Fantastic place to stay! Was our first time staying here, and they exceeded our expectations. Most affordable hotel (regarding comparable chains and 3 stars nearby) in the area, yet cleaner and nicer amenities than many. Nice pool area, parking is included, a cute play area for kids, and very clean bathrooms and shower right off the beach for guests. The property just overall is taken care of very well! The room was great, spacious and nice bathroom! Very clean and great balcony view. Only thing we disliked was the shower head is very low and could be in a better position. We will be staying again!

They had actually moved me from the original room I had called and requested which I was not happy about but in the end it ended up being just fine! Even from the second floor of the beach/ocean building the ease to get to the beach was so worth it!! It was very clean upon arrival. They do not clean your rooms during your stay I guess unless you ask so the sand on the floor caused me to have to sweep some, but they probably would've done it if I had requested. location is amazing!! Free breakfast was nothing to write home about, but it was good enough that we didn't eat out for breakfast and made due. we will stay again.

I really appreciated how clean the hallways smelled every time I walked in. TV streaming was not always good, but it eventually would come through.

Room they gave me was right on the beach. It was perfect for walking the dog in the beach. Had a perfect view every morning of the sunrise.

Proximity to the beach was awesome. Mostly quiet except Saturday night. Staff really kept property clean and were polite. Only disappointment was the breakfast. Besides waffles there was no other hot options. But a great place for biscuit sandwiches was in walking distance.
