8.2 Great
The location was great, it was really peaceful and nice to be able to walk to the beach from our hotel. Staff was friendly && the liquor store nearby was convieniet. Overall price was great, would stay again

The Wi-fi was inconsistent, wouldn't stay connected to our phones for long, in and out service that kept turning off. There wasn't really that many kid friendly tv shows by the end of the night and midday.

6.5 Okay
Competitive price and great location. Restaurants nearby.

A little dated and very little hot water in bathroom sink.

8.5 Great
We went with another couple. King room with balcony. Awesome stay. Clean, quiet, beach right across hwy...easy access. Would recommend and definately stay again.
9.6 Excellent
Hands down, the best value in the area by far. Makes sense why they have so many positve reviews, great stay all around. Location is great. Restaurant/bar on site. Rooms very clean. Can't be beat at that price.

As many have said before, the only thing that would really help would be AC units in the room. It was 80 when we were there, and the rooms felt stuffy in the afternoon even with windows open.

10.0 Excellent
The bed was like sleeping on a cloud! For $60 AWESOME! !

Nothing everything was good.
