Very good 8.0
Basic but has all you need
Basic kind of old motel feel,but a bargain for the area. Very well maintained, and has all that you need. Pool, a/c microwave, coffee, fridge, hot plate and utensils. Bring your own food, no place to eat within walking distance, and most stores close before 9pm. The beach is a short walk across the street. Never did see the owner, the office is only open during the day, they leave the keys and a note on your room door.
