Quiet and friendly
I wanted to be in a quiet place, walk the beach, eat at family owned restaurants and get away from the high rises and fast food chain restaurants. This is the place! The hotel was convenient and old Florida style. Reminded me of the places we visited as kids that long gone and have all been replaced with high rise condos.

Facilities were great. However, the pool was not heated as stated in the brochure and there was not a fan in our room as stated in the brochure. A fan was provided at our request.

Nice place.
I enjoyed our stay and would recommend this facility. it is right on the beach which was very nice and we spent a lot of time walking and enjoying the beautiful weather. They provide chairs and have bikes for rent and the place if very well kept. I am aware of the many complaints about the walls being very thin, and yes, you can hear your neighbors, and I guess we were very lucky that we had quiet neighbors, and we were very quiet and respectful to others. If you don't have good neighbors... uh oh! Overall, I would recommend this place to others. The one complaint I have is that we booked a king size bed, and were given two queens. I can tell you it was difficult to sleep 1. Because the mattresses are old and we sank to the middle of the bed and 2. We are not big people, but it's very difficult for us to sleep in a smaller than King bed. When we asked about why we had not been given a king bed, the answer (as usual) "it is based on availability". I don't like that response, considering I have confirmed and paid my reservation and I expect to have the room and selection I chose when I arrive. I will discuss with staff since I have not experienced this before.
