What a great place to kick up your feet, and be able to access everything. It's a place where you can park, go to the beach, go down the Boardwalk to eat, and do a little fishing too. Shopping, great food, entertainment.... It's all available within walking distance.

I stayed here last weekend to go fishing and had a great time. The rooms, pool, and hot tub were the cleanest I've ever seen at any place I've stayed at. Everyone who works there are great. I can't wait to come back next year and stay longer than just the weekend!

This place is a gem. It is clean (No bugs spotted even when I looked). The place is well kept. The pool and hot tub and clean with plenty of seating. It is walking distance to everything in Kure. Right across the side street from the beach, along the board walk. I couldn't have asked for a better trip. If... More
