JY422 - John Yancey Oceanfront Inn Penthouse Suite

The remodel was well done and was a pleasant surprise. The negative side to the remodel was the removal of the units water and dryer. This was a disappointment since we had to use the only two washers for the entire hotel The bathroom remodel was also a nice update but the remodel took away valuable counter space We definitely appreciated the upgraded A/C unit and ceiling fan in the bedroom
