Our stay was for a short time, but was very pleasant. Martha, at the office, is a doll, who can't do enough for you to make your stay a great one. She is helpful, courteous, and extremely nice. No room is a bad room, as each one looks out at the Gulf of Mexico (the first floor rooms are partial view since the shrubs block it somewhat at beach level, so the top floor would give you a full view of the grounds and beach). I liked the first floor because we were in an end unit which was fine for two people. We had the Murphy bed and a beautiful kitchenette that was fully stocked with all you would need, of course, besides your food and drink. It had a pull out sofa but to tell you the truth, the room (Studio) is too small for this. If you pulled it out to have two more people sleep, you won't be able to walk through the room. The room was clean, cleaning staff were nice, and you can't beat the location. The beach is so clean and there is soft, white sand, that cradles your feet like fresh powder. The beach is lovely and waiting for you each day. I liked how the pool was so close as well as the patio right out back to sun or simply eat outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather. I liked this place. It is a small hotel and quiet, but that is what I liked about it. It is has a washer/dryer that you share with others. I never had a problem when I wanted to use it. People were all friendly and how can you go wrong being on the Gulf of Mexico? For the price, it is definitely worth it. Great for couples, families, and the like. Close to great restaurants and shopping too. Great place to stay.
