When we arrived, we found a dirty, smelly room with holes in the ceiling and every wall, a refrigerator with food spills in it, thread-bare towels with 8 inch... More

But at Castaways, the guy at the front desk was extremely nice, had rooms open, & suggested places to eat. Here's a list... More

When we arrived, the office staff was so courteous and made us feel welcome. We got to the room and it was a nice size and very clean for the very inexpensive... More
