My go to
This is one of my go to hotels. Nothing fancy, but great price and customer service. Room is simple. They do change towels everyday, but not sheets or blankets. They will if you ask.

Great privately owned hotel. Clean and quiet, despite renovations going on from hurricane. Pet friendly. Clean sheets, towels, trash pickup. We will definitely stay here again :) The only thing that was not perfect was the bathroom was not as clean as I would have liked it to be.
