Great stay! A bit noisy.
The hotel was simple— comfortable bed, nice beach view, EXCEPTIONAL reception— they were quick and helpful with every request. Downside is that the walls/ceilings are thin so falling asleep at night was difficult. Simple, but served the purpose of a place to stay. Would recommend it.

an attempt to make a motel look nice
My title Is how I feel about this place. I felt like it was overpriced. TV had terrible sound...AC stopped working twice and when I called they had to send someone to dump water out of the circuit. ! was there 2nts. The carpet/walls/etc were clearly an old rundown motel previously. Won't stay again but the location is spot on.

The hotel is older but you can tell ownership is working to update it. If you’re lookong for somewhere to stay that’s directly on the beach, this is it. Just make sure you get the room you’re paying for.
