“Great Location”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Wonderful staff, the building was spotless except for a few cigarette butts around door, but that's due to tourist! Beautifully landscape & scenic location with access to walking on the beach.

“great but not where the sat nav says it is”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I think this is now in a new building about .3 of a mile closer than where my brand new sat nav says it is. ooops.

The building is good and the advice was great, restrooms were clean.
