    I booked the ocean view double room/efficiency and loved looking out my window at the ocean. The property isn't directly on the ocean, but right across from Jeanette's Pier. I loved keeping my window open and falling asleep listening to the ocean. It's close to everything, too. It's an older property, with no pool or other amenities, and I think the price reflects that. The room was comfortable, though the bathroom/shower was very small. My biggest issue was the lack of soundproofing between my room and the one above me, sometimes it sounded like a herd of elephants upstairs. I'm going to try one of the cottages when I return. Huge bonus that it's pet friendly, though you'll want to walk your dog across the street and find some grass without the ever-present sand spurs (my dog picked up a couple in the kinda grassy area behind the hotel). Overall, a great value compared to other properties and I intend to return for Spring Break.
