My fiance and I stayed here for one night, thinking it would be a good alternative to a pricey resort 1 mile down the road where we attended a wedding. After all, all we needed was somewhere to dress for the party and somewhere to crash afterwards.
1. Good-sized room with a large-screen TV and a fridge.
2. Location right off I-95.
3. Our room was quiet, presumably because our room was away from the road and looking towards the pool.
4. A very robust air conditioner kept us cool.
1. A large insect crawled out from under the bed. I admit I don't know what kind of insect it was before it was dealt with (not by me).
2. My fiance needed to iron his clothes before the wedding. After plugging in the iron, the room filled with a nasty smell. At first we took it to be dust from an unused iron, but it turned out there was some kind of reddish substance caked onto the iron. Thankfully, we noticed it before using it and ruining the clothes.
3. We called the front desk, but it took almost 15 minutes before they were able to find another iron. The front desk clerk was very apologetic, but this really should have been checked ahead of time.
4. Some of the furniture was dusty, particularly those areas not often used, such as shelves under the nightstand.
5. There was a musty smell in the bathroom.
6. The towels were more like loofas, removing a whole layer of skin (but presumably improving our circulation).
While the price was definitely significantly below that of a pricey resort, it wasn't so low that it made these kinds of issues acceptable.
