First impression. Great location, but dated. Small quaint best for couples, but be prepared this is from the 1950's and has not had investment since then. Apparently recent changes in management could bring a positive turn.

I called and spoke to Allen he took a two night reservation over the phone and my credit card number then that evening called me and said his associate had booked the room. The odd thing was earlier he said the room was available if I wanted to come in prior to the day I booked.

"Number 9 is the best according to others but Number 1 offers the most privacy and you can sit on your own patio for the best sunsets....and I am from Colorado....we know sunsets!!"
"#9 room upstairs is 2 bedrooms as are the 2 beach front rooms however my family like #9 because it was upstairs and over a courtyard looking over all the rooms at the beach. I just like it for that but all the beachfront rooms are nice."
"9 is the biggest and the only second level."
"We stayed in unit 9, which was a perfect size for our family of 4. I was told it was the largest unit they had and the only one upstairs. The view was amazing."
"Don't waste your money. Go somewhere else."
