INN LAYOUT

The Sandpiper Inn consists of 11 rooms all at ground level. The rooms are all located in one long building. All parking for the inn is located on the street side in front of the building. Parking is limited to one standard size vehicle per room. There is no additional parking available and there is no parking for trailers and any type of oversize vehicle such as RVs etc. Please note that the spaces are not as wide as most spaces are. The spaces are about 8 and 1/2 feet wide, instead of a normal 10 feet.

The building runs lengthwise from the street to the Gulf of Mexico, there is a nicely landscaped area running down the side of the inn. The pool is near the street and parking. The first unit in from the street is the manager's apartment and office. After going through the covered archway the units run from 100 to 108 (108 is end nearest the Gulf). Units 200 and 201 are the Gulf front units at the end of the building facing the Gulf and the beach.
