First of all, you cannot have a bad room here, as there are only 8 of them and they all face the beach. We had a Queen Studio on main floor, and loved it. We were literally 5 steps from the TiKi bar, which was a riot thanks to our super friendly bartender! We had initally scheduled this trip for May, but I suffered a serious broken leg and had to reschedule. The staff/management were extremely helpful with transferring our dates and deposits, and it was much appreciated
Pros--Tiki Bar--both for local flavor and friendly conversations, proximity to beach, adorable fresh and inviting rooms,people watching, VIEWS!!! Amazing location, steps from the beach.
Cons--the only con could also be a pro, you are located at a very quiet spot on the broadwalk. it is a good mile walk to the bars/restaurants. Normally, I would love the seclusion and enjoy the beautiful stroll along the beach, but my bones are still knitting. :(
Tips--walk down to local restaurants in the morning for awesome breakfast specials. The farther you walk, the cheaper breakfast gets!! We never spent more than five dollars each, and there were many cheaper options to be had. Check out Jakes for the whitefish tacos, super delish, and the owner (Jake) is a wonderfully friendly guy, this spot also has great live music and terrific pina coladas
We will definitely return, as soon as our schedules permit. And we want to extend a heartfelt thanks to the entire staff at Walkabout, y'all exceeded our expectations!!
