Very peaceful and relaxing

We had a wonderful stay here. When we walked in it had an older smell, but we just used a room spray and it covered that up. You definitely get what you pay for, but it was perfect for a cheap, last minute vacation. The dishes were very dirty before we used them. We found that hand washing the dishes also worked much better than the actual dish washer. There is no washer and dryer in the unit, but there is shared washer and dryers you have to pay for ($2.00 for wash, $1.50 for drying). Some machines worked and some didn’t. There needs to be a coin machine in the laundry rooms (bring your quarters if you plan to wash clothes). The sound of the furnace was SUPER loud when it kicks on. Throughout the night it would scare me awake, I’m a light sleeper, so I didn’t sleep well, but the bed was comfy. My last complaint was the blinds. They were all different sizes and some were broken, so it was very bright in the mornings, I would suggest curtains, but this truly was a fun place to stay. It’s the necessities! We were also pleasantly surprised that we could watch the sunset from the room at night! It was beautiful from the room! There is WiFi in the room as well. If you are looking for a fun place to stay this was amazing! Don’t let my little complaints scare you away from this place! We had a blast and this was perfect! Thank you so much for a great vacation!

This was exactly what we needed. I had a teenager and two littles with me and we needed a place to reset and refuel between all the fun. The swimming pool, game room & beach access were awesome and the beach in this area was not crowded at any time. We loved all the different views of the beach not only from our room but from the different balcony's on our way down to the beach. Everyone was very nice and it was so quiet and peaceful at night. I would definitely stay here again :)

The place is older and well worn but it was sufficiently clean and comfortable. The beach was nice and convenient.

Very nice clean. Would absolutely will stay again
Leigh N. Jun 2018
We loved the facility along with the pool. The only thing about our room was the cabinets/kitchen area and some furniture needed more updated. Overall it was nice and we would stay again for the price !

This is an older property. The futons were pretty bad but we did not use them as there was only two of us. It would be tight for more than 2 people. Other than that it is good value. Great view, Nice pool, good beach access. We liked it.

For those who need a cheaper room so they can do things outside the room then this is the one for you ! We enjoyed a great vacation that the room didn't break the bank so that we could spend our time outside the room !!!
Keisha M. Jul 2015
We will definitely be back!
Chris B. Jul 2015

Had a great time loved the view from the room.

My wife and I stayed here for our 6 year anniversary and we had a blast. The room isn't huge but it's perfect for two people. The view of the beach out of the HUGE windows over the bed is beautiful. Nice little kitchen perfect for a quick meal but if you don't want to cook there are plenty restaurants near by, I recommend Fireflys. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and look forward to going back in the future.
