Not used to lodging on a 1st floor. A little noisy. But overall better than expected.

This is a basic room. Nothing fancy but it is clean and quiet. Also, you should be prepared to pay for parking as it isn't including for free as advertised.

The property was fine for our short stay. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The rooms had very thin walls so you heard cars arriving, unpacking, rolling suitcases, walking in the rooms, talking outside etc. I didn't like finding out about additional parking fees after I had signed and prepaid for the room or the additional fees to check in more than 15 minutes early or late checkout. But our stay was very short so it worked.

The street outside the hotel was under construction but it did not bother us at all. They worked during the daylight hours and the road was accessible during the evening. It was a quick walk to the beach. Awesome area for checking out the surfers and fantastic food options.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious and had all the essentials. Front desk staff was very helpful and stored our luggage before check-in. Short walk to the beach, and the hotel lent us a beach umbrella. My only critique would be that the barn-style door on the bathroom makes it feel less private.

6/10 Okay


Liked: Cleanliness
Overpriced and poor value
Location is decent, the staff was friendly, and it was a king size bed. But this is a very basic place and considerably overpriced for what you get. The ac unit is primitive, the room was stuffy, parking is not free, the coffee in the room was mediocre, and they don’t even bother putting glasses for drinking water in the room.

Lovely convenient retro place. Helpful, cheerful staff. Walk 5-10 min to Windansea beach. Bikes to rent. My room nice inside, but view only of storage lockers in the walkway. Try to get a better view.
