    Reserved first floor, only had second floor upon arrival. Sink drain and tub drain were plugged. Wood stairs and second floor deck were spongy as if the wood was rotted. However, conveniently located near water and dunes.

    No pets allowed. My sister has stayed in nearby Glen Arbor and there is a hotel there that allows pets. Sorry I don't know the name of it.

    The rooms are small but clean. There are only double beds here. If you're booking in the greater TC area you'd better book soon.
