    Can't say enough about this place. Checking in feels like coming home. Everyone is friendly, and the rooms are great. The beach is still recovering from Matthew, but it was still wonderful to sit and watch the sun come up in the morning!

    Second floor rooms have balconies. Ocean side looks across the street to the beach. Noise from vehicle traffic. Backside has nice sunsets. And is quieter
