My wife & I were meeting friends from Hong Kong for a casual weekend. We requested a King Suite however only a Queen was available. Room was on 5th floor overlooking the beach. The view was relaxing even though we looked across the parking lot & Hwy 90 which is quite congested at different times of the day.
Hotel lobby and Bistro Areas were very well situated with very nice decor. The only apparent drawback to this facility was they offered no complementary breakfast which could be a deterrent to family’s with children. The Bistro offered food which was well prepared but a little on the pricey side. However, Starbucks coffee was available.

Not the typical Courtyard stay. Had to wait for over two hours for my room. Booked online. King top floor. Got second floor. Old tired room. Carpet was dirty. Bathroom dirty.
Hallway was in constant State of chaos. With carts and electrical work being done. Maybe an option would be to close for a remodel.
Hotel staff were professional and courteous. Saving grace!
