2.0 Bad
Pros:The water view balcony was nice
Cons:I was here with my in-laws in two rooms. The hotel rooms were filthy. They hadn’t been cleaned and the bedding hadn’t been changed. There was no soap or shampoo in either room. I went to the front desk and other people had the same complaint. He handed them a bar of soap. Then he handed me one bar as well even though I had two rooms. I had to go to the nearby store to buy soap and shampoo. Our rooms were filthy on check-in and the maids don’t come on 4 day trip even if requested. The restaurant wasn’t open for the four day trip either despite all restaurants in Florida being open. The employees either didn’t wear masks or wore them very inconsistently.
