    I really enjoyed this hotel, they had a cute little restaurant with board games, 2 decks with fire pits, fun things available like bikes, and the beach front room I had was amazing. It was so relaxing to sit on our patio and look out at the water. Also, they had s’mores kits for sale which was super fun.

    We had two rooms. The first seemed fine but the other one had food left from the last guest in the drawers between the beds, and it smelled terrible. They gave us a new room. Then just as I was getting ready for bed, I saw an ant in the bathroom. I know there is never just one ant. Went to my bed to find ants all over the white comforter. Called the front desk and was given new rooms on the highest floor. After a thorough check of both rooms, no ants were on the third floor. The beds were super cozy and I was able to sleep well. Check your beds!! Otherwise the hotel was great.
