This was a great place to stay and I would do so again in the future. I do wish there was someone on the property overnight and sooner in the morning along with more parking, but overall it was a lovely stay.

Love that it was a few steps to the beach. I like our room's ocean view and cleanliness. I wished they offered a few pastries for breakfast.
