Hotel was fantastic! We stayed only for the weekend but wish we could have longer! They were doing some construction but it didn't bother us any. Loved that we were directly on the beach and how all units face the beach! Also they had just updated the shower and it was wonderfully done! We would definitely stay here again!

Motel was very comfortable to stay in and was very clean with very friendly service. It's sad they are remodeling it now because it was so beautiful the way it was. It was walking distance to places to eat as well as directly on the beach.

Why get a condo when you don't need one? Great location with fabulous views! Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious and service was wonderful! The entire staff was courteous and helpful! Can't wait to see the complete renovations next year!
