Beautiful quaint hotel/motel. Very friendly great views. Breakfast not up to much but enough to get you going in the morning. Would highly recommend a stay here and would love to come back. Not sure I would spend two weeks but a short stay like I did for sure.

The hotel has a beautiful view of the bay and is around 150 yards from the beach, although this cannot be seen due to... More

The hotel itself was very nice - exceptionally clean, the location was perfect, the staff were really friendly and helpful. There were lots of small amenities that showed a lot of thought on the part of the management - laundry services available, a clothesline in the back for drying wet suits and towels, chairs overlooking the bay. The room itself... More
