It's a bargain by the water. Easy walk to one beach bar/restaurant (which was OK). You need to drive to get to anything else. Rooms were old...but reasonably clean and well equipped. Owner (Anand) was very helpful. A few sketchy characters were staying here... but they were harmless. Great views. Would be a great place to hide out. Flat Screen... More

If you're tired of cookie cutter hotels and don't mind going basic this is a terrific place. We stayed four days and were sorry to go. The owners went out of their way for us, the other people staying there were friendly and there is nothing like making coffee (we bring our own because we're picky) and then going out... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this little motel. Not fancy but very clean also it feels tropical at the pool and on the grounds, with tons of tropical plants and a beautiful and warm salt water pool. The place is small so you get a chance to talk to the others staying. They offer a long pier... More

Found motel online and booked for proximity to family and good price. Didn't know what to expect, but wasn't planning on spending a lot of time in room so wasn't worried. What a wonderful surprise ! The place is very cute and cozy. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Our small dog was welcome. The people were very very friendly... More

Did we have a great time? YES Did we have a few issues? YES The pool was perfect, very clean and well maintained as were the outside areas of all of the buildings. The staff very nice and prompt. Think this a Mom/Son operation, funny to see them work to get their way. We had a few ants on the... More
