    Location was perfection! Beach within spitting distance - Sunrise and Sunset off the chain! Friendly staff, high quality coffee in the lobby. So fun to borrow albums and play them on the turntable in my room. Can’t wait to come back to this newly...

    Close to restaurants, ocean,, etc. Loved the old-fashioned character of the place. The room had an original tiled fireplace which had been converted to gas, beautiful pedestal sink, charm!
