Depending on your perspective, you'll either find it quaint or out-dated that you get a real brass key for your room. You may or may-not like the 80's inspired florescent blue color scheme. Chances are you'll find the rooms somewhat spartan and with old, out-dated carpet & paint. Our refrigerator was dented, very likely from rowdy teens on spring break... More

It's a old hotel, I think it is one of the first hotels on the beach. The rooms were not too bad, but the sheet were very thin. Had a beautiful view of the beach. I feel like it would be a better place if the would just update it a little.

The room was clean and had an awesome view of the beach from our room, and had beach front access. This was perfect for us because we have small children and allowed us to go back to the room for nap time. Also loved the Tiki Bar located by the pool.

We could not have chose a better room with a view. Not fancy upscale hotel, but clean, perfect location, loved being on the boardwalk and steps away from the beach. Price was right too. We are planning to visit again soon.
