This motel is more like efficiency apartments. My bed was so comfy and the room was spotless clean with a strong scent of bleach. There is no phone, no ice machine and no free packs of coffee for the in room coffee makers. The store is walking distance away to buy your ice and coffee. The management has you take... More

My husband and I stayed here Valentine's weekend and we brought our two dogs with us. We had a really nice stay. The rooms were very clean and the dogs were very welcome. They were even allowed to sit with us at the pool bar while we enjoyed cocktails with Michelle and Tom, the managers. The first night that we... More

Horrendous experience, Booked from information on their web site, place was horrible, dirty, noisey, poor air conditioner, out dated bedding and furniture. Looked like any decent wind would blow the siding off the place. Staff was non attentive. Did have entertainment watching spring breakers jumping off second floor balcony into the small pool. The only positive aspect was this dump... More

Never again! The place is run down and almost everything has to be reparerad in some way! No cleaning no service at all. The pricing was as a luxurie hotel but that was only luxurie thing! I think they have close this place and do something else! Close to beach, thats all!

Booked site unseen and that was a mistake. Close to beach is the only positive thing. The place is falling apart, not kept up, everything in it is old and outdatrd and the managers are not helpful at all. They charge like it is a great place but it is a dump. If you want clean towels or sheets, you... More

The picture of the room was not this motel. Reading the reviews makes me think real people did not actually stay here; they... More
