Check-in went smoothly with pleasant front desk staff. Room was clean. AC worked well but was noisier than other establishments. No microwave in room, but used microwave in breakfast area to nuke store-bought dinners on stormy night. Bed was fairly high off floor. Comfortable

Very nice staff, friendly and knowledgeable. I was in a snit when I found out how far away the beach was because of misinformation with an online reservation. Not the local staff's fault. Beautiful lobby and breakfast area. Nice assortment of choices for breakfast.
