First let me say that if your are expecting a resort experience forget about it!! However if you are looking for a room with a killer view of the Atlantic beach front you get it here! Our room was on the 9th floor and the views of the beach/dunes, Atlantic Ocean and an awe sum thunder storm was spectacular.
I would agree with the other comments that the rooms are small and showing some age BUT they meet the needs for a decent night's sleep, cost reductions for meals as the "kitchen" meets the needs with a mini fridge-cook top-all the necessary cooking and eating stuff, small balcony but OK for two people, direct beach access and at the end of the beach front road so traffic is at a minimum.
The breakfast is a typical scramble egg-oatmeal-cold cereal buffet but there is an omelette and waffle station for a fresh egg concoction. The coffee is plentiful and good. The staff is extremely cheerful and helpful.
My wife and I went for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we would definitely go back.
