This hotel is a hidden treasure. I kind of hate to let others know about it - I want to come back!. It is a little off the beaten path in a quiet residential area that is easy walking distance from entertainment, lots of restaurants and bars, neat specialty shops and best of

Dear Roadwimp, Thank you for your kind words and taking the time out of your busy schedule to provide us with your feedback! We absolutely love your survey & the positive words! Just think us as a beautiful diamond that you want to tell all your family & friends about us! Yes the pool isn't the best layout and in a great location but that was already designed that way when we took over the property. The ocean view rooms are very lovely as the sun is setting to enjoy a great view of the calming ocean! The restaurant does have a beautiful view We would definitely like to have you back to stay with us! I am thrilled to hear that you found our beautiful waterfront property meet and exceed all of your expectations as well as the suite you stayed in! It is our upmost honor to have had you stay with us, and we would be delighted to have you back anytime! Thank you once again!

What are the beds like? I have a bad back and need a supportive non sagging mattress.
I like firm mattresses for the same reason you do, as well since I am disabled. The beds here were just fine.
