This property was very pet friendly with a great pet area and everything needed to clean up after your pet was provided. I wish they had a pool

Place is an absolute gem. Hot tub and ocean views are a plus. Walking distance to gas stations, restaurant and local groceries markets.

10/10 Exceptional

Quaint little property. A storm was happening during our chilly weekend visit, but the fireplace and wall heater provided a lot of heat fast. Other than during the windy rain storm one night (wind blowing on the metal chimney) the room was very pleasant and quiet. Had an upfront big window view of the ocean across the street. Nice continental breakfast too! For the minimal cost for a unit right at the beach .... VERY worthwhile. The quality and cleanliness was extremely important, as well as, the microwave and refrigerator!! Loved it!

2/10 Poor

Rm 117 should be a discount room not a premium room. I booked a room with Ocean View, only view was of the parking lot. There's a water system on the other side ofthe wall. You can hear when anybody in that building uses water and it kicks on. I could tell you every time somebody went to the bathroom the two nights I stayed there.
