The check-in process was quick and easy, handled by a very friendly staff member (Suzy). The room was very nice and very clean. Our only disappointment is that we weren't on the end of the building facing the beach. I thought I had rented one of those rooms but apparently I didn't and didn't think to ask about it until we got into our room and we decided the room we were given was okay for us. Loved that we had beach access. And we liked the fact that our room was cleaned every day. The Desoto Beach Hotel was a great experience.
