Very old and not updated. Our room had no soap and the shower was clogged. I realize you pay extra for the "on the beach" experience, but I would not stay here again.

Was freezing at night. The power went out and the wall heater was the only source of heat.

Staff in the lobby were super friendly at check-in/out. Property is beautifully positioned, & the design of the building seems to give every room a piece of the amazing view. It could really be a very special place. Our room needed some serious maintenance. Paint peeling, mildew on the window frames, tired furniture. It did seem to be clean (except for those window frames). It was quite noisy, both because the single-pane windows let in a lot of road noise (we were at the end of the building furthest from the road) & because the refrigerator runs very loud (we eventually unplugged it). Tall people beware of banging your head in the shower, & good luck getting your head under the showerhead. You can't access the beach here, but they do have some chairs set up on the bluff, which was really nice for viewing the beautiful sunset. There are also a couple of firepits with adirondack chairs.
