There aren't many options in Garden City so keep that in mind. We stayed in the motel section, which is their cheaper rooms but they were the closest to the beach. So, if I came again, which we won't, we'd stay in the motel rooms again. They charge you $25 if you don't empty your own rubbish bins. So, if you put toothpaste or a tissue on the trash, you better go empty it yourself or you'll be fined $25!! They have really strict rules and aren't very friendly. The check-in isn't until 4pm and the checkout is 10am...very ridiculous! The beach is rocky and there's virtually nothing to eat around unless you like cheap, fried burgers and hot dogs. I hear the northern beach in Idaho is better, but we didn't stay long enough to explore.
