7,7 Good
Pros:Room looked nice, great location to the boardwalk, housekeeping staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the free kayaks! That is the main reason we picked this hotel.
Cons:The floor in our room was very dirty. Our feet turned black when we walked across it.
7,4 Good
Pros:Location was great.
Cons:The pool doesn’t open until 9 am... this is way too late. Paddle board and kayak sign outs doesn’t start until 9 and there aren’t enough. The continental breakfast was rather bad. Food was stale and not enough protein. Consider adding eggs and/or more meat. Fix that damn waffle iron.
6,0 Okay
Cons:The bed and pillows could've been more comfortable. The toilet in the bathroom also kept on running and the fan didn't work.

6,0 Okay
Pros:Better than the last time we stayed. They are in the process of remodeling their rooms so our room was cleaner than it was on our last stay here.
