The stunning ocean view from the property is the best around, the staffer so friendly and super efficient. The only downside is it s an old hotel and the pipes can be loud when when the water in the bathroom is used.

A beautifully kept historic resort. Incredible location. Definitely not a cookie cutter motel! I'd come back in a heartbeat. Construction underway for more modern facilities, but, for me it's lovely as is. Of course, we had perfect weather so that helped too!

Love the hotel, service, staff and location. There was a mix up at check-in, however. I booked with Expedia because after 4 tries, could not get reservations to answer. Expedia had my reservation correct, but the hotel had me checking in several days later. It took 3/4 of an hour for them to sort it out, not sure they had a room for me. Worrisome. They did accomodate me in the end. Was never told the origin of the mix-up.
