My wife and I stayed for four nights at this small hotel in March 2013. The location is justr across the streat from the beach and the Sea Spray provides sand chairs for guests. Parking is provided, a necessity in LBTS. I will say that with the windows open this area is somewhat noisey in the early morning, being located a half block from A1A which is quite busy in LBTS. We stayed in unit #2 on the ground floor, which is exposed to the intersection of 2 streets and adjoins some sort of loud mechanical device that comes on each morning for about a minute at a time, but it is enough to preclude sleeping in past 8:30 AM. I suggest booking on the upper floors, away from the side street, unit 3 would be best. The apartment we used is a one bedroom unit, spacious enough and quite clean. Bed and furniture was comfortable.Kitchen has every possible utensile, dishes and bowls that I have ever seen in a small rental hotel in this area, where we have rented many times. However, it boggles the mind that there would be absolutely not one condiment to be had, not even salt and pepper! Most people that stay in these small hotels will cook some nights (as we do) especially if you are staying for more tan a few days. People tend to leave condiments behaind when they leave and mostly every place we have stayed leaves them for the next occupant. Also had issues with an ancient coffee maker (and it's replacement was even older and did not work) I finally just walked to the 7-11 at the corner and bought coffee. It seems this place is operated by the on-site owners who may be into economizing on some things like small appliances and broken window shades that could be replaced inexpensively. This is annoying to most people on vacation, hope they get the message. The owners should also consider adding icemakers to the refrigerators, instead of leaving empty plastic ice trays for guests to deal with. The bathroom and shower was a high point, with newer stone tiles and glaas blook wall. Very nice! All in all, a good stay that could have been great with a few minor updates. Would we stay ther again? Only if unit 1 or 3 were available.
Pick unit 1 (first floor) or 3 (second floor walkup)

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review regarding your stay with us in March, and thank you for your positive comments. To address your concern specifically regarding providing salt & pepper, I have worked in the public health arena for decades, and the health and safety of our guests is paramount. As such, we provide NO condiments of any kind as they cannot be properly cleaned between guests. I can assure you that anything that is left over by previous guests is destroyed for health reasons - cleanliness is our highest priority and destroying any food or liquid items is part of that commitment. Regarding the noise, being on a corner we realize that can be an issue, however we did install impact resistant doors and windows in order to help mitigate it, and when they are closed it is usually very quiet in the rooms. As for other maintenance concerns, we try to take care of small things immediately, but we make most improvements during low season after May 1st, when there is more time to do so. Again, thank you for your comments and we hope to see you back one day soon.
