The pool is nice and available year round but we heard the water was a little chilly now.The Windjammer has wonderful shrimp tacos and burgers. The adult... More

I just spent Friday evening through breakfast Sunday at the inn, my first time staying in 15 years.

My room had chips missing from the shower surround, the mattress was thin and uncomfortable and there were spider webs all over the patio area.
