My plans changed & I added an additional night to my reservation. Since I couldn't amend my reservation on Travelocity's website, I just made a second reservation. I didn't anticipate any issues because I had ensured I booked the exact same room type. The morning after my first night, the room cleaner asked if I was checking out. I said, the front desk said I needed to check out, but I was going to inquire about staying in the same room. The cleaner said that shouldn't be an issue because she didn't see anyone scheduled to occupy that room. I thanked her & headed down to the front desk. I politely asked the front desk clerk if I could do the check-in/out but stay in the same room (she was the one that checked me in the day before, so she knew the situation). I also let her know the cleaning lady was kind enough to let me know the room wasn't scheduled for anyone else that day. The front desk clerk acknowledged that the room wasn't scheduled to be occupied, but I would still need to check out, pack my things, wait until check-in time, & move rooms. I asked why & she said it was because I booked through Travelocity and not their website. She asked if I understood. I said, "no; but that's fine." I packed up, checked out, brought my things down & went for a walk. I was called 40 min. later & told I could have the same room. It was pointless by that time since I'd already packed all my things up! VERY DISAPOINTED by The Strand's service & I WILL NOT be staying here again.

Cleaners and breakfast staff were very friendly. The hotel was a bit more rundown than I expected. Closer to a Holiday Inn Express than a “boutique resort.” Despite this, I would have happily considered this hotel/chain for my next trip to the area. Unfortunately, the front desk staff I found this property on Travelocity—and otherwise would not have known about it. I had to book an additional night at the last minute so I had 2 reservations for the two nights rather than 1 reservation for a 2-night stay. Not an uncommon situation. Spoke with the cleaner that was on my floor, and she noted there were no other guests scheduled for my room, so staying in the same one shouldn’t be an issue. “No reason to make you move,” we’re her exact words. The front desk gal apparently didn’t agree. She said that because I booked through Travelocity, I had to pack up, check out, recheck in, and then wait for my new room to be ready. This was after I had politely asked it it would be possible to stay in the same room since the cleaner noted no one else would be checking into they room today. (Note: the room category was the exact SAME for both reservations.) After noting despite having the same room type booked, because I didn’t book directly through the hotel/chain websites. So even though no one would be in that room, I needed to go through the aforementioned check out/in/room change process, she asked if I understood. I smiled and politely replied that I didn’t, but it was ok.

ALL staff members were phenomenal and very friendly. Gym was nice and clean with fairly new equipment. The pool was always clean. Staff were all helpful. My ONLY complaint is that they DID NOT have a contingency plan in place for travelers like myself due to the mandatory evacuation. My family and I (including my 2 year old son) slept in the airport for 2 days. Our trip was cut short and we were left stranded because our flight wasn't for another 2 days. I wouldn't have mind AT ALL being moved to another safe location. But again we got our refund in a timely manner. Just wish they had a contingency plan

Needs renovating. I didn’t know what to expect. Had nothing to compare to. Met our needs- nothing special but nothing bad.

Hotel was fairly clean for the condition of things. The condition of the hotel does not seem to look as good as pictures and videos on your website. There's a lot of wear and tear on pretty much everything including the beds. The mattresses were completely worn out, creaked every time you rolled over and very uncomfortable. Bathroom tiles had several stains, the microwave looked 25 years old. I could go on and on, but the reality is the hotel could use a lot of updates and reconditioning. The breakfast was not great, but just OK like most cheaper hotel breakfast and the coffee was very weak. We never used the bar because no one was ever actually tending it when we checked and it closed so early we were never back from other activities before it closed. The room cost was fair, until you added on the $15 a night "resort fee". Which would be OK, if I actually felt like I was at a resort. One night we woke to a strange noise coming from what appeared to be a speaker on the wall. This went on for at least 1/2 hour. We were told by the cleaning staff it was the intercom system that was no longer in use. We didn't complain about these items to any of the staff, because we assumed it really wouldn't make much difference and there wouldn't be anything they could do about it anyway. It is nice you offer a free shuttle to and from the airport, but again both vans we rode in were very worn out and smelled terrible. All in all the hotel was not the highlight of our trip. The only thing t

On the beach but overall this hotel was dirty & old. Shower is as small as an RV shower. Spider crawled across our bed when we turned down the comforter. Very sketchy entrance to our room too. Wouldn’t recommend this hotel
