Just came home today. When I checked in my room smelled of old, rotten mildew and of something foul and dead. I asked if I could please change my room and was told they were full. My sister who came with me called and acted like a new customer and was told they had vacancies and immediately attempted to book... More

This motel was very clean, bright and cheery. Traveled with husband, 2 kids and 2 large dogs. It is definitely one of the most affordable places to stay in the area, is pet friendly and walking distance to the beach, about 4 blocks away. However, for a family with young children and a lot of beach equipment, it is probably... More

I stayed here august 4th, 5th & checked out on the 6th. The room was CLEAN and smelled fresh. The beds were very comfortable. Shower pressure is great. The beach is one red light down & across the highway, then one block in front of you! We had fresh, clean towels hanging on our door each morning. We went out... More

You get what you pay for. After one night at this motel - I would rather sleep in my car. Our first room smelled like cat piss and still had the previous occupants wet clothes in it However, the front desk staff was nice enough to move us to a different room. The new room smelled clean but probably wasn't.... More

We were going to the beach for the 4th - we called Sea Esta IV and specifically asked if they had a pool and how close to the beach they were. We were told yes there was a pool and that they were 900 yards, 1 city block from the beach. Imagine our surprise when we drove up and the... More

Unfortunately it does take a bit of time to get all websites to update. We are currently under new ownership and they made the... More

I was extremely disappointed the minute we walked into the room it was tiny but that would'nt normally bother me for the price we paid, it was also old out dated and smelled like mold/mildew and that did bother me w/having my 9 month and 3yr old w/us. I was told there were "no refunds" so we would "rough it"... More

I would like to apologize about your recent stay with us. We are currently under new ownership and they have made the decision to keep the pool closed due to the new ADA requirements by the Federal Government. While I can tell you about the wonderful improvements we will be making soon that will not express that I am sorry... More

My wife and I just returned from a week at the beach. We booked a night at the Sea Esta IV last minute because we wanted to stay an extra day. The motel is just that, a motel. Nothing special. The beds are not very comfortable and the linens really could be replaced. Even though the rooms are non-smoking, it... More
