The room was a studio with kitchenette, A/C, and a bathroom. The bed was dirty when we got there (and by this I mean there were hairs, crumbs and dirt on the sheets). I told the manager and he just gave us an extra set of sheets. There's no housekeeping, so don't count on anything being clean. Fortunately, we brought our own set of sheets. The kitchenette was really understocked, so I had to go to the Publix down the road to get basic things like bowls and spoons.
The bathroom had me a bit worried, because whoever did the electric work didn't do it right. The light switch shocked me a couple times, and someone had put in an ungrounded outlet into one of the light sockets above the sink. This is a serious building code violation; if you plug anything into that outlet and it falls into the sink, you're dead. Ungrounded outlets/wiring do NOT belong in a bathroom! There were maybe two or three towels, but again I brought my own so that was OK.
I was also a bit disappointed by pool. The filter/pump weren't working, so it was full of leaves and garbage.
Otherwise, the beach was nice, and I had a great trip! Free parking was a plus, but next time I'd rather pay the extra $10 or $20 a night for something better.
