This is a clean 1950s style hotel right on the ocean. All rooms face the ocean. Where will you get that for this price? There are new caretakers who are taking on a maintenance backlog so don't expect anything fancy..The breakfast is good.

There were toys and gear people had left. I don't recall any boogie boards though. There is a Walmart a short trip away. We did not use the wifi but heard it was best near the office.
