The property was close to the beach and staff was very accommodating; however, on the flip side, the cottage was old and needed some updates. The guests next and upon the cottage sound like they were in our cottage. The walls were paper thin.

Hi Barbara, Thank you very much for staying with us and reviewing. It's great to hear that our staff treated you well. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again for your next beach vacation. We also have 3 oceanfront buildings if those accommodations would be a better fit for your next stay.

My family and I spent the labor day weekend at this hotel and what we truly enjoyed was the ocean view room, private balcony and the pool. My kids would spend the whole day in the pool if we let them😄. The hotel need some renovation.
