4/10 Fair

Not as expected
Checked in late the night we got there after a long drive. One towel in room to be shared between us all. Got up next morning thinking hotel office would open at 9am like posted but she didn’t come in until 10am so we had to share one towel the next morning as well. Sand was all in the floors and bathroom like it hadn’t been swept. Police were at the property several times Saturday night knocking on several rooms and a lot of noise outside our room during this time. Went to check out Sunday morning and couldn’t discuss anything with manager or staff the office was locked and closed again at 10am. Had to drop key in drop box.
