    Stayed here for a birthday trip. Perfect location to the beach. Right across the street. We had a balcony, they had a nice little continental breakfast. Nice to not have to worry about parking. It was clean, and safe. We'd come back.

    We stayed in the room with two queen beds instead and it had plenty of room for two parents and two kids. I don't recall roll away beds being offered.
