Stayed here for 2 nights in mid June 2015. Hotel is average but found it pricey. You do get free wi fi and the area around the hotel is pretty nice. There is a shopping mall close by and the beach is about 10 minutes driving. There is continental breakfast available, however not a lot of seats available.

Had it not been for my hot flashes I would have froze trying to keep my guests in the back room with the king bed comfortable. My grandkids loved the hot tub as they thought it was just... More
