My family of 4 took a mini vacation before my kids went back to school. The Sahara Motel was very clean, right on the boardwalk with a balcony to view the ocean. The price was reasonable for a oceanfront room. There were a few issues like the bathroom was very small, beds were not the most comfortable and no hotel... More

Very god value for location. It's less than one minute walk from the beach. Rooms aren't loaded with amenities, but the price is reasonable. 500 for thurs, fri, sat. And it was worth the price. Second time stating there and would definitely stay there again. The only negative is the comforters feel really gross the material is awful!

My family of 4 stayed here 8/5-8/6. It was a last minute trip/change of plans as were were supposed to go to OC the 7th - 8th, but a death in the family changed our plans. So we headed to the beach with no particular plan or hotel booked. Upon our arrival we just drove up the street stopping at... More

This is our third year staying here. We really like the location, on the quiet end of the boardwalk. The rooms are standard, but I do like having the fridge, microwave and hair dryer in the room. Like that they have two pools, and a nice cafe on the property. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly.

We stayed at the Sahara for 6 days in the Tower building. Everyone was super friendly. The room was clean, and the shower actually had great water pressure for once. It was a standard no frills type of room., but we always go back to Sahara and have never had a bad experience.

Our first room had water damaged on door and mold on wall. Also hair on tub and in the mini refrigerator. We complained about the water damage and got another room. Our second room had hair on bathroom sink and the tiolet wouldn't flush. Both rooms had a odor. This motel is out dated and dirty!!!!

We stayed at the Sahara between July 27 and July 30. We have stayed there many times in the past and always found it completely satisfactory. This time we reserved three rooms in the tower building, one for ourselves and one for each of our adult children and their families. Everyone was completely satisfied. The rooms were very clean and... More
