Older hotel, NO elevator to upstairs. If you want to see the the beach you have to have a 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor room. We had a 3rd floor. 4th floor has a nice large balcony with lounge chairs but they are noisy when your room is under it. Ac was turned off so we has to let the door open to outside for air. The room did smell a bit musty but after having the door open it did freshen up a bit. Bathroom was to small we were banging the walls everytime we used it.
Our room with 2 queen sized beds was a bit to small too, no chairs other than the 2 for the table 2 more would have been nice. Staff was very friendly. They have cookies everynight for the kids and family and drinks in the office (open til 11:00 PM open again at 8:00 Am). Free breakfast each morning. They also have beach chairs you can check out at the desk but must return them or you pay $40.00 each. The glass door to the upstairs was smashed when we arrived but was quickly fixed. Our glass door lock did not work but since the AC was off we let it open anyway for air. Our beds were very firm, I had to use pain pills daily just to be able to sleep on my bed/rock each night and was still up every hour so Icould get up and move before getting back on the rock for another hour.
Would not return to this hotel again but not the hotels fault it is the beach law that permits dogs that turned us off. We sat daily on our balcony and watch dog owners pretend they didn't see their dog take a dump. One guy let his dalmation take a dump called the dog and the dog went again so he covered up most of it and them put a little in his bag. He then walked into the water and threw it into the ocean where we had been swimming daily. A real turn off!
Hotel location is great but the dog doo-doo stunts were a real turn off. Was waken up at 5:00 AM one morning when 3 dogs got into a fight on the beach, nice alarm, NOT!
