We arrived after driving for 7 hours, so happy to reach our destination safely for the night!! We walked into a cool, sparkling clean lobby and were welcomed by a friendly staff! While Courtyards are predictable (thank goodness) this did not disappoint! The Bistro was clean and lovely! Sarah was warm and welcoming and very geared to please us Food was great and service was greater!!

Sherry Shepherd

Pamela at the front desk was amazing! We stopped through while traveling to Disney around 1am as we were too tired to continue our trek She was more than accommodating, professional and courteous They were down to the last few rooms; she went above and beyond to make sure we were able to get a place to lay our heads for the night, I am forget grateful

The rooms were comfy and clean I’ll be sure to stop through again just to see Pamela! Recommend recommend recommend!

Within a 5 minutes drive from the airport you will find the Courtyard by Marriott This seems to be an older property from the exterior, but they do a great job with building maintenance and an even better job with the interior renovations bringing in vibrant pops of colors against the dark wood decorThe rooms are very clean and comfortable

Staff is friendly My only concern is the speed of service in the bistro Thankfully it was not very busy on the morning of my visit when I waited 15 minutes to place an order with only two people ahead of me Seem to be one person working He was very friendly and professional

My first impression wasn’t that good The units appeared to be outdated However, once I moved in I had a change of heart

Rooms were clean and provided the home away from home feel that I needed During my stay I noticed that they were working hard to upgrade many of the units and amenities I was surprised at how large the units were The staff was always friendly and polite, they went out of their way to accommodate you Anytime I have to travel to Kingsland, Ga Mariners Suites has my reservations It’s like a small community within a community Keep up the great work!

Rebekah Harris

Very comfortable and clean! Lots of places to sit, a lot of room and perfect for a family Included 2 Queen beds (more on the firmer side), pull out queen sofa, desk, coffee table, TV, lots of outlets for charging electronics, lots of lighting/lamp options, soft & fluffy pillows, microwave, dishes, dish soap, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, garbage disposal, plenty of wastebaskets, recycling bins, plenty of shelving, a closet and a curtain to separate the beds from the other half of the room Offered breakfast, but we left too early for a flight to be able to partake in that so I’m not sure what was available

There was 24/7 decaf, gourmet and hot H20 in the lobby with a variety of creams, sweeteners, teas to make, hot chocolate packets and to go cups/regular mugs available Staff was great too!

Once Upon a Cruise

Dirty, smelly and disgusting! We stayed for one night on Christmas Eve, 2021 on our way down to Tampa It was one of the few places that would allow our dog We are Hilton Honors members and have never had an issue with any Hilton property

The room we got was very spacious and had decent amenities However, it was NOT CLEANED FROM THE PREVIOUS OCCUPANTS There were TOENAIL CLIPPINGS on the floor, clothing receipts and change sitting on the bedside table HAIR IN THE SHOWER and SINK Food crumbs in the kitchen and also on the TV table The toilet had fecal stains in it and the toilet seat had what appeared to be either blood or fecal stains I nearly threw up because I stepped in something sticky on the bathroom floor! Totally unacceptable We called down to the front desk and they switched us to another room It was barely better but we were exhausted and needed to sleep at least a little to get to our new house in Tampa on Christmas day The front desk person was very nice and apologetic She advised that all managers were off due to the holiday Bad management leads to bad behavior We were told that we would be contacted by someone within the next few days That never happened See? Bad management This place is supposed to be new and it was so nasty It smelled like hot garbage in the hallway of the first room we were given That should have been a sign We should have stayed in our car It was cleaner and less smelly

Elizabeth Fantin

GO ELSEWHERE! AVOID THIS HOTEL!! We left the hotel after being assigned to room that smelled, overlooked (right outside the window) a pool desk where a mess of adult locals were playing in baby pools filled with ice when there was a perfectly good swimming pool, and all over “used look” to the place Signs at the front desk were worn They did not have to water and snack bags they are supposed to have for Honors Club members saying it was the pandemic; last nights Hampton had them

