Great place
Everything was great service wise and cleanliness. The only issue we had was we were given one total price via but it was about $50 more. However, it was affordable still, and we didn’t have to drive to get to the beach. It was central to great restaurants also. We plan to come back soon, and hopefully we will be staying here again.
