    Clean but lacking

    Very nice hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Very noisy. Heard all street noise . No place to hang towels in the bathroom or any where in the room. Extra towels are right above toilet so you have to be careful when you go to get one because the is no lid on the toilet.

    Meh!

    An old property with outdated design by today's standards. No conveniences provided, such as no coffee in room, no in house restaurant apart from tacky Tiki Bar on beach. Touted as a resort property, but facilities minimal and limited. Selected because of price and proximity to Park Pier, but in hindsight, paying a little more for better property would have been more beneficial for a more enjoyable stay.

    Beach was great even though we couldn't really use it because of the storm. Friendly desk people. Room was old but clean and great location to beach. Would stay here again.

    A Quiet Gem

    If you were looking for a high paced fun filled resort for you, one large it’s not that. If you were looking for back in town that is quiet, comfortable, clean and filled with lots of smiling people that has an awesome location, book with Driftwood or Osprey. We had the beach view cabana room. It had a smell that is common for beachfront, but we were directly on the beach. (See pic.) We highly recommend this place.

    Loved that we could step out or door and be on the beach! Great location within a short walk of the pier, and great restaurants.
