We spent two nights here while in the area, and we wouldn't go back. We were in room #5, a sort of studio. The mattress was worn out and stained, which I became aware of because the sheets and mattress pad did not fit and kept popping off during the night. The sheets were made of polyester - too hot for Florida - and were torn.
The kitchenette was okay, but who needs a fridge and full stove with oven on vacation. The furniture was dated. The best thing was the cable TV, which had a good selection of channels.
The beach looked nice, although we did not have time to use it. There was decent parking not too far from the rooms.
I requested a bill for our stay, but was told they only issue the small credit card receipt. All in all, not a very professional operation.
