Priced too high for what you get. A 1950's room. No microwave, and the window unit was so loud and kept coming on and off all night, sounded like a bomb and we couldn't sleep. Also, you have to do a check list of items...More

The handicapped rooms face East. As you exit the room the ocean would be to your right, On that level there is a small dune in the ocean view. But you are less that 30 yrds from the ocean at high tide.
