Backyard bonus
Backyard is very clean and welcoming. After staying at some more uninviting and unclean spots, this was appreciated! The rooms are spacious and cool. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend a stop over here!

Backyard Hotel

Very good 8,0
Not for older couples.
Staff was great and very helpful. Music from the attached Bar and Restaurant Saturday night was very loud. It ended around 10PM but the bar patrons where hooping it up until closing. If you are looking for a quiet restful place during the evening this is not the place. If you are young and out there with everyone else in the Bar this place is perfect. Beautiful view and grounds.

This hotel is amazing. We loved it, and their restaurant next door. It is Ocean front with a little patio, and the pool is by the ocean too. We will stay there when we go back in December.
