Afternoon check in staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. Breakfast bar was disappointing and when I asked the AM front desk staff how much it would be to extend checkout time by one HOUR to accommodate my sick kid I was told it would be $50. For an hour. Yeah right. So sad because this place has a lot of potential. Your staff will make or break a customers experience and this was awful!!!!!

Only reason we stayed was the reason is right across beach. Complained to front desk about Ac thermostat not working so it was freezing in room. Had to keep waking up to open patio door to let some cold air out. We would leave door open for a bit and then mosquitos would taid our room. My kids would wake up coughing n all of us bit by mosquitoes. Came home with sick kids. I complained every morning n they would say they will send someone to fix it. Nothing was done. Worst Ever.

It was across the street from the beach. There was no parking available. The bathroom was setup inconveniently.

Liked the fact that it was on the beach. Facility was old with many things that did not work. We were given a room that had a bad leak under the bathroom sink resulting in no water. We were moved to a different room. Breakfast was very limited. Muffins and cereal. Parking was less than adequate.
