Comfortable spot on the Beach!
Right on the beach with a nice big pool, just over a mile to Bailey's Center and restaurants. The room was very basic but perfectly comfortable for the beach.

Great stay
Beautiful view of the gulf, room was great with full cooker and fridge but the light right outside the door stayed on all night, shining through the window. The restaurant was excellent for breakfast and dinner.

Great Stay at West Wind Inn
We had a great time at the West Wind Inn!! We would definitely come back. Loved the pool bar, my only critique would be that the hotel restaurant does not have a nice view or any outdoor seating.
