We stayed in an oceanfront cottage. Absolutely stunning views. Room service is limited so we did Ubereats several times. We needed water and ice and it took several requests and over 45 min to arrive. We also had a long wait for golf cart to take us to our car when checking out. It was raining so ...

The location was nice, a few steps from the bluffs overlooking the ocean, plenty of choices for food near by. Ceiling fan in room is a plus. We happened to be there during a large rain and wind storm, so it was just timing and there were things we couldn't do at the facility because of that, meaning ...

The fridge was a good size and very clean with a freezer section. The TV monitors are bigger than other places we've stayed at in the area with more ...

For a two star property this place was a real gem at an incredible price. Sure it is an older construction with thinner walls but the property was maintained, the rooms weren't cramped and most importantly the mattress and pillows were good quality. I got a good night's sleep at a great price for ...
