Not bad just small
It wasn’t a bad place, it was a great location. But our tv didn’t work didn’t have a microwave, and out shower was so small you can even turn around and shave your legs

Our favorite
We love the Dolphin and have returned annually since we discovered it. Laid back, dog friendly, and nestled in the dunes right on the beach.

Good for the money.
Remodeled motel. New bathroom fixtures. Window air conditioner. New tile floor. Right on the beach but could not see water from rooms. Adequate but not fancy. No problems.
