I booked this hotel for a trip with friends and it was perfect! Yes, at first you may be like really??? The pictures of the outside of the hotel make you think it's an old school motel which it is...but completely renovated. Everything is clean and modern in the rooms. The grounds are kept nicely and the pool area is AWESOME! The hotel is 2 blocks from the beach so you can walk. It's easy to get to pretty much anywhere you want to go. It was so convenient to have a small kitchen. We could make our own coffee every morning, toast bagels for breakfast and keep our leftovers from the restaurants cold. We stayed in a Deluxe Queen suite and the price could not be beat for the area. It was a huge space and had anything you might need for a weeks vacation. I was glad to hear they updated their staffing policy and now have someone on site 24 hours a day. Some people wrote in their reviews that was a concern someone was only there til 8 pm. This has now changed. The reason I chose this hotel was because of the reviews and I would recommend to anyone I knew travelling to the area that they stay here. What a great deal and vacation we had.

Here are a couple of things to note:
`The AC is next to one of the beds so if you sleep in that bed be prepared to be a little chilly. `The second bed may not be as cool as you though.
There are 2 tv's one for the bed area and one for the living space.
`The floors were a little sticky...could have been our own fault but I don't remember spilling anything. I don't discredit the hotel for this. Everything was very clean and well maintained.
`Someone mentioned in a review that there was plastic on the beds that made a noise but we didn't have that in our room. I'm picky about beds but this one was actually quite comfortable!
`They have real keys. How cool is that?? Everyone is so electronic nowadays.
`Staff was great, we needed extra towels and we got them right away.
`Quiet rooms...we didn't hear noise from people at the pool in the evening or day time.

Hope you all find this review helpful. If we travel to the area again we would definitely stay here.

Very new and clean rooms with modern, all-white furniture and terrazzo flooring. Appreciated the lining on the curtains which blocked out the light for late morning sleeping. Comfortable bedding and very quiet air conditioning. Front desk attendants very friendly. Unfortunately, need to walk by a couple of abandoned motels to get to the beach. One of them was billowing smoke as it was being used by the fire dept for training the Saturday of our stay.

Cris C,
Thanks so much for staying with us. During your stay, the fire department was doing safety training and we are sorry if the smoke affected you. The good news is that next time you visit those abandoned motels will not be there! We appreciate your review and hope that your next visit will be soon! Take care, NBV

This hotel is just fabulous. Our room was HUGE and without a doubt the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were sweet, helpful and just lovely. The heated pool is small but very clean and a nice escape from the heat.

You can walk to the beach and many restaurants easily.

One tip for the ladies...the room does provide free shampoo but does not offer conditioner or body lotion. Since we were only staying for a short weekend, I hadn't brought stuff with me. There is no mini-mart or pharmacy within an easy walk to go buy that stuff either so bring it with you or stop in town before you come to the beach.

The rooms do have kitchens too so bring water, snacks, beverages since there is no place to buy that stuff for late night snacking.

We will definitely be back. For the price, I was overly satisfied.

We stayed here for a night on the way to the keys. Very stylish comfortable rooms a very short walk from the beach would definately stay here again. Parking is just by the hotel and included in the price. If you like to BBQ they even have a gas grill and utensils for guests

Fleetja,
Thank you so much for your fabulous review! We are always happy to offer complimentary parking and wi-fi to our guests. We know that it's tough to plan a vacation which is why we pride ourselves at our lack of "fine print". After all, you should be worrying about which swimsuit to wear to the beach, not have to struggle finding the bottom line! Thanks for staying with us. Take care, NBV

We stayed here in June after finding this hotel on Trip advisor and decided to try it out given the reviews. We did not want one of the big chain hotels but wanted something that was close to the beach, restaurant's, and the company we were diving with. We found the reviews to be spot on, and were very pleased with our stay. The room was VERY clean, bed comfortable. It's simple clean Scandinavian design but comfortable. Staff were very accommodating and went out of their way to may you feel pampered (frozen grapes and cold lavender towels brought out to you by the pool, great for those hot humid days) we were also allowed to use the pools across the street at the sister hotel Tanquilo (gives you 3 pools to use). Enjoyed our stay so much we are headed back there next week. The only complaint was the bathrooms need some hooks and another towel bar (easy fix!!)

13fins50,
We hope that you do return again soon....and when you do you'll find that we listened to your suggestions! In fact, Ocean Gate is going to merge with Tranquilo. It's currently being refreshed and will re-open even better than before. It will be a 3 building, 3 pool property, giving guests even more to love!
