I had to be switched to a different room 3 times due to issues with the room that included water damage and mold. Management was notified and offered no compensation for my time and interrupted stay. She didn’t even get back to me as promised. The area looks a little shady and the hotel is not well kept. The carpet in the common areas is beyond dirty and the hotel has an odor.

Great check in and close to everything


July 25, 2022

My wife and my kids checked in on 7/23 and stay 2 nights. The check in was easy, person recognized my IHG status and offered us a complementary snack or points. Rooms were clean, pool was clean. Fitness center was adequate. The laundry room is free, just bring your own soap. Very close to restaurants and a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed going to the pool on Sunday morning with my boys and checked out. I will stay here again in the future.
