Bonnie and her daughters do a wonderful job at the Beacon Motel. From the location, breakfast, clean rooms, and the new pool were all wonderful. What a great place. Where else can you BBQ, sit outside and talk with other travelers and enjoy the beach out your back door? It has a lot of charm.

My family rented a double queen room from Beacon Bed and Breakfast. On their website it said $194 a night and a $20 add on charge for a 3rd guest. However, once we arrived we were charged $244 for the night and after tax it was around $270. When we asked about the price difference from the internet to actually... More

I spent 3 nights at the Beacon. They call it Beacon Beachfront Bed & Breakfast, but don't let the name fool you--This is a motel. An old motel. The cute colors on the outside hide issues on the inside. The location is excellent. The property is partially beachfront, but most is blocked by a restaurant/bar that sits between the motel...

our family stays at the Beacon every summer for a week. We rent 4 to 5 rooms. This is perfect for large family gatherings. Everyone gets there space and each day we get together for beach and food and drinks. We never need to cook even though each room has a kitchenette because there are so many places to eat... More

We were dropping off some friends to stay here. Once we arrived, I could not believe how close to the beach and everything else it was. Perfect location and very affordable. Everything is in walking distance! Highly recommend!!!

A great value for a small beach motel. Lotsa sand everywhere so its tough to keep it spotless. The rooms are sufficiently spacious unless you have a large family or plan on spending a lot of time in the room. This was our second stay here and there will be more. The location is outstanding. Park your car once and... More

We stayed at Beacon motel for a week in February and really enjoyed our stay. The location to the beach and all the activities was perfect. Our room was clean and we'll supplied. We found the staff very friendly also. Our stay for next year is already reserved.
