                        • 7.4

                          On the beach and staff was very friendly

                          Thought pools were supposed to be heated but we're cold Feel it's too high priced for the quality

                        • 7.4

                          Set up of room...beds by porch so you could hear ocean

                          Price

                        • 10.0

                          Very comfortable

                          Keys kept unprograming. Had to make SEVERAL trips back down to front desk to get key reprogrammed. Very frustrating

                        • 10.0

                          The bed was wonderful. Mattress was so comfortable and sheets clean and fresh. Pillows were awesome.

                          There wasn't anything we didn't like. Service was great,housekeeping was great and the location was the best. We loved it.

                        • 10.0

                          The ocean front view was perfect. Great location and most of all the beds and pillows were awesome.

                          The only thing I didn't like was we couldn't smoke on the balcony even if we kept it clean.

                        • 10.0

                          We had great stay. Being seniors we lust wanted to sit on balcony and enjoy the Gulf View.

                        • 9.6

                          Easy beach access, large room.

                        • 3.2

                          The eggs were edible. The beds were comfortable. That's it.

                          The carpets were very old & dirty. For the price of the room it was very small. We had to buy senior breakfasts because the coffee cost $2.70 per cup!!! Will not recommend this place!

                        • 9.2

                          The location. Right on the beach!

                          The prices. The room was approximately 50.00 more than one year ago.

                        • 7.4

                          The location on the beach

                          They do not allow smoking on the balcony

                        • 9.2

                          Location on Gulf.

                          Stairs or ramp for moving luggage. Also no Street level entrance into Pancake House-only stairs or ramp. Very difficult for seniors with limited mobility.
