We had a very nice and relaxing stay here. The room was perfect. Loved having the kitchen and we did use it. They had just about everything we needed. Kroger and Walmart are less than 2 miles away. The staff was very friendly. The pool was refreshing and the walk to the beach was a short walk down the walkway.
Just know that they hardest thing was the elevator. Each side only has one. Since the hotel is elevated for sea level, you have to first get on the elevator to ride to the office on the second floor. The stairs are locked on the ground level for security for obvious reasons. So the most inconvenient thing was the elevator. I took the stairs most the time and that was a good workout from the 5th floor.
There was only cleaning service if you requested it. Which is what I like since I am very about privacy and do not like people coming in and out of my room unless i need something. The staff was very friendly.
Not the hotels doing and mother nature is out of their control but they do seem to have a sea weed problem this time of year. Walking thru 2 feet high sea weed was not fun and it would have been nice if the hotel did come down and clear some paths for people to use the beach. But like I said, it's not their fault but yet they really didn't have anyone down there doing anything to make the visit to the beach better. Of course, it's possible the beach is not their property so that may be why they do nothing to clear off the seaweed in their stretch of the beach. Before making your vacation plans, see if there is any sea weed issues the time of year you go. The smell was not all that pleasant.
