“Very good location with a wonderful beach.”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Management and Staff made you feel welcomed the moment you walk in the door. There was not a time whenever I was not warmly greeted by a staff member. The hotel is located right on a wonderful and beautiful beach. There were staff everywhere working and they were very friendly. The hotel was clean and kept up well. I truly enjoyed my stay and would return again. I enjoyed having the chair and umbrella provided on the beach as well as the Daily DVD rental that was provided as a service.

We had a very nice view of the gulf. It was very loud outside all evening even at 9 pm. The rooms were run down and looked like the 1980's. The rooms do not look like their pictures. It was very overpriced for the the room, carpet was nasty and gritty . The halls were very hot and felt just nasty. If I were you and wanting to stay at this hotel I think I would like to look at the room first. I would not have stayed there if I had see it first. We could not cancel because we booked on priceline.

Went here last year and the place was great! My daughter had a fantastic time on the beach and the pool areas were nice.
The room was spacious and we loved the kitchen and nice sized living room with dining room.
I think it's a great place to travel and stay with a family on a budget! We had a beautiful room that faced the ocean and my daughter loved the free DVD rentals they offered nightly.

We stayed last July 2011.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean, it's worth it!

Stayed here in the dead of summer on a business trip and was on the ground floor. I don't know if it was an issue with the AC or just the right combination of heat, humidity and the AC but the entire room was wet which made it very uncomfortable. I was only there for three nights and was working all day so it wasn't a huge issue for the most part but the Hampton Inn just up the street is a bit nicer and just as close to the beach.

Room Tip: Certainly not the ground floor.

Dear Mr. David;

Thank you for taking time to share your issues with us. We are in the midst of ourguest rooms renovation. It was unfortunate that the building in which your room is located has not been touched yet. That room should be done by the end of this week. We appreciate your feedback as we continue to improve our product.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Staff is very friendly, rooms are good-very good. Pool is great and this area of the beach is perfect. I stay here every time I come down for a meeting at Eglin AFB. Hotel honors the government per diem rates. Breakfast is not included, but the restaurant prices are reasonable.

This resort is located right on the beach and is wonderful. There were staff everywhere working and they were very friendly. The hotel was clean and kept up well. There is a little outside Tiki bar located on the property. We chilled there with a great bartender named Willy. Great personality and very genuine. If you ever are there ask for him.
The resort has its own private section of the beach offering umbrellas and chairs. We also ate at the restaurant in the hotel which was also a good meal. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. We would recommend this hotel to anyone!
