Nice location, just a five min walk to beach. Which is awesome since there is limited parking at beach. Room was nice and updated. Staff was nice and welcoming. Only cons was the outside looks really rundown. Stairs have very limited light which made it hard to walk at night. Also there is a rv camp ground next to the hotel. I noticed some would park there extra car at hotel during the night, which made it hard to park. Would be nice if they had someone checking on cars. Other than that i would definitely stay again.

It was a pleasant stay but we've stayed there several times thru the years and it seems that not much improvement has been made. Needs updating as well as nicer landscaping.
