Location was 👍. Phone was not working correctly. The toilet itself was very flimsy. I was charged parking fees for 2 days. It took 2 phone calls to have them removed.

The grounds were beautiful. The staff were all helpful and efficient. The front desk staff went above and beyond to help me when my rental car was stolen. Close to everything.

The property was in a great location. A short drive to the beach and had a great little bay side restraunt across the street. The hotel itself is a little older but the staff was great. I did pay for a room with a view and was dissapointed to find that the view was blocked by large palmtrees and bushes. But behind them was a view of the marina. Would have been nice to see the marina from the room. The property is good for walking, you can see the marina up close and walk to the side that has the open bay. Very relaxing.
