Prior to our stay we received an e-mail from the owner asking for our arrival time. The owner was trying to have our room available before we got there. We were staying here only 1 night prior to leaving on a cruise. My friends had come earlier than we did and got to enjoy the area longer. We arrived early... More

Just steps away from the beach. Rooms have been recently updated but retain a "beach kitsch" vibe. Can be a bit damp but what do you expect being so close to the ocean? Full kitchen and outdoor grills on site. Beds are very firm!

What a blast from the past. I always like to support the local small businesses. This is a true gem. We hope to go back this summer and spend a week. Make sure you check them out before you book a large hotel. The location of "right on the beach" will make us go back.

I am sat here writing this looking at rolling waves at sunrise over a deserted beach - a great location. It is a 15/20 minutes walk to the restaurants and bars on the Broadwalk but the beach outside makes this a good place where people fishing and pelicans all add to the ambiance.
