I had to book a hotel for my mother who was on a trip with friends for her birthday b/c the air b & b wasn’t up to par. I called the hotel, they had 1 room left and the person I spoke with was very accommodating and friendly. They help save my mothers bday. She got a wonderful room, had a wonderful time and they even announced her birthday along with others that were staying there on the sign out front. I am forever grateful for them. Thank you so much! I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. I plan to visit myself very soon. I wish I could give you 100 gold stars.

The hotel was newly remodeled and kept clean. The location was ideal, being on the beach and close to the main roads. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The only shortcoming was the pillows were throw sized and you only received one each. Would absolutely stay again.
