We stayed 4 nights. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and a walk on the beach every morning. The room may have been a little less than expected, but we didn't spend much time there. Clean showers.The beds were like sleeping on the floor. We left single-digit temperatures with sleet and snow; walking barefoot on the beach was a delight. Close to shopping at St. Armand's Circle, and a great Aquarium. Lots of great restaurants, and some located on beach.
