4/5 Good

Convenient location for the dunes. Room was clean and updated. WiFi was weak and it was difficult to get in touch with staff since they are only on site for limited hours. No iron in the room - had to go to front desk to grab it and were told to bring it right back to them. Not very service oriented! Also - window unit for AC was an issue in the rain - very loud and disruptive for sleep.

Location is great but the price is high for the hotel. Rooms were damp feeling even with AC on sheets were wet feeling as were towels. Plus was water pressure in the bathroom and size of bathroom. Pictures on your site did not look like the room we had. But lady at checkin stated it’s our fault for using an online service versus contacting them directly.
