Huge ball of hair in tub. Underground parking not good for large vehicle. Spring break feel. Restaurant service and food awful.

The property is old, out dated, and our room phone didn't work. However, it was clean, in a good location, and the rooms were large.

Everything was wonderful. From checking in and throughout our stay. David at front desk is the best. From anything I ask to always remembering my name. Definitely will return.

This property is so clean, the room was so nice with the ocean view plus the kitchen was a big bonus. We just loved everything about the legacy and be staying there again on our next trip

Good location but property is quite old. Parking lot is terrible. The hotel room is smell bad unless keep the AC 60F or lower. AC is too noisy. Beds are not comfortable, crooked, bugs. Got bit and stung as sleeping in it. Card key not working; don't remember how many time I have to reactivate it. Breakfast is quite boring with muffins, bagels, and cereals oatmeal every day. Recommend to have breakfast at Capt Jack buffet. Housekeeping is terrible even with tips. They missed my room twice in 6 nights even I called and reminded in the morning. Suite room is too small for 6 even 5 people. Spa pool water was harsh, discolored my clothes. Most staff are friendly except a very few. It wasn't cheap btw. It costed me about $200 per night. They charged me over $100 extra fee (?) on top of my travelocity total cost.
