This is located on the beach, seems like all rooms have a ocean facing balcony. Stayed in room 312 which is a great location, near the stairs and has nice ocean views. The hotel also has elevators if you cant take the stairs. Room is spacious and clean, but its very outdated and worn down, like every other hotel in...

I definitely recommend this hotel. Its not fancy, but it has everything you need, private balcony, pool,hot tub, patio, its own bar, close to publix and stores. Also the staff was very very nice. This is great for a weekend trip. Negatives: elevator is slow and it looks kind of old when you pull in to the parking lot....but those...

Great location, beautiful beach! Not as crowded as this resort is a little West of most hotels. Very helpful friendly staff! Went with friends for a long weekend getaway. We will be back. Balconies overlooking the beach and great for watching the sunset.

The staff were friendly and helpful and even asked if we wanted a room on a lower or higher level. We ended up on the 6th floor and the view was amazing! The room was pretty basic but clean with comfortable beds, and the kitchen was stocked with basic cooking necessaries and dishes. We visited the bar which was quaint,...

The view from the third floor was perfect! Room was clean and even the window was clean to see the beautiful ocean! Our balcony was so nice and private to sit and just listen to the ocean. Even the staff was very friendly.

You cannot beat the ocean front location. Truly sugar white sands. Nice staff. Not the fanciest place for sure, but everything you need. No breakfast provided, but fridge, microwave. Does have coffee in room. Go for a higher floor for the view.
