Hotel has a great location. Unfortunately, tons of families with cooking in rooms and smell of cooking all over including in the rooms. Cleaning left a lot to be desired. Mold in shower, maid did not even bother to empty coffee pot. Manager gave lame excuse it was a "FL Law" that they couldn't clean out the coffee pot, too bad he made the excuse to a lawyer who knew the law and all we could do is simply laugh at him. Ran out of towels for beach. Just were very unprepared for the busy 4th of July weekend like it was the first time it ever happened. However, the desk staff was overly friendly and tried their best. Day after 4th of July, pool was so trashed by the families there that it had to be closed all day. No ice available to guests for drinks. If it were not for the magnificent view of the fireworks up and down the whole beach this place would have been a disaster. I cannot say this place is terrible, but if they put in a little more effort the place could be spectacular and they did not seem like they wanted to put forth that effort. If you have a family and are on a low budget vacation where you want to cook at your own food and hang out by the pool drinking and smoking then fine you can do that here. The beds were like sleeping on a floor, very hard. Air conditioning barely cooled the room even at 62 degrees. The place is old and needs a major face lift.
