Staff is friendly. Stayed here twice for my birthday and sprung for the beach view - it's worth it: fresh air, good balcony for 2, wonderful light. The room itself is below average. Sheets were clean, towels are thin and not very soft. No decor. We only had maybe 2 unused outlets, so we had to unplug the microwave to... More

This motel has a pancake restaurant on location therefore they do not provide a free breakfast. They will give you a free coffee at the restaurant. When you pay for this motel you are paying for the beautiful beach location. This motel is not as new or as updated as most BW I have stayed in.

Let's just say Michelle is the best. We had complications checking in because of he website we had used to book the room. But Michelle made sure to take really good care of us. Definitely went out of her way. Throughout our trip she made sure we were okay, suggested great places. The hotel was perfect, we were walking distance... More

This was a great place to stay. Room was very clean, and comfortable and the view of the beach was fantastic. The pool needed a pick me up, but who needs a pool when you can walk out the back door directly onto the beach. Parking was great, but it's an easy walk to other attractions including "The Hangout" and... More

You can't get any closer to the beach than this! The rooms are clean and have beautiful views of the ocean from their the balconies. There is a Waffle House within walking distance and a pancake house inside the hotel. The beach is clean and has wide stretches of beautiful white sugar sand. You can collect shells or play in...

Wonderful location and very friendly staff. Everything about of stay was wonderful, relaxing, and enjoyable. Room was clean and beds were very comfortable. The beach was just steps away from the elevator and the breeze way under the hotel was especially nice to sit and enjoy with the little ones. We will definitely be back. Special thanks to Stephanie at... More

I made 3 phone calls within 2 days prior to our arrival. They could not find our reservation. Turns out someone left one letter out of our name and it was only through a long search did they match up ALL other available info. The hotel is no frills but I do like the ocean view. We brought our own... More

The staff was nice, the location is perfect, however the price does not fit the product. It was not a good value. I would much rather have paid much less to stay here. Not a good value. The rooms are fairly small, so if your taking a family, I wouldn't recommend.
