6.0 Okay
Pros:The beds are very comfy
Cons:NEEDS A POOL CHILLER
A
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:The pool was open until midnight.
Cons:The water in the pool was 90 degrees. The blinds were warped and you could see everything in our room from the parking lot. We had to use sheets to cove the blinds.
A
3.4 Poor
Pros:Cost and location
Cons:My wife and I stayed here for one night. We chose it for the cost and location. When we arrived we were unpleasantly surprised- there was that old motel smell, and overall, it was underwhelming and disappointing. The worst part was the next morning when I stepped in a puddle of water in the hotel room. We searched for the source, and after my wife heard a trickling sound coming from the floor, she saw that the water was seeping from under the tiling. We had to use all the towels to absorb the water as we got ready to go.
K
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great hottub and pool area with 2 restaurants on the premises, the Reef historic tiki bar and greek place. Laid back nostalgic vibe. Rooms nice enough and large...a bit outdated but more than functional.
Cons:Bed could have been more comfortable...a little too soft. Excellent cleaning staff...very clean and well maintained property.

Pros:Grassy area for dogs warm pool Bedding was nice on-site restaurant was convenient DVR was a great plus
Cons:Shower was too high, and couldn't get the water hot enough Carpet needed cleaning had to keep dogs on leash- rather have it fenced Can't enjoy the pool- no place to leave the dogs- maybe a couple kennels for a quick dip? With a treat my dogs would be happy for a bit.
