    This was our first time ever staying there, the stay was good and you get what you pay for. We stayed there and it was decent. If I had any issues with anything the bathroom drain was a little slow but nothing worth complaining over. The staff were very polite, caring and professional, they even checked up on a lady that was staying next door to us who was feeling ill. I have never witnessed any staff from any other hotel, motel, etc ever do that. They truly care about trying to make your stay a great one.

    Clean, friendly staff. Loved sitting outside when the neighbors weren't there. A bit outdated. Caught lots of fish tho :D

    Great pool and clean rooms
    The rooms are fancy, but clean and comfortable. The pool was great - definitely the highlight. Location is good, but not walkable to the beach. Close to lots of restaurants. Pet friendly and only $10/night per pet.

    Poor comfort
    The top two things that bothered me was we could not find the damn remote for the air conditioner. I called and called and called the front office and they closed and left for the day at 8pm. After swimming at the beach to come back to our room and it was 68* inside and couldn’t turn it up for my kids. The other thing was since office was closed we wouldn’t get the password for the WiFi either. My kids were bummed about that. Also there are no phones in the room to reach office.
