Worth It!

I have literally never spent money on a hotel and said it’s worth it.......until now! The staff is amazing and they made us feel right at home every single minute of our stay! The shuttle driver built a relationship with us and made us feel safe at all times! The servers for breakfast were amazing and wouldn’t let us get out of our seats for anything! We will definitely stay here again! They definitely made our mini vacation a great one!



Great Place

We had room 412. It was updated , nice, clean and great view of the water and shoreline. We stayed here for an Elton John concert. Glad we picked this place. Has a decent restaurant down stairs, and we ordered room service and they brought it up. I would recommend asking for a room with a "view". It's definitely an old hotel that's been updated in many spots, but some not so much. Some parts seem very 80s. But overall we were very pleased. Would love to return in the summer with the kids!
