Everything was clean, seemed like our room was recently renovated. Fridge and microwave were great. Breakfast was good. Nice selection. Pool area was not well lit and kind of small, but functional. Convenient location to the area. I would stay there again.

Stayed here for my son's Navy graduation. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The Hotel streams the graduation and has a small reception afterwards. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Nice place to stay.

Rude staff and mold in the bathroom

I brought my family here so we could visit my sister in law in the Navy. Things started out fine then there was a birthday party of teenagers which is normally fine but this group kept screaming at the top of the lungs in the pool area. I asked them to keep it down and when they started up again I asked to hotel staff and they ignored my request to ask the girls to keep it down or find their mother to keep it down. I called down stairs several times after 9:00 pm to keep ask the girls to be quiet and the staff ignored me again but after 9:30pm offered me a new room but my step son was already asleep. The next day I tried to talk to the new staff and I was taked over and down to. I couldn't get a word in when i was trying to explain I don't mind teenagers having a good time but no one should be screaming that loud and i paid for my family and I to enjoy this hotel and we were extremely disappointed with the staff, the lack of cleaning, and lack of respect. I will never stay at this hotel again and I warn others how disappointed you'll be.

I am so sorry that you didn't have a great experience due to other guests! I understand how difficult it is to rest when there are guests that continue to make noise. We do have quiet hours in place from 10pm to 7am for this reason. I am sorry that some guests could not respect and follow the policy put in place. I do apologize that you were not pleased with the way your concern was handled. I will show my Front Desk staff your comments so that we can be more proactive, in order to provide better customer service! Priti Bheda General Manager
