If you looking for a clean room with a small kitchenette this is the place. Manager is wonderful. It will not kill your pocket book either. The pool is clean. This is real close to all the beaches you came down here to enjoy.

Great place. They have small kitchens. No stove. But who cares. Karl and staff are great. Plus they take dogs and cats. Clean rooms.. Next to the bridge and airport. Easy in easy out. Next to a small place to eat called Salty Dog

When we stayed last year it was $99.00 a night before tax. There is also a Ramada on 41 that is reasonable.
