Another great bike week in the history book. Chris was great as always, greeting you with a smile and asking how you and your family have been and catching up with how the rest of the regular guest have been. Chris stops to chat and to make sure everything is up to your expectations. Friendly staff and security, I'll be... More

I rated it very good because for us this place was deserving more than average, but perhaps very good is a little over rated. I would say it was GOOD. We were looking for an affordable place to stay for bike week. Room was just ok for us, but we were pleasantly surprised how big the room was, and it... More

This is a nice quaint motel close to the beach on 18th Street. It was clean, quiet, and the staff was very friendly. There was a stove, microwave and a fridge along with a flat screen TV and WiFi. It was at the far end of the boardwalk but if you don't mind walking or taking the shuttle you will... More

This motel is our favorite place to stay in OC because the price is great, location is perfect, and it is well maintained. The rooms are very nice and the maid service is great. It is a family owned motel and they do a great job! They don't put up with any crap so you can rely on having a... More

The location was great, perfect location near the boardwalk, right in the middle of everything. The room was nice, a good size and clean! I recommend this motel to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay. We didn't have any issues with anything at all.

For a young couple that needs a cheap place to stay, this was perfect. It was very clean; the maids did an excellent job. The only thing we did not like was when we asked for a box of tissues, the owner of the motel said "Nahhhhhhhh." So bring your own tissues...haha. However we really enjoyed our stay, the location...

If you're looking to have a vacation with some privacy I wouldn't go here. We caught the security guard peeking through our windows and going in our rooms. You are being watched 24/7 and cannot go anywhere without being questioned. If you take a bag out of the room the security guard will check your bag. If you are under... More
