First of all, I'm not sure what the guy below is talking about. Mike, the current manager, could not have been more helpful both at the hotel and assisting us around the island. He was engaging with the other residents as well.
This hotel won't appeal to everyone. It was inexpensive. It had a kitchenette so we rcould save some cash and eat healthy during the day before going out at night and splurging.. IT was small and we were able to meet many of the other travelors. It is older. No phone and no tv - which we rather enjoy. Internet was spotty but functional. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was healthy.
Down sides: no AC which can be an issue from mid afternoon to a couple of hours after sunset (we purchased a $17 fan when we went for groceries). We were so close to the beach that the waves breaking at high tide were loud (my wife used ear plugs that she uses for flying). Parking was an annoyance but manageable.
