Called for an early check in after driving all night( our hotel reservation from booking.com was not valid and had no place to stay) they got us in a room by 11 am. The front desk manager was so nice and pleasant which was a huge relief after our long travel from Illinois. Great room and loved the separate bedroom... More

Nice hotel for pets..but unfortunately the hotel smelled like an animal. The front desk staff did not stand out as the best or most accommodating..but that was ok. Probably would not stay here again. The smells in the halls..rooms.. and staircase was a huge turn off.

My suite was clean. Service was friendlt and it is close to the beach. I drove 3 mins. and was at the beach. My suite had a microwave, fridge and small sink so if you are traveling with kids it is cheaper to make small meals in the suite than eat out.
