I booked this hotel based on the price and other reviews as well as closeness to the beach. Honestly, I didn't have high hopes but was pleasantly surprised by how perfect it was. The hotel is older but it was very clean, which is always my concern. The staff where really nice and helpful and friendly. The location is great. Just a short two blocks to the beach and restaurants-very easy walk. The pool was small but clean and perfectly sufficient. The hotel itself is located on the bay so when we walked out the back door of our room we were right on the water. There was a deck with chairs for sitting and enjoying the view. The room itself was large with a kitchen, eating area plus two beds and a pull-out couch, so plenty big for the five of us. The area where the two beds where was a bit narrow with no nightstand, just a floor lamp between the beds and the lighting in the room was not that good. But those are my only complaints and I would definitely stay here again. Just a few other positives about the hotel which is really more of a motel...they have a coffee maker in the room with packets of coffee so even though they don't serve breakfast you can make yourself some coffee when you get up. They have beach chairs for you to borrow if you want. We brought our own so didn't use them. They also had a fishing pole to use if you wanted, though someone broke it while we were there so not sure if that will be replaced. And they had beach towels to use by the pool. Not sure if you are allowed to bring those to the beach or not. I spoke to the owner and he said they were going to be doing some renovating over the next year but I would stay here again with the hotel just as it is.
