We stayed at the Comfort Suites because of the location, it looked close to the beach (website said oceanfront) and the price was right. Turns out it's actually across the street from the beach. Not a huge deal, since you can walk right over to the Holiday Inn across the street and use their beach access. But still, we had a requested a view, and got a view of the equally crappy hotel next door. The location was good for what we wanted and it felt very safe. We were on the end of the hotel by the pool, which made it very noisy all night as the door opened and closed and wet children ran up and down the halls. Still, not too big of a deal, since we were out for a while and the noise ended at 11. However, the noise upstairs was ridiculous?! omg, how thin are the walls? It sounded like a family of 10 was bowling, all night and into the next day. I have no idea what was going on up there, but it was VERY noisy! The bed was pretty comfortable and there was a nice sized TV, microwave and fridge. The carpet and couch were covered in stains, so much so that I didn't want to sit on it; the room is in much need of an update. The workout room had a weight machine, a treadmill and a couple of bikes. The TV in there didn't work and the view was again, just the crappy motel next door. The treadmill was soo wobbly, i felt like i might fly off and hit the glass in front of me. There were quite a few options for breakfast and the front desk staff was very nice. I probably wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet night, don't stay near the pool!

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend for a short family vacation. We were able to check in to our room early - about 1:30pm. We had booked a King oceanview room and asked to be situated close to our friends who traveled with us. We were directly across the hall from them, which was great. We were on the 4th floor.

Our oceanview window gave us a great view of the beach across the street (past the Holiday Inn). If you are sensitive to noise at night, the music from the Holiday Inn in these rooms may be a problem, but it doesn't bother us. I would guess it stops somewhere between 11-12am.

Our room was large and comfortable for the 3 of us. Very typical of a Comfort Suites with a pull-out couch in the living area. The WiFi wasn't great - you couldn't do much beyond surfing a few websites and checking your email. I attribute this to the full occupancy of the hotel over the holiday.

The location makes it very easy to walk across the street to the beach. You are allowed to walk through the Holiday Inn parking lot and down to the water. The showers aren't all that close, but there are 2 showers next to the pool at the hotel where you can wash off some of that sand.

We had an issue on our 2nd day with housekeeping. We got back to our room by 2:45 and our room was still not made up. We saw her next door and she said she would get to us after 4. No problem - our daughter was going to take a quick nap and we were headed out to the beach. When we got back at 5pm, our room had barely been vacuumed (as evidenced by the sand still remaining on the floor), towels had been replaced and the bed had been made. No trash had been emptied and both trash cans had been full. I can overlook housekeeping for beds/sheets/etc, but I'd really like the trash taken out - those small things fill up fast!

My only other minor complaint was the lack of a bathtub in the king room. This hotel obviously attracts families, so I'm not sure why there was an oversight in the bathtub decision making! That said, our friends in a 2 queen room DID have a bathtub.

Breakfast was good every morning. Hot, fresh and the staff was constantly making sure everything was in stock. He was very helpful. Breads/pastries/cereal, eggs, biscuits, sausage/bacon, waffles, etc. It was always crowded but manageable.

The cost is a big high, but I recognize that is because of the location. Beware there is ONE way in and out of this hotel on the island and traffic can back up! Just live on "island time" and don't expect to make it anywhere fast. There are some good restaurants within 10 minutes.

We would stay here again if the value was right. It was a good location for a quick weekend getaway.

They said it was oceanfront but it is on the other side of the road from the ocean. I guess you see it with a good pair of binoculars. This is supposed to be an "elite" room, but there are no chairs on the balcony and the seal on the window in the master bedroom is broken so you can't see out. Just awful. At $300 a night I expect everything to be perfect and as described.

This hotel is actually across the street from the beach block and the Holiday Inn which is on the beach, but we did have a view of the ocean from our balcony. The hotel itself could be cleaner! The carpets needed a thorough vacuuming both in the halls and our room. They should really be replaced, as should the sofa in our King suite. It was worn and dirty looking, so we did not sit on it directly - put towels down where we sat! The coffee table was very old and chipped! The door to the balcony looked like it had been picked up at a yard sale - someone's old front door! And there was black mold in the corner of the shower.

All that said though, the place was ok - the front desk and other staff were always helpful and friendly, the hotel is across from the beach so must get lots of use and sand tracked in, etc, the breakfast was the usual cold cereal, fresh fruit, Light yoghurt, mini muffins, toast and dry cereal and "eggs". My favorite was the do-it-yourself waffles! That and fresh fruit was enough to keep me going to lunch.

The linens were crisp and clean and there were plenty of towels. However, I don't understand the small blanket - on the King bed it barely reached the two sides! And the pillows (5 of them) were hard and small and too high, but that is what I found in all the Comfort Inns.

There were plenty of wooden hangers and the TV worked fine. The safe never worked but then they did not charge for it either. The pool was rather dirty and sandy and uninviting.

On Saturday evening the music from the Holiday Inn was excruciatingly loud, but thankfully stopped after 9 pm.

All in all, we would stay here again because of the location and price.

Room Tip: The King suite facing the ocean, with a tiny balcony was great. Wish they had chairs and a table - it would be perfect!
