Wood fire with seating very nice. Full moon gave an awesome view at night.
Older but adequate.
Location, Fire Pits, & price
Out dated, unfriendly staff, dirty towels, very thin walls.
We liked that the property was close to the ocean and we had use of the fire pits.
There was no attendant in the office so we had to go next door. There was food in our fridge,old coffee in the coffee pot and the tub was broke. This made me question the integrity of the entire room. There was no way to change rooms cause no one was there. When I complained they were only going to give me a 40 dollar credit, but they charged my account instead and had to be refunded both.
Easy to find. Pet friendly. Able to park car in front of door.
Beds uncomfortable. Shower too small. No ocean view
Everything was great. The weather was perfect. Interacting with other guests made it extra nice
It was exceptional stay, no issues
