Stayed here in July for 3 nights for a weekend wedding. The location is great. We chose this location due to the excellent reviews. Unfortunately, we were VERY disappointed. We booked a non-ocean front room, which we later learned meant a lot of other down-grades as well. We were placed in the green roofed building, which is separate from the building where you check in with the red roof. Most of the promotional pictures use the building with the red roof, which is nicer. When we walked in to our room, the first thing we were greeted by was the smoke alarm having been ripped out of the wall. The TV mounted on the wall was nice and new, but had obviously not been cleaned because it looked like someone had wiped a greasy hand all over the screen. The bathtub had mold in it. There was hair in the tub prior to using it. We also found a popsicle stick on the floor near the trash can. The bed was not uncomfortable as far as firmness, but the sheets were very scratchy. As a matter of fact, we had to purchase sheets from a local store the next day because it was so bad. We also discovered sand-burs in some of our "freshly laundered" bath towels, which was very concerning. On a more minor note, there was no slider lock or deadbolt on our door; only the push lock within the handle. I would have felt more comfortable with the additional lock, which is standard at nearly all other establishments. Sadly, I would never recommend this place to anyone, nor will I ever stay there again.
