    The Hotel sits right on the water, screen doors are not a problem. In Alabama you have to be 21 unless proof of marriage. When unsure, leave pets home Ask for ocean view and you will have it or look at the parkijg lot

    You will be approximately 50 yards from the water. You will be on the beach!! And yes you can leave the door open and listen to the waves all night! Enjoy!!
