About 20 minutes from the beach, our hotel is the perfect overnight retreat for heading to the beach, camping, fishing, bird watching, rodeos, and lots of out door fun for the entire family. After a day of adventure, head back to the hotel where you can pump it up in the on-site fitness center, refresh in the sparkling outdoor pool and whirlpool. Standard amenities in our comfortably spacious guest rooms include refrigerator, microwave oven, big 32-inch TV, and free high-speed Internet access, just to name a few. Enjoy a Free Bright Side BreakfastTM each morning in our lobby area where you also find a free newspaper.
