    Stay away from this place!
    There was a leak under the bathroom sink. Bathroom smelled like mold. There were stains on the table in the room. I was expecting more with the price I paid per night. Disappointed!!! Will not come back.

    Nice place to stay. Loved being on the beach and close to the shops and pier! The bed and pillows were so amazing and comfortable. Wish we could have had a beach front view instead of the parking lot. A little pricey for that. Overall very nice
