The hotel was in a great location and was comfortable enough. I didn't realize there was no air conditioning when I booked it so that was my own fault. It is a pet friendly hotel so that was great for us as we had our puppy with us. The wifi was extremely slow and breakfast wasn't until 8am and we... More

This place was great and the owner was very nice and accommodating. We stayed last year and I've booked to stay again this year. I would definitely recommend it. It was clean and quiet and in an excellent location. I also loved getting passes to the mini golf.

Friendly and helpful staff. Comfy beds. We were on the front of the building and it was close to the street so definitely not a quiet place. Good coffee in the continental breakfast. Fabulous beach and the mini gold is a Fun thing......very popular but not bad waits

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.
