Overall score2.0/ 5
The 1st room would not allow our key card to open our door. We were told the key card would not work because they look was frozen. The 1st room had mold in the ceiling. Both 1st and 2nd room floors were dirty. Both were neat.

"Outdated Appliances,Unclean Sheets,Staff Accomodating,Not Sanitary."
Overall score2.0/ 5
The staff was very accommodating however the location needs updating. The sheets in our room were disgusting. The appliances were gross and old. The pots were broken. The room had new carpet and furniture but it did not make up for the unsanitary feel of the room.

"Very comfortable and reasonably priced!"
Overall score4.0/ 5
I was not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised! Our room was very comfortable and clean. Wonderful view of the ocean! The pool was really accommodating for our two year old since there were several long graduated steps going in, she loved playing on those! Beach access is so close and the beach was not very busy at all. Staff was very friendly and check in and out were hassle free. Breakfast was adequate, cereal, bread items, waffles, but could use some more protein and healthy options such as peanut butter and whole wheat toast. The yogurt was a great option to have. The location was very convenient too. Would definitely plan to stay here again!
