There were some good and bad reviews of this place but we still took our chances on going. I was pleasantly surprised and so happy we did. It is a cute motel that is ready to be demolished to build a bigger hotel which is a shame because this place has character. My favourite part of our stay was staying out late on the balcony listening to the music across the bay. It was so relaxing. The only thing we didn't like was that the staff wasn't available when we arrived later and when we went to leave early in the am we had to go next door to give and drop off keys. It was just a small walk so no biggie but other than that our stay was perfect.
Stayed at this property many times over the years and loved it. It is our understanding that this property is permanently closed due to hurricane damage. It was going to be torn down for new construction. For the past years reservations were made on short term basis contingent that the new construction was to be delayed. We will miss our stays here. Liked the property. More importantly enjoyed the company of other guests.
