No Air Conditioning should definitely be mentioned when booking. It is not secure to sleep with windows open and uncomfortably warm if acclimated to A/C. They did give me a box fan with the ineffective personal fan after sitting in lobby. No lock on screen for sliding door. If coming for retreat, mandated to buy an expensive meal plan which works if you are vegan/vegetarian. Chicken THIGHS I would not say is worth $65/day with breafast options always oatmeal bread, eggs the way they want and fruit. Lunch meats or veggie wraps for lunches. Less than a "standard" hotel on breakfast. Beautifully decorated but wish more money spent in hotel basics. Beds are not comfy, cheap mattress on a wood frame, no springs and no boxspring. Small cupboard between beds couldn't hang a shirt without it dragging on base of cabinet. Then bathroom mirror at bar depth so the 2 feet narrow bathroom counter was a shock too. Ice bucket is that plastic uninsulated bin which doesn't work in the heat until your items get cold in the fridge (mini size). So if staying because you want middle of nowhere on ocean and not looking a resort, it's great. If going to retreat and looking "resort", advise drive in each day. Btw, not handicapped accessible either. Even if your room first floor, flight of steps to attend retreat or go eat. I could not get rental car with only debit card and cash so was at mercy to stay there. $50 taxi to town ONE way (Aug 2013). Ate ham sandwich and chicken thighs and no breakfast other than ham. Desk clerk laughed when I said how ridiculous it was...it was not funny. Also took 30 minutes to check out awaiting someone to figure out how to take days off for my leaving the"retreat" early.
