My wife and Granddaughter spent a couple nights in room #246. The hotel is older but very well kept. Room #246 had everything you need for a great vacation. The place is super clean and comfortable. The office staff is helpful and a pleasure to talk to. All the rooms are beachfront and the view can't be beat. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
