Truly a place of refuge and safety - a sanctuary for your mind, body, and spirit. A special place to celebrate or relax and unwind.

Way Overpriced. The rooms are very dated, the couch, carpet needs to be cleaned, the restroom lacks privacy. For the price you pay, you expect way better rooms. I would give it 5 stars if the rooms were $ 100 per night. It's a very nice Motel not a 4 stars resort... At $ 600 per night on a week day, it's a rip off.

The location is worth the stay. The beach is beautiful with a minimum of people it feels like you are all by yourself. We saw whales, seals and dolphins all while walking in the beach. The hotel service is not the best, the on-site restaurant is average plus. Don’t stay here for the hotel, stay for the location.

We had a wonderful two night stay in the hotel. It is located in a quiet area, right on the long and widespread Marina state beach. The sunset scenery was breathtaking. The junior suite we had was clean and spacious. Morning free yoga class on the beach was soothing and relaxing. In this pandemic time, the breakfast was room service only, dinners could be outdoor dinning or room service. Did not quite like the foods in either the breakfast or the dinner - felt like the food in the airplane. For that I did not rate the experience at “excellent”.

The location and view was great / stunning! However, the room was not clean, stains all over carpet, mold in the shower etc. Food from the restaurant/ room service was terrible. We did not even eat our $129.00 dinner.