The GM said the only other room he could swap us to had no a/c, (this is 96 degree FL summer weather) and he had just spoke to another guest on the phone saying he had no maintenance person on staff We were early check-ins and he could have found us an upgrade or another room When I pointed out Hilton’s satisfaction guarantee he reply was clear that he was quite used to receiving and rebuffing complaints against his poorly managed location If we had stayed we would have had revelers outside our window until 10 or later Hilton Honors rebooked us at another property Until there is a top down change from the owners and a renovation of a worn out hotel, drive by this one Its the worst HOME 2 we have ever visited

I reserved a room at this location for my 85 year old Dad who needed a get away for a couple of weeks He stayed at this site for 16 days and thoroughly enjoyed himself He said the staff was amazing; very helpful, courteous and professional! They gave him a sense of being home and by the end of the 2 weeks he was referring to them as his friends on our daily calls

He also reported the location was very clean and decorated nicely This spot is a perfect location away from all of the hustle and bustle and was within walking distance for him from the beach and Sliders which were his additional favorite spots Thank you for taking care of my Dad! 🙂

Marie Corsale

Ask for Randy and he will make sure your experience is amazing Everyone was so helpful and friendly honestly We always enjoy our stay here and feel alot safer than most hotels

Our suite is always clean and always available on time Breakfast is good and pool is always clean! 👌 We didn’t get to grill out but maybe next time 🤔 Thank you for making this birthday stay wonderful

Kevin Crawford

Love this hotel but it needs better beds They only have queens, which is fine, but the beds aren’t the most comfortable and the linens don’t fit well The room layout is excellent, though, giving you lots of space and the couch in the single bed room pulls out to be another bed if you have kids with you

The location is awesome, super convenient to the beach and there’s a great little ice cream shop right next door that makes dole whips that taste exactly like the ones in Disney Highly recommended despite finding the beds a bit uncomfortable

WOW Okay so first I want to say, this is the very first trip my wife and I have made together We chose Amelia Island to be our honeymoon destination and it was a GREAT choice

Sea Cottages of Amelia was great in so many ways From the ease of access to check in, to the kind people you encounteredWhen we arrived, there were carts for us to place our luggage in and roll to our room The parking lot had great space for us and it was not overcrowded or overwhelming When we entered the room, it was PERFECT We had a studio and it was equipped with everything we needed for the week The kitchen area was spacious, the couch was perfect, the air conditioning was AMAZING, the shower and bathroom had space and was very cleanWe were so impressed by the cottages and how close we were to the beach It was about a 5 minute walk down and we were right next to great places to eat If you want to drive, you’ll be looking at a 10 minute drive to downtown area but that is NOT BAD Parking was perfect the whole way aroundAll in all, we loved our stay and will be staying again Communication between us and the management before hand made the experience smooth, they even put flowers in our room so I could surprise my wife! It was something else!! STAY HERE!!


We had a fantastic stay at the Sea Cottages of Amelia Island! I truly felt like they thought of everything you’d need in your cottage giving you the comforts of home The decor and Sea Cottage itself was inviting and well thought out We loved the location on Sadler and convenience to the beach/downtown

We enjoyed talking with the staff in the lobby area Betsy and Glen gave us great activity ideas and wonderful restaurant recommendations Overall it was a great experience and we look forward to coming back soon!

Regina Carmon

This was a great find Close to the beach but quiet and not crowded They are dog friendly and so is the beach

We made reservations earlier in the day and got to the hotel at 1:30 am The lady at the front desk was very kind and happy to great us, she got us checked in and paid our pet deposit ($20 non refundable) We got the last room of the night

The rooms are nice without going over the top if you will! The bed and pillows were very comfortable in me and my husband’s opinion The water was hot and rooms were clean I have no complaints!!

