Sparkling Clean, Million Dollar Views
Very clean. Amazing views. Efficient check-in and adequate service. Don't use the elevator- it's sketchy. I took the stairs.

Beautiful location, excellent service, no WiFi in room. Needed to check in with work and had to go to lobby to get service.

Great Beach Getaway
LOVE the Dream Inn. While it was only an overnight, we took full advantage of our time there by enjoying the ocean-front lounge chairs at the pool. Amazing!
