Fodor's Review

This resort is a blast from the past. The retro motel has shuffleboard courts and a self-serve tiki bar. The paint is chipping on some of the widely spaced buildings, but the room decor looks modern with a few vintage touches. Of the selection of rooms and suites, Room 20 offers the best digs, with a bay view that goes on forever. We're told the Wright Brothers stayed in Unit 29—and who's to argue? The fish stories come fast and furious here. Many folks bring their boats

and stay two or three weeks at a time. If all this sounds eccentrically charming to you, you'll have a grand old time here.
