“Clean, affordable, prime location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

Very clean accomodation & linens, location can't be beat, pleasant manager, & extremely affordable. Old Florida charm with terazzo floors, turquoise shower curtains. If you don't need all the bells & whistles, would rather save your money and enjoy the natural attractions in the area, this is a clean well-equipped accomodation.
