Stayed here for one night, street side. Friendly service, good atmosphere, and very comfy beds! For the price, you cant beat the value, rooms are clean, comfortable and ours was very roomy, decor is motel typical and the continental breakfast was a bit sparse, but enough to get you on your way! Will definitely be adding this to our list... More

Really friendly and helpful reception staff. Room was clean and well kitted out. Bbq area at the side of the motel. Beach access through the parking a lot of the crazy golf. Free game of crazy golf for all motel guests. What's not to like?

The motel is really quite adorable. I loved the beach theme. Nice, accommodating staff. Comfortable beds. Delicious homemade muffins at breakfast. Loved getting the voucher for the mini golf right across the street. Great location. Would stay again.

Lovely, friendly, helpful receptionist. Very poor motel. We booked ahead thinking it was a good deal with continental breakfast and free mini golf. Upon arrival we brought our stuff into the noisy (highway), stale smoke & musty smelling room, sat down on the creaky sagging bed. And decided thar no, we were not paying $159/night (for the suite which is... More

This is the lowest priced Motel we founf in Parlsvulle, yet it was clean, comfortable and well run. The managers, John & Janet went out of their way fixing us breakfast and even printing documents we needed from the internet. Well located with good restaurants and laundrymat within steps. We would stay here again.

Our room is clean and small but works for us. Breakfast is simple and sufficient. Late arrival travelers should be aware the front desk does not open 24 hours so late arrival travelers should make arrangement ahead.

Great location, great price, close to everything. The motel is older but is nice and clean, comes with a free game of mini golf. But.......be warned, there is no air conditioning. We went the weekend of August 2 and it was very hot out. We were warned that there was no air, but never expected it to be as uncomfortably... More

The motel was simple, not a lot of frills, but it did have a lot of amenities. A night's stay comes with free mini golf which is a great value, and free continental breakfast with their own home made muffins. There is a coffee machine in the rooms as well as cable TV and good wifi. There is a BBQ... More

Fantastic location! Walking distance to restaurants, beach and stores. The motel has a kids paradise next door. The experience is one of a kind for the family. We will definitely be coming back. Owners are welcoming and kind. We were very surprised how quiet the motel was.
