Not bad for a last minute $100 room.
For $100, you get what you pay for. We were passing through and needed a last minute hotel. The room was very dated, but clean. There were broken blinds and no curtains, and a light right by the window, so it was very bright in the room all night. The pull out bed had a very worn out mattress, which was super uncomfortable, even for young kids. However, the room was clean and located just across the street from the gulf. The staff was friendly. The area was fun, though it was predominantly young adults. Overall, we can’t complain for a last minute $100 room.

There was huge bugs in the room, and the staff didn’t seem to care. The kitchen smelt like cat piss and the ice machine won’t work half the time. Stay at the sister resort, the bay inn is forgot about
