    Thank you for the great review! We always appreciate a good constructive review to make improvements at our facilities. Thank you and happy travels!

    Stayed in the self contained truck, Husband loved it. Make sure you can climb into the bed, which is above the cab. Woke up to ocean views from our bed. Staff very friendly, amenities good, and very clean.
