I liked the access to the beach. The beach was cleaned each day by the staff. Did not like that the hotel did not have any umbrellas and chairs for their guests.A outside group wanted to charge $25 a day to use one.

I very sorry to read that you felt the room did not meet your expectation of cleanliness. I was wondering if you were open to discuss your stay with us. If you would be open to this, please contact the hotel directly. They will be able to get you directly connected the Housekeeping Manager because I am unable to share extensions or emails on Expedia. I look forward to speaking with you regarding your recent stay. Thank you for your time.

room was not fit to rent

The furnace area was fithly and had mold. The blinds had mold on them, the base trim was rotted off, the front door when closed could see outside. This room was not fit to be rented to anyone. The Travelocity rep was wonderful. She called the hotel after I tried to get a new room there and finally found other accommodations. She was able to help cancel the rest of our stay but the hotel would not refund the one night we had to stay there.
