Current prices which are the highest of the year run from $99 a night across the street, to $129 for an oceanview room on the beach to $144 for oceanfront. One and two bedroom units on the beach side run from $179 to $229 a night. These units have a fully furnished kitchen and multiple TV sets.
If you are a cash paying guest, you must pay a $20 deposit to activate your phone for local use, and local calls are fifty cents apiece. On the plus side there is a hot tub and indoor pool located at the Sailfish Resort. The Days Inn has an outdoor pool on the ocean side. Irons and ironing boards may be checked out of the Days Inn lobby but require a $10 deposit.
In my opinion none of the three facilities constitute luxury accommodations. I would recommend the two ocean front facilities for those on a budget but not highly.
