Just got back from the beach.. Our stay at the Shipwreck was very nice. The room was very clean and Rose the housekeeper did a great job. Everything from the room to the beach to the bay was less than 2 blocks away. The motel is surrrounded by great places to eat and relax all within walking distance.
