The door slamming has got to be rhe worst i have ever experienced at a hotel. I understand these things are old facilities but trying to relax during the day after an activity was not an option with the jarring loud banging. Also the breakfast is less than desireable.

We enjoyed our stay here. The property was a bit older but was perfectly clean and everything was in great working order. The 2nd floor hall led right to the beach! I missed having an outdoor hot tub because the weather was pretty cool when we were there. It was in a great location for restaurants and attractions. I will stay there again - next time I'll get an oceanfront room!
