Recent reviews

Very Good 8.4 From 327 reviews

Good 6.0
Great location, poor building.
Location was great for beach and shopping/eating. Hotel itself is rough. Although we arrived at 3pm, still needed to wait an hour to get room ready. The room was quite small with very poor condition in bathroom. Shower head was strangely positioned less than 5 feet from floor. Water pressure was a drizzle. Operation of the faucet was a complete mystery to adjust water temp as well as how to shut off. These issues made showering a nightmarr. Room cleaning was minimal with fewer and fewer towels and washcloths each day.

We’ll Still Come Back
We have stayed here several times. The front desk staff is wonderful. The housekeepers are very nice. Everything was clean. We did have an unexpectedly bad experience in the restaurant for breakfast. The waiter took our drink order and brought us our drinks and we got the buffet breakfast, and we never heard back from our waiter again we had to ask another waiter 30 minutes later to get their drinks refilled. That was bad but it was not enough to keep us from coming back. We really like this hotel.

Great location
A great location, right across the road from the beach and a short walk to St. Armand’s Circle with shopping and restaurants. The room was comfortable if a bit dated. Some things, such as the sliding door and a.c. unit were in need of repair.