Jeff Wilson

I spent one night here on a motorcycle tripThe room I was in was a king with a sofa, and it was very nice Very clean

Oddly enough the towels were a little ratty but they were just fineHot breakfast in the morning, with plenty of seatingThe service, both in the evening and in the morning, was excellentThey have a small sundries convenience shop, and ice creamThe hotel is in walking distance of food so you don’t need to drive for dinnerI would definitely stay here again

Amanda Clampitt

I had a nice stay The room was clean, the woman at the front desk was friendly My complaint is that my credit card was charged 3 times

I was told the charges would fall off once I checked out They did not I spent 45 minutes on the phone (being placed on hold) while the manager on duty contacted the credit card company and at times had to check people in (understandable) to be provided a reference number and no refund I stayed here on 6/30 It’s now 7/5 and I still have yet to see the charges come off of my account That’s $160 of my money that’s tied up waiting My bank told me to contact the hotel, the hotel says I need to wait for the bank The charges are still pending and I am wildly frustrated I understand it’s a holiday weekend, but only one of the days in the last 5 was an actual holiday At the end of the day, this is a mistake the hotel made My card should have never been charged 3 times and I feel they haven’t done anything to make their mistake right They could have given me Wyndham points or discounted my stay for the inconvenience Just disappointed and still waiting for my money

Saint Mary’s, Georgia, where I and my now deceased parent’s once lived, in the early- late 1950’s, is not a friendly town!! The Manager of this hotel was very rude to me yesterday morning, when, through NO Fault of my own, I , in essence, pleaded with her, to reduce the price of another “stay-period”, since I was nearing the end of my current stay at this hotelInstead of “heart”, or , if I could possibly use the word, “Compassion”; I got a very stern, steely-eyed” Look “, and a very uncalled for, rude comment After this General Manager’s rude, ” in your face ” comment, I immediately left the front desk, and returned to my hotel room

I found a better hotel deal online, locally, and a much nicer Manager( from recent past experience )Also, at this hotel, the very first Tub- Shower I took; I found the water in the bathtub was NOT draining out of the tub!! So, my first shower, saw the tub filling with water and soap, etc, as I showered! Also, the toilet was defective, by my 3rd day, and I had to call for maintenance to fix something in the toilet tank! Maintenance was good, though, for both the draining problem, with the Tub, and the Toilet He is Hispanic, and was Much more pleasant than his boss( The Hotel Manager ) As far as Housekeeping went; I didn’t have a visit from them, until I was at this hotel 4 day’s! So, unless you are desperate for a room, I would not advise anyone booking this hotel, after my experience, here

We were charged an outrageous $176+ for a king room that was located in the same hallway as construction There was so much dust in the air I spent much of the evening sneezing, coughing and blowing my nose The closet had a thick coat of dust as if it hadn’t been dusted in ages

The bathroom had mold around the sink drain, in the shower head, corners around the tub The AC unit was so loud it woke me virtually every time it turned on If we weren’t so tired from being on the road all day we would have left Holiday Inn should be ashamed they put us in such a dirty room The irony There was a card on the dresser proclaiming how everything was cleaned spotless and sanitary

Andrew Molinari

Early in the morning There were alot of slammed doors and loud voices Usually at Holiday Inns I have a great experience but there didn’t seem to be any sound depending or soft close door features preventing this

Even worse in the morning someone opened our door Thankfully the emergency lock on the door worked and kept them out I jumped up and looked in the hall way but I didn’t see anyone It isn’t clear if someone has a key and was trying to break in or if it was housekeeping just not knocking I called the front desk and they told me it was probably house keeping But even if it was house keeping they should just try to open the door without knocking and announcing themselves

Everything about our stay was perfect! Every single one of the staff was amazing but Robyn, Cat, Dennis and Jen went above and beyond to make us feel at home! Robyn and Cat helped us at the front desk, Dennis gave us shuttle rides and local input, and Jen helped us as a manager with shuttle and room details My husband and I came to celebrate our toddlers birthday and were so impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the pool, lobby, breakfast etc The one bedroom suite was well stocked and very spacious! We used the shuttle to go to the downtown area and the beach and it was on time and easily available especially with a full hotel on a holiday weekend! Cannot say enough about the quality of hotel and kindness of the staff!

