We stayed in an oceanfront efficiency on the top floor, and other family members stayed in an oceanfront two bedroom on the first floor. We have stayed here many times over the years, but it has been a few years since our last visit. The updated tile floors are a nice change (they used to be carpeted and got wet and mildewed often). Both rooms were comfy, quiet and mostly clean. When we arrived, our AC unit wasn't working very well. I mentioned it to the front desk, and while I was at the water boggan with my kids on the 4th of July holiday, maintenance came and replaced the whole unit! The tiny kitchen in my room was stocked better than I expected, and I was able to cook a meal for 4 adults in there. My almost 12 year old slept on the pull-out sofa and said he was comfortable, and I shared the double (wish it were bigger) bed with my 6 year old. If my husband had joined us, we would have been cramped. Our bed did not have the plastic zipped cover on it mentioned in another review, but it did have a soft removable mattress cover. The mattress was very firm and the pillows were pleasantly plump. The pool was not as clean as I would have liked, but we went swimming anyway. The beach was fabulous. It was really nice to finish off the day in the swing facing the ocean, although our view was blocked by other guests leaving their sun tents out overnight. Overall, it was a good weekend.
