  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

The location is excellent. Steps away from a beautiful beach. Not crowded. Very happy we did not upgrade to “ocean view” as there was no view because of the dunes and grass. We heard many unhappy comments from visitors who paid extra for those rooms. The rooms are plain but plenty of room. My disappointment was because of the condition of the room when we arrived. The bathroom floor was not clean. The shower curtain had mold and mildew on the inside up to about 8 inches from the bottom. The tile in the bathroom had mold on the grout. I realize it’s difficult to keep on top of this as it is so humid but this had apparently not been cleaned for awhile. When you are dealing with sand I would think you would have to vacuum. What they use is a broom and that did not work. I asked for a new shower curtain and they brought right away. I am definitely not a hotel snob. I have stayed at hotels / motels that are old and shabby but I do expect them to be clean especially during this COVID time. The TV only has limited channels and reception was bad. The bed was like sleeping on the floor. The complex was quiet while we were there. The location was great for getting to everything. I don’t think I would stay there again unless I brought my own cleaning products.
