What a great deal! We love the gulf coast and frequent the area a lot. We have stayed at many different hotels in the area and most are old, so so and overpriced. Unit 245 at this site has it all. A caring owner, a very nicely remodeled unit that is clean, large, modernized, very reasonably priced for what you get and best of all, it has a spectacular view. The place is properly managed by on site staff, the premises well kept and everyone we encountered was friendly. Not one single complaint about our entire stay, just plenty of good memories. Well, there is one complaint, we wish we had been able to find out about the place sooner so we could have been staying here instead of so so motels that pale in comparison to this place. Great stay, great price, great memories. What more could you ask for in a beach visit!
