Nice people, great size room and closet. the bath a little tight, but everything else was fun! Bar and entertainment and the closeness to the beach and boardwalk is the best! Too bad the weather was a bit windy...25 mile per hour wind gusts...sand blasting not sun bathing......but that is not the hotels call. We will be Back!!!!

As a first time visitor to Florida from Alaska, I was happy to find a place right on the boardwalk near the beach and just as happy to find the room to be nice and cool. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. I would stay here again.

This is a great little spot. When we arrived, Happy Hour was in full swing. We joined the crowd for a pre-dinner adult beverage and enjoyed the company and the wonderful view from the patio. There was a mix of snow birds and guest. It was great to chat with them and get some local restaurant suggestions. This place is...

Clean and roomy. Right on the beach it doesnt get any better than this . Cool old school hotel with awesome employees. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Note that if you have trouble with stairs you will definitely want to request ground floor as the stairs are narrow.Wish we could have stayed all week.
