5.4 Fair
Pros:Location to the beach was the best part.
Cons:Mismatched furniture, motel 6 vibe with 4 star prices, moldy smell in room that permeates your clothes and suitcases, carpet felt wet and dirty, TVs that are either laughably small and or do work properly, property description does not match real life; we felt like we got a bait and switch. Had to change rooms because of overwhelming mold smell, second room smelled better but was in the same dingy condition as the first. I feel bad for the employees as they seem to be making the best of a bad property, this place needs a total renovation and then they can get away with charging the rates they charge.
9.7 Wonderful
Cons:The kayaks were a bit worn out and they didn’t have enough paddles. It was still fun and they were at no additional cost which was fantastic!
8.5 Very good
Pros:Helpful and friendly staff. Great location.
Cons:Older facility.
7.1 Good
Pros:location, pool and amenities
Cons:Broken A/C Unit that did not cool the room and was too loud to sleep. I took my Dad for his 60th birthday and both he and my mother could barely sleep :(
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We like all about, location, room, amenities ...
Cons:If you are not a independent person, this hotel it's not for you... it's no one around the hotel to ask, like others hotels were basically you need to say "hello" to everyone were you move around the propriety, it's more the feeling of renting an apartment. But this don't bother me it all, to me.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Found great shells on the beach right out front. Awesome pool. Free bikes and kayaks. They set up chairs and umbrellas every morning. Love the beds and having a large fridge and oven in room. Very nice staff. Nice spot on the island.
7.7 Good
Pros:I did like the closeness to beach, also that all the amenities were included like the use of bikes, kayak, paddleboard and also a lot of beach umbrellas and chairs on the beach. Very quiet place to stay.
Cons:The staff were a lit of bit rude. We were there early at12 and chech in was at 4pm and check out at 11, they did nothing to try to gave us a room earlier we wait for our room until 2pm.
4.5 Mediocre
Pros:The chairs and umbrellas on the beach where great! Always out on time! The use of their bikes was great, we used then every day! The beach was beautiful and very clean!
Cons:Was disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. Upon arrival our door trim was broken, dust stuck to trim and hair from another guest. Food stuck on "clean" silverware in drawer. Walls need to be painted, dirty walls, chipped paint, mildew on curtains and a musty smell. The bikes needed some matinees, oil the squeaky parts and fix the broken baskets. Only one bike with a basket and it was broken. Not sure if we would stay again. The price would have to be quite a bit less than we paid. Stayed in many supper 8 and other Cheeper places that where much nicer.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Location, view, pool, beach, facilities, extras
Cons:Our short stay
7.1 Good
