an older bldg. not perfect but rooms were remodeled and clean. Great location. Wave riders and other beach toys including lounge chairs available for free. Staff friendly, pool clean, balcony on the beach. Couples and families were there. BBQ area. Continental breakfast had fresh waffles and a great fresh fruit salad. Had a fine visit and would stay there again.

I had a wonderful time here with my significant other. This is our 2nd time coming back and it for sure won't be the last! We got the oceanfront king bedroom and we loved it so much. It was perfect for our getaway.
