Stayed four days at this hotel. I would not call it a resort. All the rooms are privately owned and ours was remodeled slightly since the 70's but the room we stayed in was average and it never really got cool. Full kitchen. Beds were average. Need updated. The den furniture was new I think. I understand they do not provide full housekeeping but a family of five need clean towels and more than one roll of toilet paper during that time . They never even took garbage out. Office closes on Sunday at one which is crazy so we were out of luck. We did enjoy
the convenience of being just ten steps from the beach. Office staff was nice enough at check in. It was clean enough. We might come back for beach convenience only.
