The Good
Guests typically enjoyed their stay

Although the hotel is older, many of the rooms are updated. Reviewers described these rooms as clean, quiet and well equipped with comfortable beds. The ocean views featuring cruise ships, neighbouring islands and mountain ranges were also a highlight for many. 

Guests liked the central, waterfront location which was walking distance to shopping, many restaurant choices, the boardwalk and the fishing pier. Some guests enjoyed nearby adventure tours.

Staff were helpful, efficient, cheerful and professional. 

Several guests enjoyed the free breakfast buffet with hot items, and one guest wrote, "The continental breakfast was very good, lots to choose from and fresh."

Recent guests also enjoyed the hotel's restaurant and called the food excellent and affordable.

The Bad
Occasionally guests offered some negative feedback, although overall the hotel seemed to be well liked.

Recent room complaints: room needed updating, no air conditioning in some rooms, no screens on the window, room was small, a poor view of parking lot or roof of the lower building, not enough cable stations for the TV, bathroom a bit small, and bed a bit hard. 

Some guests said breakfast ended too early (at 9 am) on weekdays for leisure travellers and it got crowded at times with bus tour groups.

Noise was sometimes mentioned from: traffic, doors slamming, guests in neighbouring room and the elevator, although many seemed to enjoy a quiet stay.

Other comments found: exterior of hotel looks old, hot tub next to equipment in the gym, and restaurant is uninviting and could use an update.
