    4/5 Good

    You cannot get any closer to the beach. Great beach access. Older property that could use some updating but worth the price.

    It was a nice quiet place that had a lot of positives. Could use some updating but it was clean and had a great location.

    We were extremely disappointed in this hotel. It was fairly expensive, especially since it was off season. Yet, the shower was broken, the bed dipped toward the middle, and had no insulation against the newly arrived red tide event. The hotel included breakfast but it was fair lame. A couple of boxes of cereal, cereal bars, etc. reminiscent of what is offered at a discount motel—but at premium prices. Never again!

    The best thing about this property was - it was next to the beach. So you don't have to go to "public access" beaches and pay $5/hour parking. We booked this hotel because it was right on the beach and had breakfast available. But it is the "breakfast in a basket". So that was a disappointment. Stay was alright and any complaints were responded to, pretty fast. We had 2 queen beds. One of the bed was kind of broken and if you sleep on it you end up in the middle. The mattress was so saggy. But the kids felt it was some fun and used that bed. Besides that the hotel had free bikes and kayaks to rent. They had no restrictions on beach towel changes, since we went off season. It was a good stay overall, with only slight disappointment about one bad mattress bed and the "breakfast in a basket".