Buster Ecks

Phenomenal Stay! My check-in experience was great I believe the woman’s name was Robin She gave me some great ideas of places to grab food while in the area

She also gave me a heads up that many of the locations close early, which saved me from having an unwanted fast food dinner!The hotel room was great Open layout, but made is such a way where the bed isn’t in sight upon walking into the front door — this is something I don’t like thay many hotels do There was a full kitchen with stove, microwave, coffee maker, as well as pots, pans, and various cooking utensilsThe amenities were great as well! A gym (though a bit small), putting green, BBQ Grills, pool and hot poop, fire pit, and lots of places to sit and enjoy the air The location is also quite quiet Parking is free, and there’s a shuttle that will take and pick you up anywhere on the island Though know that they only have 1 shuttle, so your wait time may be a bit long, so plan accordinglyIn short, great stay, great room, and great staff!

Barry Hasson

Had a great one week stay here Very clean hotel with friendly helpful staff We were in a corner room on the fifth floor so it was very quiet

Bed was comfy and room was spacious One of our TVs could not connect to the internet, so we just watched on the bedroom TV The breakfast was incredible! New items added every day we were there Waffles, pastries, bagels, muffins, omelettes, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, Canadian bacon, sausage, cereal, oatmeal and much much more Sue, one of the wait staff was just great! Pool area was well kept and there were gas grills on the patio for guest use This hotel is an easy walk to the beach (two blocks) and is a short drive to everything There is also a very nice greenway trail that runs for a few miles behind the hotel Thepics are from the trailThe price for a stay is very reasonable We’ll be back!

Traveling with two elderly, small dogs and needed accommodation for one night where potty breaks for them were not a logistical nightmare Nailed it here Ground floor room had vinyl flooring that was somewhat textured so they weren’t sliding around on the floor

Enough space to put their dog beds down Potty area was a few doors down a hallway and straight out onto a level grass area Rubbish bin located sensibly Best pet friendly accommodation so far Room was clean and all amenities functional Other pet owning guests were polite and considerate Will stay here again 😃

We had a great 4-night stay at the end of April The property is beautiful, with lush greens and lovely walking paths to shops and restaurants—easy access to all the restaurants We loved the pool area and never had trouble finding a chair

The kiddie pool was perfect for our families The food/ beverage service at the pool was good – thank you to Charlie for taking care of us The room was lovely – an incredible view of the beach and pool The staff was friendly, with lots of smiles and always greeting Restaurants on the property are average and pricey

William Ledbetter

We had a great time From the time you drive up all staff are friendly, quick and professional The resort is beautiful and the grounds maintained impeccably

The food was much better than average resort food, in fact it was excellent to my surprise Everything was clean, the maid-service was excellent The bar drinks were good Plenty of chaise-lounges for all of the guests by the pool Beach was well maintained The Live Oaks all over the property were spectacular and the property is huge I will come back again probably next year

Alison O’Carroll

Highly recommend this resort to anyone Room was really nice with comfortable beds and pillows, great TV, refrigerator and in-room coffee maker, good shower and a deck with a most wonderful view of the ocean Staff was very friendly and service was great

Great live music in the indoor bar area and in the poolside bar/restaurant Beautiful, extensive grounds with lots to do in addition to swimming in the pools and ocean The nights in this area of Florida were so pleasant and the hotel was a great place to be outside enjoying the weather!

