I'll be back!

My friend and I cam down to this hotel located on the beach and really enjoyed ourselves. I booked the two queen bed room. But good thing I called an hour before arriving because they told me it was on the first floor Oceanview but for those with pets which I don't have and did not need. So they put me up on the second floor and gave me a $25.00 voucher for breakfast or dinner.

I can't wait to go back to this hotel

I stayed here the first time last summer and enjoyed it so much I had to return last weekend. My stay was a complete success. I used my debit card when I booked it and at check in the hotel only charged a $60.00 holding fee in case I ordered room service or ate meals in their restaurant. Which I did and It was worth it. My room had an ocean view and I noticed it had a full lengh mirror in the bathroom which was a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and told me about the whales they saw the day before. It is located right at the beach and you can hear the waves pounding the shore at night. Very restful. The hotel allowed dogs and I saw a couple with their pet which was a beautiful Great Dane.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

I used the Gym this time but didn't make it to the pool or jacuzzi. I had dinner there and lunch the next day. For dinner try their butternut squash soup. I also had their pasta dish with chicken and sauage and marinara sauce. (And they give you a coupon when you check in for a free glass of house wine)
