Stayed for 5 nights for our anniversary in early November. We are in our late 30s. The hotel was very inline with the Trip Adviosr comments and met our expectations. Older property and very well maintained. Front desk was very helpful with local suggestions. The quant setting of only 30 rooms was a primary factor in our decision. The free breakfast was great. More than a typical continental offered by most. Free beach chairs/umbrellas are great benefits to a hotel "on the beach". The free bycylces were very helpful. I would definitely recommend a replacement schedule of a couple bikes per year with new ones that have speeds (gears).
We had a second floor oceanfront suite. Great view! Would suggest a pricing differential from first floor since it doesn't have the full view. Bathrooms are remodeled inclusive of granite counters. Kitchenette is older. However still looks nice, but could benefit with granite counters and new cabinets. The louvered blinds on the slider were annoying. If you open the slider door, you must close the blinds on the other half of door, which prevents the premium view of the Gulf. The tile floor showed alot of scarring particuarly with some stains from a prior rug. These are just minor suggestions for improvement. Very happen with our choice. Would stay again and recommend to others.