We had stayed at Seaside Amelia Inn with our two grandchildren for six nights The customer service was very good and everybody was very friendly We got a suite and the kids had slept on the pullout sofa and the pullout bed

Everybody was comfortable The rooms are not very big but very clean and recently renovated The air conditioning units are very quiet and they cool our rooms very well The breakfast was fresh and good Grady a very nice person was around and making sure nothing is missing at breakfast Children loved going to the the swimming pool after the coming from the beach

Dawn Reyna

We booked a room late afternoon on a whim It was the last room they had available so I was skeptical We were very pleased with our room

We could see the ocean and the pool (rather small, but clean) and it was tiny They called it a “studio” BUT the room was newly renovated, had a TV, chair, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a queen / full sized bed The bathroom was newly renovated as well, and had a tiled, step-in shower We only needed the room for the S’s *CENSORED*, shower, shave and sleep so it was perfect for us The bed was really comfy Slept like a rock There was also a cool rooftop patio with great viewsThe free breakfast was good and the lady who handled that (Grady??) was the sweetest, most pleasant person I met that entire trip!As of this posting, the hotel is in the middle of a remodeling project but this didn’t affect us much You cannot beat the location, which is at Main Beach and less than 50 yards away from a playground and 100 yards or so away from a skateboard park if you have the need or desire for these things It’s also less than 1/4 of a mile from the entrance to Fort Clinch If you can get a room, take it

This was by far one of the BEST stays my family and I have had! Jean at the front desk was absolutely amazing! That is also speaking for her entire staff, the customer service was the very best! I HIGHLY recommend staying here for anyone, location is great, rooms were clean, and great breakfast Thanks again to Jean and her staff, y’all were amazing! 👍🏼

Definitely will become my Number One go-to hotel when I am in the area Lucinda, the front desk associate, was very helpful, kind and patient from the initial booking interaction Over the phone, I knew I’d selected the perfect ‘get away’ stay, because of her promptness and welcoming personality

She even assured me that she’d be here upon arrival on check in date which made me feel even more comfortable In fact, when I arrived, she instantly remembered my voice and greeted me by name Reggie, the Manager on duty, was also very personable, and took the initiative to stand and greet me formally The room seemed to be clean as I completed a walk through inspection! Customer Service is ALWAYS a winner for me!!

The staff was nice( upon checking in the lady held a nice short conversation to welcome us and upon checking out we were thanked for coming and wished safe travels back home😊), breakfast was good( even though I wish they had offered turkey meat because we don’t eat pork), the only issue we had was with our room We found some hair on one of the beds and in the bathroom sink, and a blood like stain on the mattress when we took the covers off before we left

The rooms were very clean and the staff was helpful and fairly friendly I appreciated the breakfast bar and gym I stayed in two different rooms – the first was great, the second had a deadbolt that wouldn’t work, and when I picked up the hotel phone to report it, it didn’t work either

They moved me to a new room There was bad weather so I tried scrolling through the channels to find the weather channel, though the remote was in rough shape and the buttons hardly worked – took me a long time to get to the right channel It just made me feel like the place was a bit old and neglected in some ways I’d definitely stay there again, as it was far more positive than not

Right now the facility is in the process of an update/renovation so there is a mix of old and new The room was newly done but still from a decor perspective felt a bit dated probably from the furniture and bath counter It was clean

We did not find the bedding particularly comfortable (mattress and pillows) For the one night we stayed we could not get the room cooled to recommended sleep temperature (until after 6 am) and I thought the sound proofing between hall noise and other random guest noises less than usual Basically not a good night sleep Breakfast appeared slightly above average– I didn’t sample Staffing appeared pleasant and eager to help We did not discuss any of the above issues since we were only there one night In summary: Pros–clean friendly and convenient but not particularly cool crisp or quiet

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at My family and I reserved a block of 8 plus rooms, over a month in advance The sheets were filthy with apparent stains and hair as if they were not changed

We requested new sheets from the front desk within five minutes of checking in to the room We waited several hours and was then informed by the front desk that housekeeping changed our bedding We did not leave the room and nobody made an attempt to enter the room and change the sheets After discussing the matter with the front desk a second time, we were given sheets to change the bedding ourselves The sheets we were provided also had stains that resembled bodily fluids The rooms were also bug infested for which the front desk seemed to be aware of as they provided us with bug spray to spray down our rooms The toilets were filthy making it evident that they were not cleaned regularly My family and I intended to stay for 3 nights but changed our hotels after one night due to the filthiness of the hotel and the lack of care from staff


