teals and browns. Covered by a pergola, there is an outdoor seating area that has a fire pit and a large flat-panel television to enjoy while relaxing after a long day of travel. A resident alligator and several turtles reside in the pond that is right next door. If you love wildlife, enjoying their activity can make for an interesting way to spend the evening. Smoke free premises. 132 units. 3-4 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: My husband and I were here for our son's Youth National's Rowing Regatta. The hotel was also filled with rowers, coaches and parents. The staff handled the higher volume with ease, accommodating visitors by opening their breakfast service earlier than usual so athletes and parents were able to eat before heading out for a day of racing. The breakfast scramble I had was great--made even better by the sunny lady who served it, Sandy. Our room was spotless, the bed was comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located.
Cons: The margarita I ordered at the bar could be a whole lot better. The mix the bartender used was awful.
