I stayed in a efficiency room here and it was very pleasing. The room had everything I needed for my weekend. The pool area was big enough to enjoy even with family and children around. The beach is just down the road by a few minutes.

Surprisingly good!
IF you want new and modern, keep looking; but if you want older, great condition, clean - then look no further! Cons: it is an RV park with a few motel rooms; very old, crammed up, limited space to park/maneuver, especially with all the monster trucks, tv not great pros: immaculate, in great repair, full size stove/refrigerator, comfortable bed, price was right. We would stay here again, just need a place to sleep; yes, Port Royal is better and about 3 times the money...save money, stay here, eat large!
