We spent 1 night over the weekend. Stayed in a queen room with ensuite bathrm - sink in rm. They had a ceiling fan - said there was ac but didn't really feel it in rm. It is a basic room - a bed ,bureau, table & an armchair. Would have liked more room. It would be nice to have more towels 1 set each- no place to hang them - towels were damp the next day. The quilt and blanket needed to be washed - stains.
The hotel offered complimentary beach chairs & umbrellas @ beach. Also there were refreshments in afternoon - ice water,punch and chocolate chip cookies and a platter of cheeses & crackers out on porch.
Spoke with Dillon when making arrangements & @ checkin. Staff was a pleasure @ checkin but the woman @ checkout was brusque & harried. Asked to see another rm was told they weren't made up. Pushed to see anyways and did but wasn't asked if I wanted to make a future reserve or what I thought of room.
Next time I'll call & speak with Dillon again.
