Just a great old-school motel type resort with a nice pool directly on the ocean. Little tiki bar and plenty of outside seating to boot. Guest laundry worked well, bag breakfasts were nice COVID friendly option. A quieter section of the beach away from the mayhem but a short walk to a deli (across the street) and on the trolley line. Nice large decks with solid privacy walls between the units. Nicely if simply appointed, quiet, overall excellent. You get the feeling they don't tolerate alot of shenanigans, which at my age is a welcome sense of confidence and control over the quality of your experience. Nice place.

My family has been going to this hotel for almost 10 years in a row. There are many positive things about this hotel. Love the location and the fact that is right on the water. The beach is beautiful and there is plenty of space. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly. The heated pool is a great feature and just recently they added a bar which is a hit with all of us. The only negative is their room reservation process. The only way to reserve a room is by calling starting January 2nd of the year you want to stay. They only have one line so the phone is busy for most of the day. I have dialed that number hundreds of times and spend most of my day hitting redial until I can get through. We have approached the owner about this but he says he wants to be fair to everyone that wants a room. Not sure I agree with this response. It does not seem too fair to the people that have being loyal to them for so many years. Many of us regulars are very frustrated with this process as we usually discuss it while we are there, sometimes we wish we didn’t like at as much so we can move on. It would be nice if they would let the people that have been coming for many years book ahead of time to show them some appreciation for their loyalty. I have never seen a hotel book their rooms in this manner. I would have given them a higher rating if it was not for their booking system. Oh well is January 2nd 2:00pm and I have been trying to call non-stop since 8 am, I guess I will continue to hit redial for maybe one last year.

Although we did not go into the water, the hotel was comfortable, the surrounding villages were interesting and the seafood, especially the lobster, was delicious and reasonably priced. The hotel has rental equipment, but we brought our own, comfortable chairs.
