I have been there a couple of times a few years ago when our son was in flight school.. It is a high category because it's on the beach, but could really use an upgrade of the property. It's really in the category 4-5 if in another location. Perhaps they have re-done the inside. It is privately run as well, but uses the Marriott name. the beach is nice, but on a slant so when you walk the beach,your feet are at different levels.
