Refrigerator door was broken; stopper in sink was broken, dirty carpet in hotel, and room. There was not an ample amount of food for breakfast for hotel guests. Room was not as advertised in the photos online. Insufficient lighting in the room.

Polite, helpful front desk. Slightly small but very clean rooms. Hotel has pool, restaurant, and free passes to a fitness center right across the street that was really good. Close proximity to everything. Beach 15 min, gas, restaurants, Walmart, grocery stores, etc... 5-10 minutes. Complimentary breakfast could be improved.

Their rooms are great to retire to after a full day of outdoor fun. Great pub (Christopher's pub) downstairs which is fun, friendly and GREAT food (burgers and shrimp hard to beat). We want to...
