My friend are were on a road trip and we had planned on camping at the state park. We went and looked at the site and were not impressed, plus a huge thunderstorm was rolling in off the gulf, so we decided to find a hotel. We booked this hotel on Expedia, it had it listed at $400 but was discounted to $120. (I would never pay or stay here for $400). We booked our room from the parking lot and went in to check in, and they already had our reservation. The room was clean, and pretty standard. The best part of the room was the porch. Since it was raining and we couldn't go across the street to the beach, we sat on our porch, relaxed, and enjoyed a few beers. Our porch faced another hotel, but was angled so you could see the gulf. Overall a very nice stay.
The hotel's continental breakfast was very good.
I would stay here again.
