Great location!
The price is right and it's actually a great location. It is walking distance to the local establishments and a quick walk across the street to the beach. They have complimentary beach towels and chairs if you need them. But don't expect much else. The front desk person did not speak good English. My biggest complaint is the walls are very thin so you can hear everything in the rooms next to you and the bed was very hard and uncomfortable.
