    Good value, amazing breakfast with bottomless mimosas. Well trained, courteous staff. Bathrobes were amazingly soft. The location is close to everything, especially the beach, but on a quiet quaint street. The only sounds at night were the ocean.

    We saw folks taking a dip in the morning. The front desk confirmed the pool was kept at 80 degrees. It sounds warm enough but in the Winter it's still cold out. If you're brave enough, I suppose.
