Thank You for your wonderful Review

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. Quick access to the beach was nice and we didn’t have any issues with parking. Our biggest complaint would be the cleanliness of the bathroom as well as the lack of a fan in there. However, we would most certainly stay again.

Wonderful location. It is true to the statement of "beachfront". The room was neat and clean, and had a great view even with the side view it was wonderful.

Very friendly staff. On the pricy side, we were charged for beach chairs and beach towels. But it was a nice room on the beach.

Love the short walk to the beach and that the area was quieter than public entrances. Parking was a struggle due to limitations. Please provide taxi info to all at check-in. Best thing ever to park the car and not move it until we were leaving.
