My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to the Keys. The positives are the owners (very accommodating), location (close to the boardwalk/beach), and overall funky vibe (cheery Christmas lights around the public area). A significant negative was our room, Room 105. It was a corner room with little ventilation. The fan or AC was not on so when we entered the room, it had a strong mildew odor. We tried putting on the AC/fan to see if it would alleviate the smell but no luck. We decided to see if we could switch rooms; the owners were great. They checked out the odor and agreed that there was an issue and needed to do something about it. They said that no one had complained before so they didn't know it was an issue. That's why it's so important to let owners know so they can fix any problems. They put us in a suite for the night which was more than adequate. No mildew odor but there was an issue with the television remotes. They didn't work; not a huge problem but another issue that wasn't quite right. I said something the next day so they were aware of the problem. All in all, for the money, I think it was fine for one night. I don't think we would stay there for any extended period of time.
