Not in walking distance to anything, very far from restaurants and shopping. No shuttle to cruise terminal. Television needs serious upgrade, limited channels and no streaming. Beds very comfy. Room was very clean, hotel in good shape.

Thank you for feedback. While we do our best to accommodate all or our early check in requests , we sometimes have unforeseen circumstances that do not allow us to honor those requests at check in .

Check in was a breeze, the room was a little small. The TV didn't work so they came and fixed it. It worked for a little while and then stopped so we just gave up. We were there to enjoy the beach and island life for a few days. Parking is pretty sparse when the place is full. The staff was very friendly and was sure to greet us coming and going each time. The cleaning people on the other hand were not good. They didn't clean the room until 4pm and then they didn't empty the trash cans. It was pretty much a once over and then out.
