Awesome place! Will definitely be going back again! Already looking to book our next visit for a longer stay. Hotel was very clean and location was perfect..right across from the beach and we were able to rent jet skis right there and umbrellas and chairs are included with your room!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights this week for a little family getaway. The rooms were cleaned and the staff was very friendly. It's a short walk across the street to the beach. Only bad part was the pool was broken the whole time.

We recharged at this quaint little resort by the Gulf. We were given an upgraded room upon request, and found the customer service outstanding. The Gulf water was warm and clear. We enjoyed the free trolley rides as well. We would return and recommend.

My now-husband and I are both from different states, so we were looking for somewhere with beach access where the majority of out-of-towners could stay close to us for our event. From the first time I called in to ask for information, I... More
