This place was beautiful! I stayed in the nautilus building, Bay side. It was very clean and the staff was very kind. It was amazing being able to walk down my hotel stairs and step onto the beach!! The beach in front of the hotel is for beach guests only, so it doesn't get crazy packed! We stayed 6 nights, and my only "complaint" I would say is that they only provide you 2 rolls of toilet paper and 1 roll of paper towel no matter how many days you stay. Not a huge deal, but I feel that for the price, they should add on a roll every 3 nights you stay. They did exchange my towels when I called and asked, which was nice. There was a stove, a full fridge/freezer, dishwasher, cookware and plates/bowls/silverware. The air conditioning worked beautifully! We were very comfortable our whole stay! There is a laundry room in 2 of the buildings. $1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry. They have single packs of laundry soap for sale in the office. They have kayaks and huge surf boards to rent, for free, while you stay. There are beach chairs and umbrellas as well. We found so many shark teeth! Shelling isn't the greatest here though. We seen dolphins on the beach side and the Bay side! It was awesome! There's a Circle K on the island that has necessities. A McDonald's right before the bridge to get on the island, and a Walmart about 8 miles away. We are very happy with our stay, and will be booking again for next year!! Thank you to all the staff for such a great experience! ☺️

Had a efficiency unit with a balcony overlooking the Gulf. Across the patio to the seawall and your on the (Private) beach. Floors were ceramic tile which helps with sweeping up sand. The room was clean when we arrived, no sand anywhere which is a testament to housekeeping. Staff was very friendly. We were a little skeptical before we arrived, the location, price and amenities seemed to good to be true, reality was better! Small kitchen with dishes and pans made eating with food allergies simple, the Dollar Tree and Publix are just a couple of miles away. Found we had overpacked, brought a beach tent and wagon that we never used our room was that close. Sunrise and sunsets on the balcony, looking for shells and shark teeth on the beach, hiking in Stump Pass park to view turtle and bird nesting sites and playing in the Gulf. There isn't daily room service, it was truly Our space, we didn't worry about securing all belongings when going out. Felt like home. Looking to be pampered, this isn't the place, looking for a great place to relax without having to go far, this has everything you need. Everyone was friendly during our stay, you get to meet the people around you. Parking is assigned and we had no issues when the state park was full. Could not have asked for a better experience! Will definitely return! New favorite vacation spot!
