    Nostalgic but so well kept & clean. Beautiful foliage. Awesome swimming pool & surrounding area.. Extremely friendly staff & very economically priced. Centrally located to the pier, ocean, beach, restaurants and shopping.

    I would think so. It's very close to the airport so there should be taxis nearby. I'm certain the front desk can call one for you if you request it.
