My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long Valentine's weekend and we had a great time! Our room was nice and very clean. We loved being so close to the Ocean. Amy was wonderful and very helpful. We will definately be returning and bringing our kids with us.

We had a wonderful view from our waterfront room...and then it went downhill after that. Dirty, dingy, dumpy best describes this place. See pictures. Sign by office read "all new beds" yet ours was about 20 years old at least and gave us back issues after. Tiled shower painted over, kitchen table painted over too, both had paint flaking off....

My wife and I wanted a little break from everyday life and also wanted to treat our doggies to a night out. Found this place on bringfido.com and it was Awesome. We stayed in room 20 facing the Gulf and it is right on the beach. We could hear the waves breaking all night and that was so relaxing. The... More

Room was crowded with no view - 50 sq. ft. of walking space. The light stopped working but was not replaced. Manager was rude, aggressive and overcharged our Visa when we upgraded to a different room.

Hello; You made your reservation through a booking engine for a studio unit at a certain price, which you received. Granted you REQUESTED a beach front room but there were none available and haven't been for months or you would have had the ability to PICK one of those rooms, at a higher rate than you chose. You stayed 2... More

Our 1st time staying. We really needed a laid back weekend. It was so relaxing! Our Boy's (dogs) even loved it. We hope to get back soon! Been looking for a pet friendly place close by! Not all the tourist traps like a lot of the other beaches have. We really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed 3 days. Cute little place.. older but clean. Nice spacious room with full size appliances.Nice deck with our own private table and umbrella and lounge chairs. Have chairs and beach towels to take to the beach which we did daily. Used their gas grill more than once! I loved this little piece of heaven! Thanks Marilyn and Amy!

This is very belated (sorry!).....my husband, son, and I stayed here in June. It was the perfect "on-beach" getaway, especially for the money. We had a balcony beach view, which was perfect for sunsets. We are not really the tourist-y type, so the grill and fire pit gave it that comfortable "home" feel. We were able to bring down a...
