    The furnishings and room are still quite dated. I know that the plans are to demolish this old hotel and build a highrise, more upscale and expensive resort that I will not be able to afford to stay in.

    The beach.

    The pictures are a scam. The rooms are not what the pictures show at all. For 350 a night you get a budget hotel room that doesn't even face the water. The rooms do not even have a microwave. With a little research I was able to find a much better room with a full kitchen for 170 a night less than a mile down the road.

    The place needed a great deal of updating. The price charged was not even close to the accommodations. The shower was old and very difficult to work. The walls were thin and the guests above us were very noisy starting at 6am in the morning. Using the shower and dragging something. On the other hand the beach was beautiful.

    Sorry answered above.

    Reminiscent of Florida in the 60’s. We don’t care for all the high rises. This 2 and 3 story property was just what we were looking for. Staff was fantastic! Food was excellent. They offer a shuttle to St Armands which has amazing restaurants.

    The property is in need of some freshening up and repairs. There is talk of tearing it down to build a high rise which would be disappointing.

    Love this place. It’s a little older so not all updated but such a great staff and atmosphere. Awesome location on the beach.

    Love it nothing bad to say
