Everything seemed fine at check in but it all started going down hill as soon as our family found our room. The listing said the room was ocean front NOT ocean view, when standing on the balcony only about 25% of the view was ocean! Oh and while we were looking at the little bit of ocean we could see my three year old grabbed onto the railings and could fit his ENTIRE HEAD through the slots of the railings making the balcony unuseable for the whole trip!! The room itself was average which is fine but then we started to settle in and noticed piles of cords between the bed and night stand, extension cords plugged into extension cords, making it yet another hazard. So we went down to the beach, the water was a little colder than we liked so we went to the motels pool, where we found that it had no shallow end for our little one. It was getting close to nap so we headed to the lobby for some refreshments, the guy at the front desk offered to put it on our room tab, we gave him our room number and he said thanks have a good night, without even confirming we had given him the correct number. Back in our room I was ready to was the day away and the shower was probably the worse part of the whole stay... Right at my eye level there is a window in the shower covered in at least a dozen dead black bugs!!!
I liked how close we were to the beach and not that bad for the price.
I wish it was a better view and that our room was the way we asked. We asked for one bed on a high floor and they gave us two beds. When we spoke to the staff they said they could "upgrade" us to a king bed on a lower floor but "it would be best if we stayed where we are for the better view." Not the best for our first trip away.
