We stayed at this hotel as the second part of our family road trip. It is very inviting from the the front. I'm a big fan of "old-school" neon signs. Parking is a little bit of an issue, but we didn't feel like anything would happen to our car. We were able to park under our room. The room was clean and the staff was very nice. The bathroom was small, but gave up a cabin like feel, we liked it. We had a room next to an efficiency and the kitchen door butted right up to our room. The door was thin, and we could hear everything that went on next door. A lot of smokers seem to congregate at this hotel. The pool was very nice with a well manicured courtyard. a large crowd of people that knew each other checked in during our second day. The people were nice, but they took the place over with smoking and drinking. Our children seemed to be pushed out of the pool. The hotel is right on the beach, but it is 600-700 feet to the Gulf on the beach. The beach is also not exactly white sand, a lot of shells. You defintely need shoes for the walk to the Gulf. Also, I would recommend water shoes as I cut my foot and needed stitches from "shuffling my feet" to avoid sting rays.
