8.0 Very good
This place used to be special. They still have great location and rooms. Nice pool and hot tub. They used to have the added touches of an amazing breakfast included and cookies at night, but now no breakfast or cookies. I would say that it is now "nice" and good location for a descent price, but likely will no longer be our "must stay at" place and will look around at other options, there are many in the area.

8.0 Very good
Good location near the sea, though on a bluff. Great staff, super friendly and accomodating.
J
6.0 Okay
The staff were great. Seemed like they were low on staff. Breakfast was barebones. Outside Fireplaces were great for sitting and making s’mores. Inside fireplace was great for heat and drying clothes. Safe for kids. Property due for a remodel. No air conditioning in room. That was a big minus. The fans in the room were not enough.
