    Very clean. We stayed for Track and Field States which was only 10 mins away, almost 3 miles away. Great little resturant across the street for dinner and breakfast. We had a fridge and lil stove. Front desk was very friendly.

    Hi Lori, We do have a tiki bar by the pool and beaches are 15-20 minutes. Unfortunately, we no longer allow pets in our rooms. That being said they are welcome at the tiki bar. Sincerely, Jim Gill