This hotel seemed clean and comfortable until 3 am when my husband woke up to bed bugs in his pillow After driving 9 hours we didn’t have the energy to go complain so decided to tough it out until morning When we went to take showers we noticed that there was a used washcloth and bar of soap inside the shower

In the morning we stepped out of our room to find a cockroach crawling outside our door Breakfast area was cramped and chaotic, and no Covid mitigation measures were in place When we complained about our experience with the bed bugs to the person at the front desk, they sighed nonchalantly and said that they “usually give a discount when this happens” but they didn’t have the authority to do it and their manager didn’t usually arrive until noon The manager did call us later and said that when inspecting the room they found “a type of bug” and would have an exterminator come as well as give us a full refund, including pet fee for our dog Glad they made it right but we will definitely not be staying here again

I have been coming here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t be disappointedMy stay at the Ritz Carlton was excellent, literally faultless, from beginning to end Everyone took care of us, and the room was comfy and clean And don’t forget about the view! There are no words to describe how breathtaking the view is Stay here and hang out throughout your vacation since there is plenty of food, drink, and beach vibes

We stayed here recently and it was absolutely the finest resort we have ever been to! The resort and the grounds are exquisite! The staff was amazing! The kids had a blast as well There were tons of great activities the staff put together including, a shark teeth find and smores by a campfire We can’t wait to get back for another visit again soon

To all the staff and management at Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, thank you for making one of our most memorable family vacations ever!!!

I can’t give enough stars This hotel is so beautiful and the service is beyond compare Alison, our poolside waitress was fantastic, especially dealing with my 6 & 4yr old niece and nephew

Joe was an awesome poolside attendant, sunglasses cleaner and snake wrangler! On the club level, Joni and Kathy went above the call of duty providing me special dietary food options and just being all around fabulous people They are some of the warmest, kindest people I’ve met The other staff did an amazing job as well keeping everything spotless and well stocked Jojo provided me a much needed, thorough massage and the Spa facilities were luxurious and also spotless It was extra special having a separate, salt water pool to enjoy The shower pressure in the Spa and guest rooms was awesome and all the food we had was so delicious and thoughtfully prepared The kids loved the game room Ok so did we adults! This is a family friendly resort with lots of activities for everyone with excellent attention to detail I had a game changing tennis lesson with John and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for tips to improve He is amazing! I highly recommend this hotel, it lived up to the Ritz reputation for quality

Well I am handicapped and there were three people in our party They changed our room from two queens/doubles to a king with a pull out bed The beds were less than comfortable

My son who is 11 that stayed with us had to use the pull out couch and he said it was very uncomfortable They were only towels for two so we had to go back to get new ones for the third person in the party that we had booked for Then we had to go back for a pillow As there were not three of those either Now I asked the lady if they were going to have boiled eggs for breakfast She said no due to the pandemic they would not They had oranges and apples How can you have eggs that you peel not be there but apples that you don’t peel be there in The dining room? There was no meat cereal or you could make your own waffle and a few things of bread and cereal There was Apple and orange juice and coffee There were signs up that said do not take the food back to your room Very disappointing Now next comes critiquing the room She said this was during the pandemic so I would’ve expected the room to be spotless Another great disappointment I am not sure when they dusted last but I think it was probably when they built the place One of the remote controls didn’t work the handicap bars in the bathroom were filthy Video attached Now when you are handicapped you like to have the handicapped shower so that it is lower Again another broken item that had so much dust on it that I know it had been broken for a while (See picture) In the center they have a kitchen area I am not sure when the last time they clean the wall but I could’ve probably had a full meal on the food that was there (See picture) The light on my wife side of the bed didn’t work The cups in the cabinet weren’t clean so we had to wash them also before we use them When I arrived and I asked if they could bring extra linens to the room as I have listed above they told me they had no housekeeping We arrived about five or 5:30 PM The reason that they had moved me to a different room is because they said that some government workers had extended their stay And so if somebody decides to extend their stay the new party has to suffer?

