I loved that we were right on the water, we sat outside as long as we could and enjoyed it. They need to cover up the cinder block wall, a bit of money spent would make this room fantastic!

Staffing issues seem to be the common theme whilst travelling during Covid.The restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays hence we had to go elsewhere for meals. The room was clean and comfortable but small.The first night i could hear music being played for most of the night from another room. The price was high as well coming in at 225 per night. John the front deck guy was awesome!
