Loved staying here, having a private beach with lounge chairs and towels are a huge bonus! It is also one of the few properties that has a heated pool! The kids loved it, the continental breakfast was just right. The staff was friendly, and we will definitely be back!

Great location with a very friendly staff. From the minute you arrive to checkout, the staff is eager to help. Gulf directly across the road with chairs make it very easy to enjoy your stay. Rooms are more than adequate and very clean. Keep up the good work, we'll see you next year!!

We enjoyed our second stay again very much. Good location, VERY friendly staff! Not the most exclusive place but you get a lot for your money! A little bit dated but okay. Man sprach sogar Deutsch. We will come again.....

Nice stay and the location was excellent. On premise breakfast could start earlier than 8 am but you can always walk the beach until then. The staff is always friendly!!!!!!!! Ice machine requires money to get ice for the room and drinks. Pool is heated and easy to access.

King bed was wonderful. Lighting needs to be improved if you want to read. Closed captioning does not work. Toaster did not work. Loved the convenience to beach but didn't use it as weather was cold and windy.

We really enjoyed our stay. Great location. Highly recommended. If you are looking for a reasonable priced place to stay, want to be close to a private beach (across a 2 lane street) this is the place you want to be.

Great beach small hotel. Not a 5 star type but there are none of those in the area. A great 3 star option. Very friendly and lots of room type options. Family friendly and well cared for interior and exterior. Walking distance to lots of things and they have their own private beach area.
