10/10 Exceptional

Our beach getaway for all seasons
Location was perfect to get to town or the beach. The hotel has an outdoor pool and exercise room plus you can walk to miniature golf or The Boathouse bar and restaurant, CVS, Walgreens and additional restaurants across the highway. Daily breakfast is included and round the clock coffee and tea is available. Staff is friendly and the room was comfy and clean. We will return!!

Small hitch to start, but smooth sailing after...
We had a great stay. The facility and staff were very good. A little mishap at check-in. We were informed that there was a $25/night parking fee. I researched quite a bit before booking our stay. I did not catch this fee in advance. When we went to our "checked in" room, it was already occupied. While correcting the mistake, I was informed that they would be taking the parking fee off of our bill. I think that is the way that customer service is supposed to be.
