The rooms were very clean. The outside was beautiful and the bar/restaurant was great. There's construction going on in the entrance but aside from that our visit was great. There's cable and wifi and The kids fished in the marina for fun. I would recommend it and will definitely be returning.

I like to read bogus reviews and the one from May 5TH IS JUST THAT!!! There is no way it could be true due to the fact that the restaurant closed down the last week in April. Just a heads up for customers about the reality of this place. Just stay away, there are ALOT better places to spend your... More

Stayed Mothersday weekend with my girlfriend, there was confusion about where to check in, once checked in we looked for the amenities as advertised Bar/resturant was closed due to financial issues? Our room was as clean. We had an issue with a sink leaking in which we were given a new room. There was no beach per say, more like... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Very clean. Felt safe. Food was great. Service was prompt and thorough. Wifi service better in the bar areas than in the rooms, but not a deterrent. Would recommend and will return.

The staff constantly complained about the management and I can see why.To families, there is nothing for children to do there at all.The parking sucked and you felt like your in a constant construction zone.Quaint is not even close.Old with new paint is more like it.The restaurant and bar closed so early I can see why NO ONE goes there...

We traveled from Los Angeles Ca. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday. So it was not a long stay and in the middle of Spring Break. Hotel was clean, beds where very comfortable as we laid down exhausted every night. Room had kitchenette as well as full service restaurant and bars on the property. Extremely convenient foe all types... More

This place is a dump! The room was filthy, the floor was cracked, I found two cockroaches, I found hair on my pillow, the cable box kept falling out from behind the tv and you couldn't change the channel unless you leaned way over to the left and pointed it at the box. On top of it being a total... More

We thought we reserved a downstairs room, but they said no. That's how it started. The upstairs room (number4) was a dump. Not very clean but acceptable. The bathroom door has an old rusty eye hook inside because it won't stay closed. There is no hot water. When I complained the manager told me it was because everyone was probably... More

I'd like to thank you for taking the time to review our resort. And, I'll take the time and clear up a few things. As for the hot water, we have plenty of hot water in all of our rooms as we do in the entire property. We do however have some of our faucets a little on the quirky... More

I don't have a single bad thing to say about this little resort. Had a great stay for the price we got at the last minute. It's not a 4 star hotel by any means, and you receive an actual key (which I think is totally awesome and rustic!) The continental breakfast was actually surprising, and the location is perfect!...

Dilapidated structure through piles of earth and rubble; just arrived we had to find the reception which is a kind of closet always with no one to talk to. The first room was nice, but the loud noise of the refrigerators of the adjacent bar makes it impossible to sleep . They changed the room, uglier than the first but... More

I'd like to address this review with the utmost respect. I clearly remember you as our guest. And I also recall that the lady had an accident and we transferred you into another room to accommodate to this accident. I'm sorry about the street construction. Wec can not do much about that. More
