I liked the location and the rooms were nice. The staff seemed to totally ignore everyone while they were on the phone. Their customer service could use work.

I like how close we were to the ocean and how clean the beach was while there, however what was disappointing our room needed painting, the hard wood floors were starting to come up, and the Mimi fringe was leaking water onto the floor. We drove over 150 miles to get there but they wouldn't let you check in one hour earlier, if so cost was 65.00 to check in an hour earlier, also the parking lot was crowed even though there were vehicles parked in our parking lot with no blue ticket in the window to show they were guest there, Checking in was extremely long wait since people were standing in long line due to check-in time. other than that no gym available guest due to covid-19 a lot of things were different then what I'm use too for the price you pay.

The property is run down. We had to lift and fix the toilet lid every time we used it. We called the front desk, but no one came to fix it. The room was clean .
