I booked this hotel for 5 nights. I was making the trip to see my oldest son graduate from Navy boot camp which is located 15 mins away. I read all of the negative reviews, but still felt the positives would outweigh the negatives as I would have my 12 year old son along and wanted something fun for him to do during our stay. First of all the hotel rooms, lobby, restaurants, and water park are all spotless. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lifeguards were very professional and all took their jobs very seriously. The only bad thing I have to say would have to be the prices were exceptionally high. I expected a bit of inflation as this is a tourist destination, but I felt this was a little over priced. I would also like to see microwaves in the guest rooms. Otherwise, it was a great stay with any restaurant you could want within 5 mins. I will recommend this to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Like all Extended Stays, they provide a kitchen and larger than average hotel room for a lower than most hotel room rates. This one is in the middle of remodeling and that may take care of the room overheating and shower not maintaining heat issues we had. Other than that, it's fine.
My 18 year old daughter and I stayed for the weekend to attend a nearby event. The hotel was very clean, staff was friendly. Our double queen room was more spacious than most others. The beds were very comfy so we both slept well. The only disappointment was that there was a pool but no hot tub. Unfortunately for us it was the hot tub we were in need of. We would definitely stay there again.
