My wife and I stayed for two nights with our 2 college aged boys and had a great time. I'd caution travelers though that this is a place that is what you make of it. The good: Beautiful location. Perhaps a 30 yard walk from our room to the ocean. Clean room. Comfortable beds and friendly staff. Pool was clean... More

My mom and I stayed for 5 nights. The room is not huge, but just what we needed. Comfortable beds, clean, and AC! The breakfast baskets are a wonderful touch. We enjoyed the beach each day and made it out by 8:30 to make sure we got an umbrella. Staff was all very friendly.

Awesome deal for your money! Directly on the beach, this hotel features a huge pool (no bar), and all rentals included in your hotel stay. Beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, bicycles, and paddle boards are all free of charge. The rooms are spacious with a nice balcony. There are only 46 or 48 rooms, so it is cozy. I would stay... More

Stayed here for a couple nights last week. Our room was very spacious and had a beautiful view of the gulf. The breakfast basket was a nice touch. They also have kayaks that you can use for no extra charge. My favorite part was being able to walk out to the beach. It definitely saved a lot of money rather... More

Location was good, property was well maintained nothing fancy... No Frills, but it served its purpose since we only stayed one night. The basket for the breakfast was good and they gave you plenty of stuff yogurt, milk, orange juice, box cereal, and bagels.

We had a wonderful visit. We had few minor inconveniences, but nothing that would keep us from returning.The breakfast basket has a great selection, and there was more than enough for everyone. The inn is in a quiet area, which was fantastic. My children had a great time and the weather was beautiful.
