    Hello, no they don't but they are only a block away from the beach and they give you beach chairs and towels. It is a lovely, quiet hotel.

    I think I recall there being a safe in the room inside of the closet but am not positive so I would call/email the management to verify. We did really enjoy our stay there and will go back in the future.
