We live on the other coast of Florida but wanted to check out the Gulf coast. Found this place on tripadvisor and after reading such good reviews we thought we would give it a shot. Upon checking in the staff at the desk, Katie and Jackie, were friendly, polite, smiling and very helpful. After checking in and settling in our rooms we discovered the TV would not work. We called the desk and they immediately sent up someone to troubleshoot the situation, which turned out to just be a connection issue, nothing major. The room itself was great...nicely remodeled bathroom which was VERY clean, king size bed with comfortable pillows, big screen TV, fridge, stove, the amenities were there! We had one of the 2 beachfront view balcony rooms which was just lovely. We watched the sunset every evening with a great view! The beach was gorgeous and the water very warm and inviting. We noticed that the hotel is kept very well and every day the grounds were maintained including pool area and common areas. The maid service was very polite and offered to bring us anything extra we would need.
Overall we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at this nice small hotel and would highly recommend staying here to anyone who wants a wonderful stay on the beach in a clean, nicely run hotel. It does have more of a low-key beach style feel to it so if you prefer super high class resorts with all the fancy-schmancy thrills, bells and whistles this might not work for you. Otherwise, this place is a charm!
