This hotel was a perfect distance to the beach, right down a short alley. The room was updated and clean. The staff was helpful. The tiki bar was convenient though we only used it once... And the outdoor shower was a godsend. It was definitely a budget stay - the shampoo was a free magazine sample and there was no house keeping. BUT you could get fresh linens and towels on request, including beach towels. So that rocked. Small rooms but you're really only there to sleep or ride out a storm. Overall, really enjoyed the stay.
