Located beachside, it's a short walk from the pier, but far enough away to not be too loud. The facility has an indoor pool incase you need to get out of the sun or have crumby weather and a small playground. They have a large variety of room options so ask to see others when you arrive if you're not... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay, the issues you told us about at check out were addressed and corrected an hour after you left. Had you told us about them when they were discovered we could have made your stay more comfortable. The Beach Gardens property is an older beach motel. You are paying for the location and the...
