Excelente location a few steps from the beach. Rooms are small. Price for a two bed room could be lower but location compensates for that. Room was ok clean. Floor needed cleaning. Check in easy, friendly. Check out no so much. At 11:15 am a guy knocks on the door to let you know that is time to leave. We thought that was kind of rude. We were already packing ready to leave no need from the front office to remind us of the time.

I arrived at 4pm. My room was charged to my card by the time I had arrived. I had requested to pay cash as an option when reserving the room. I still had to wait 30 mins before I was able to get into the room, as it was being cleaned. I realize that check in was at 3pm but even if I had arrived at 3pm, I still would have waited to get the room until 4:30. But they were so quick to promptly charge my card

You're only a block away from the beach weather is great. The bad part is the current situation that we're in covid 19 quarantine.