Stayed here for my daughters birthday last night and asked for late checkout while I was checking in as we didn’t get in until late and desk attendant said that would be fine, checkout would be at 12:00 instead of 11:00 As we are packing our things to leave room attendants pounded on the door at 11:03 saying we were supposed to be out I notified them that the previous night we had late checkout for 12:00 approved

5 minutes goes by and a different front desk attendant starts calling the room rudely yelling that I needed to get out that they have government personnel on the way that rented the room and I cannot stay This was after room switches due to half of the suite not getting power, dirty hot tub and pool, bathroom issues that needed addressing, etc Customer service by the day crew has been absolutely subpar at best Will also be contacting booking agency as this has been a complete joke

Kris DiFatta

The first room was very hot, with a strange smell There was no bathtub, only a shower that leaked, and there was a wedding reception loudly thumping music below the roomThe front desk was very kind and moved us to another room

The second room was much cooler and quieter, with a bathtub The beds were softThe pool was closed for treatment so we were unable to use it Breakfast was simple, but sufficient There were no extra pillows for the pull out bed, and the front desk said they didn’t have any to provide There were also strange notes taped up all over the hotel with instructions of things not to do (ie don’t leave trash bags outside your door for house keeping, breakfast is only to be eaten downstairs, not in your room, etc)Overall, it wasn’t a terrible stay, but the price is a little steep for a basic hotel in need of an update

The rooms in the tower are

Okay If you don’t mind a small bathroom If your room number starts with a seven or higher Good luck You are in the 1970s Holiday inn out back You will definitely get your steps in getting out to your room from the lobby Front desk service is above average Restaurant service, food, prices, drinks, wait times are well below the norm Do not eat here You will starve before your food arrives and you will end up paying two to three times the value of what you get Drinks are not priced appropriately for a second rate Hotel bar, at the airport Overall, the hotel needs a serious refresh Attention should also be paid to maintenance The elevators are not in great shape There is also a massive plumbing leak in the lobby

Antoine Pruitt

Overall great hotel The staff I encountered was very nice and pleasant From the front desk clerk to the house keeping lady

Check-in was very smooth and easy Room was nice and clean, every day Bathroom is very small but no big deal The air didn’t seem to be working very well It wasn’t hot but it wasn’t the coldest Over all a good place to stay I’d return if I’m ever in the area again

Jennifer Fredericks

We arrived at the hotel warm multiple people were checking in on a Friday night They had one very nice lady at the desk trying to manage the entire front desk check in along with phones Management needs to staff appropriately and not have one person

I felt bad for the front desk lady She was professional efficient and polite I expect much better from Hilton Shame on management

I love this place The customer service was not so great the first day I checked in The lady was snobby and act like she didn’t want to work with me

She didn’t even ask me if I wanted any complimentary water, but ask the young man before me It didn’t matter, I had my own water But you and i both know customer service compliments the company The next day the front desk service was great The lady was so nice

Christina Swayne

Absolutely awful experience We purposely booked this hotel because they had an airport shuttle and we CALLED prior to making sure of it The day before we have a flight out they let us know the shuttle is no longer 24 hours so our family would have to find other options since we had an early flight

Mind you, our whole intent to stay there with the shuttle was because we have young children and a shuttle is much more convenient than lugging car seats Really disappointed Also on a side note, my husband had NUMEROUS bites on his arms and legs the next day which we believe may have been bed bugs Do not recommend at all

Ryan Rivkin

The service was great and the food was what you expect out of a hotel and no bad comments there however the room that we had felt damp when I first walked in and I took my shoes off it felt almost like they had gone through a carpet cleaning but that didn’t change throughout our stay I don’t know if the AC units aren’t able to keep up with the humidity but other than that the bed was super comfortable I had a great night sleep and we love the fact that this location has an electric vehicle charger because we drive up from Sarasota with our electric vehicle
