Hotel sits directly on the beach. My room was large and had a full size refrigerator. I had a private balcony with direct Gulf views. Check in and check out were quick and easy. There was a pool bar with Gulf and sunset views. I would return.

We stayed at 606 from Sept.21-25. It is a basic hotel with large ref, coffee maker, sink, and bathroom. Standing Shower was a bit small and some rusts but it doesn't bother me as long as there is clean water & clean place to stay. There is a room with kitchenette but we did not book that. Our room has...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you had a great time at the beach. We are planning on adding some upgraded dune walkovers in the winter, hopefully they will be in place before your next visit. Thank you for staying with us and again, thank you for your review.

My husband and myself spent 2 nights at this hotel. It was absolutely the get away hotel we needed. The view from our balcony was awesome. We enjoyed the beach it was busy but we're able to still enjoy privacy away from everyone. The room was spacious and clean. Love the quietness and the escape away from reality. The pink...

Beautiful beach, great view from the balcony of the sunset, nice to have a full refrigerator and stove, wish it had a real coffee maker not just the pods single serve but the coffee quality was good. Very friendly staff, nice pool and full bar on site with friendly bartenders, water beautiful

Lovely little resort! We shared a 2 bedroom suite with another couple and it was perfect! I cannot stress how much we appreciated the personal service we received from the staff. Each day someone inquired as to our comfort and happiness. The beach front was pristine and the parking very spacious compared to the highrises down the beach. If you...

Oh my goodness, I can only say my view was absolutely amazing!!!! I could take my view and place it in a magazine, it was breath taking. I enjoyed my stay and i will definitely be back.

We spent 5 nights at this resort and enjoyed every minute. The staff was super friendly and the room was large and comfortable. The view from the balcony was fantastic! Loved sitting out there in the early morning watching the dolphins. This resort is on the quiet side of town but not far from shopping and dining. The hardest decision...

Understand what this place is and isn't; It is a good family friendly location offering features such as about 30 seconds from your room to the sand of the beach and the warm Gulf water. It is somewhat reminiscent of the 1950s with all block and concrete construction. The room had a "kitchenette" which is a good thing since there...

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you felt we were too far from restaurants. There is a great, local breakfast and lunch place right across the street and a wonderful local seafood house about a mile to the east. You are correct, we are not a Hilton Garden Inn. But as a former HGI GM myself, I know...

Was looking for an inexpensive beachfront hotel in PCB, and booked here. If you are there for the beach, don't want anything fancy and don't mind driving to restaurants and such, this might be a good choice. We had a room on the 6th floor--2 queen beds, full size refrig and microwave. Bathroom is small and directly inside the entry...
