Great place! Biggest drawback is that the walls are noticeably thin, so I'm grateful we had respectful neighbors that were as quiet and went to sleep as early as we did. It's a very short drive to the beach, but I'm not sure if I would have bothered to try walking it along Hwy 361.
However the concerns are absolutely outweighed by the actual experience of staying here. The staff is so friendly and incredibly welcoming. They were very helpful, so much so I'm sure if there had been an issue with neighbors making noise they would have addressed it quickly. The beds were very comfortable, lots of pillows, soft sheets. Driving to/from the beach is very easy and quick. The complimentary breakfast was a nice extra to help add value to the price per night as well.
For two friends who wanted to enjoy some sun and sand this hotel suited us perfectly. I would fully recommend this place to anyone who doesn't insist on beachfront views or insist on full privacy from neighbors.
