Only good thing about this hotel was it’s location so close to the beach. The room floors were filthy and so was the bathtub and toilets. Asked housecleaning to focus on those when asked and all they did was sweep. Went to target and got my own cleaning supplies because I was tired of seeing my toddlers feet get black from walking barefoot in the room. Bedding smelled weird and had someone else’s hair all over it. Drains were super slow so all the gunk we washed off our feet would linger in the tub making it gross again. Sofa was dirty and worn out. Indoor pool area pillows were super dirty and warm. Hotel in general needs sprucing up!

Many Pesky black birds annoy everyone by the pool area and our room deck! Our room needed major updating! We love the location!
