This is our 4th year staying at the Buccaneer over the 4th of July holiday. We'll go back next year.
The rooms are simply said, average motel rooms. No frills, nothing fancy. Rough towels (horrible if you are sunburned so bring your own towels), musty smelling rooms BUT clean and the deluxe room has a refrigerator and microwave. How much time to you spend in the room when you are at the beach anyway.
The location is PERFECT - right on the bay - and great for a large group. There are 2 rooftop decks where we all joined together for drinks and appetizers (watch the fireworks with out a crowd) and a pool where you can go for something other than the beach. (Plenty of chairs poolside) Every room has 2 chairs and small table outside so you can get up in the morning, sit outside, sip your coffee and look at the bay.
Close to the beach and beach tags with your room rental.
I know this place has gotten some bad reviews, but we have always enjoyed our stay. In this case we aren't going for the room, we are going for the location and some of the amenities that are very convenient.
