We visited in early June and unfortunately for us, it rained for the entire week were there. The hotel however, was conveniently located to the beach - just about a 5 - 10 minute car ride. The hotel was clean and the the bathroom was spacious. There is a small refrigerator which we used often and the staff was friendly.
The breakfasts were good and my kids loved the cinnamon rolls. They offered everything from oatmeal to sausage, scrambled eggs, cereal pancakes and bacon along with several juice options and of course, coffee and tea.
The only downside was that some of the clientele were a bit on the "rough" side. We had one guy think it was ok to come downstairs for breakfast barefoot, no shirt and his shorts were hanging so low we got a lovely view of his crack while he was in line for breakfast.
The pool is a nice feature, not the greatest, but it is what it is. Once again, the one time were able to use the pool though, we had some rough around the edges people, but they didn't bother anyone so it was all good.
The street the hotel is on does not offer much in terms of food or entertainment, but restaurants, bars and the beach are just a quick trip away. There are a couple of gas stations just down the road in case you need any sundry type items.
There is a very small fitness room with two treadmills and some free weights. It was sufficient for what I needed while we were there.
In all, for the money, I'd say it was a value.
