I was pretty happy with it. I brought my work down for a quick get away. The wifi worked great so I could get work done. It was nice and quiet. The place was clean and the bed comfortable. It's not too far from the pleasure pier and all the restaurants and bars around it. There's a nice long stretch of beach for those who fancy a beach run. I feel I got a great bargain here.

Great beach spot.

This was an awesome location and we felt secure there. It is right on the beach with some nice amenities. The staff was really great and had some very good recommendations. The beach had hardly anyone on it. But I have to say, the room had cockroaches. This wasn't a full on infestation but there were more than a couple. I'm guessing that they are likely hard to keep out of places on the water and in that climate so it is what it is.
