Score from 88 reviews Very good
I did not like that fact that I could only check in at 3pm. I selected a morning check in time as the option was given through booking.com
Somehow the booking was made for December 13 to 15th instead of February 13 to 15th...
Easy access to I-95 and shopping areas.
The train tracks, too much noise
The train is close by Every half hour train goes by With horn blowing
Environment was nice and ambience.
The staff was teribble to my parents. Very long wait for attendance. Also even though the I booked with my credit card for my parents . The hotel wanted the credit card holder which is me daughter to be there. So they kept my family for long waiting hours with a very nasty attitude....
Room were clean, great lobby, good management.
Little more attention to very small details, like: spider web in some corners in hall way
newly revamped entrance and foyer, adequate pool area and rooms a fair size for group travellers
Location by rail line kept us awake. Rooms need upgrade and no crockery or cutlery in kitchenette so useless. Passage ways in bad condition making overall impression of hotel low budget.
The hotel staff couldn't be more accommodating and friendly. 5 stars.
The hotel lobby was nice like the pictures. The hotel rooms were run down looking. Changed three rooms in two nights, including paying to upgrade to a suite thinking it would be an upgrade. Both hdtvs were broken(and was not a high definition signal). The water was not clean in the toilet or bathtub. Hotel was advertised as a non-smoking hotel. Smokers all over the outside hallways and swimming pool area. The walls to the rooms are thin, because you hear all traffic and the train that runs right next to building. This hotel is not 3 stars.
Bed was comfortable
We heard trains making loud noise all night long. There were no chairs to sit in the room. Buffet Breakfast is not available in week days. Shampoo bottle broken and not fixed for three days.
Nothing! This place is a trap horrible customer service, they offer you free drinks online when booking then the bar is closed for 5days! And they dont have wifi working in the rooms but they fully advertise that online.
Everything!!! This place is a trap horrible customer service, they offer you free drinks online when booking then the bar is closed for 5days! And they dont have wifi working in the rooms but they fully advertise that online. These people have a phd in taking pics dont book this place based on its pictures!
Hotel room was better than I thought, I'd stay there again.
I didn't like the train you can hear it though out the day/night.
Rooms are a good size and clean. Grounds are very nice. Staff nice and helpful.
Noise level from trains wasn't good and beds need to be replaced...not comfortable at all.
The hotel pool was great. The rooms themselves were nicely decorated, though there were a few spots where you could see a little rust around the doorframe to the bathroom. For the money it was a good hotel, and you can tell they're trying to renovate the place and offer a good experience.
Ok, so I had 2 police show up at my room at 1AM. They said a woman placed a call from the room about someone trying to hurt himself. There was no woman in the room, and the police determined they had the wrong room. I went to bed, thinking nothing about it. The next morning, the hotel tells me I need to check out. They never got the story from the police that it was the wrong room, only that police came to my room. In many ways I was glad, as I was able to find a replacement hotel on the beach for just a few dollars more. The area the hotel is in is "rough". You can tell the hotel is trying to run a good establishment, but I wouldn't walk around in the neighborhood at night. And the train -- yes, the whistle is annoying and I'm a deep sleeper, but if you're a light sleeper and have a "city view" room, you will hear the train at least once an hour all day and night.
The beds are good. Room is Okay.
The wifi is very poor. You dont even find the wifi signal unless you go to lobby. If you complain about this they will give you silly reasons and will ask you to come to lobby to access/work. The Hotel is beside a railway track and there is lot of noise because of that. You can better motel for what you pay here. I wouldn't recommend this.
Bed, Front desk clerk attention.
The location was convient to access the cruise terminal
Our room maybe because it was booked through booking.com , was adjacent to the mechanical room housing the motor to the elevator, consequently we were subjected to this loud noise continuously, we feel this room should be eliminated.
I like their service very friendly and helpful.
We were taken early flight in the morning at 5:15am Unfortunately the hair dryer was out of order. They didn't prepared another one for emergency.
The bed apart from the fleas. Wifi worked well. Good location on the main autoroute (literaly). Free drink on arraival - you will need it..
No fridge in the bedroom - a disaster given the place and cost of drinks in the bar. Disgusting dirty hotel revolting bar and attracts really bad people. The bar scene when I went to get my free drink was like out of the bar scene in the first star wars movie. Check in staff incompetent and double took my considerable upfront payment for 5 days. The pool area awful. Never braved or even looked at the restaurant. Defensive staff of course. Constant noise from the autoroute and railway line it overlooks. Really rough clientele and on my final day when loading my car 2 cope were arresting a customer of the hotel in the car next to mine. Local facilities on foot awful. Serves that market well I fear. The actual room was OK.
Staff was very helpful and super friendly, especially Maritxa from the front desk. Housekeeping is so inconspicuous and I loved that. They were in and out without us ever seeing them. Pool and tropical garden were beautiful!
-Security could be better. -All our lamp shades looked like they were water damaged and were growing mold. -The water was yellow in the shower and toilet bowl.
There is a very strong, pervasive odor of mold in room 424 and that room should never have been rented in that condition. This is a health concern and the hotel is going to injure someone who may be immunocompromised or who may have respiratory issues. The moisture issue need to be resolved and the mold remediated. The room is currently uninhabitable--it's unsafe. I additionally notified the front desk of this issue.
I liked the service and the staff was very helpful with directions.
The curtains didn't close all the way
