Good, quiet and secure location! Within steps of beach, downtown, amusement park & pier. Staff very helpful and present. Accommodations clean but in great need of updating. Be aware of the refund policy in case of an emergency at stated on posting behind bedroom door "no refunds under any circumstance".

Grand kids love grilling out and playing games on the tables over looking the beach. Walk to the pier everyday. Staff and customers are always nice and friendly. We always book for the following year 1 year in advance. Look forward to it every year!

Wonderful location, right on the beach,very close to pier and downtown. Room and Kitchenette were great for my family. Rooms were a little dated but very clean. The outdoor patio with grills and picnic table was very nice. The deck was comfortable with lots of seating and there were beautiful flowers everywhere. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

The room was a little older style but who is in their room when you are at the beach. I spent many hours on the patio watching the ocean. The property is very clean with many beautiful flowers, and the owners are great and are always there.
