Pam, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We do have our resort fee listed on our website and all third-party booking sites. The resort fee covers the breakfast, W-Fi, parking and the ability to use the amenities at any BTSR property. We do apologize for the lack of info on the beach chair rentals. We just recently started renting the beach chairs ourselves (it used to be a third-party), which is why you did not see advertising about it. We will use your feedback on the furniture and breakfast internally.

We had an ocean view room, rooms were very large. The only downfall was that we had to Park in the overflow parking lot across the street and it wasn’t very well lighted so I wasn’t sure it was in a safe spot but there were no issues. We would stay here again.

When looking for hotel discounts I do three things. 1) Contact the hotel direct 2) check the internet like Trip Advisor 3) Book a package trip when purchasing your airlines tickets.
