We booked this "resort" through Southwest Vacations and were mortified when we arrived. It's basically a motor lodge. Furniture in disrepair, beds that are cheap and uncomfortable, a weird smell.....maybe we just got a bad unit but I'm sitting here at 2:00 in the morning and hoping I get SOME sleep. I will never stay here again, and will never...

Room was nice, beach is a short walk across the street, dock on bay convenient that we fished from, heated pool was great, and I thought the price was reasonable compared to other places I looked at. When we needed extra beach chairs, they were happy to...
