This place is unbelievable. I was met by the manager (Phil) upon arrival and was helped and instructed where to launch, dock my boat and park my trailer. Afterward we were shown our room which was tidy and very clean. The front of the hotel is landscaped in such manner that did not look like a hotel but more like a large Keys home. Although I did not go into the pool, it was also very clean and looked refreshing. The hotel has Bar B Ques for cooking. It is located in a strategic location where everything you would need is within a short walk or driving distance.
Opening the sliding glass door of the room led to the dock and our boat. Talk about convenience! The canal where you dock the boat is about a block away from Vaca Cut which has Gulf or Ocean access. Ice is available in the hotel for a nominal fee. Bait, fuel, and fishing gear is close which is also a convenience.
The only caveat I have is, our stay came and went at the blink of an eye. I"ll be back (soon)....
