Stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding a few weeks ago. Located on the bay side of the island it is a standard beach motel with everything you need and a nice view. Stayed in a deluxe room that included a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Decor dated but clean and servicable. Close to restaurants and shops and... More

Way too many flower pot ashtrays every where even around the pool which I think in a no no. This is a big turn off especially when you have kids. They have complimentary coffee which is a joke since the coffee pots are disgusting! Fortunately there's s bagel shop right across the street. This place is expensive. Rooms are dated... More

I needed to book a room over labor day weekend. This was the only place within 25 miles that had a room. That should give you a clue. Not only did they have a room but they were only half full. That should give you a second clue;. So the price for 2 nights in a bay side suite? 450... More

I loved this place. It is situated directly on the bay, has a nice pool, clean and close to a lot of places. Its a traditional beach motel, not trendy, but above average. We reserved a 2 queen standard room, but upon check-in got upgraded to a bay view suite that had 2 separate rooms with one queen bed on... More

The rooms are spartan but, we were comfortable. There is a nice pool. We were with our grandchildren and they shared a bed and my wife and I the other. There are lots of restaurants near by as well as beaches and Fantasy Island amusement park.

We stayed at this motel last year, we had a wonderful time. Found the rooms clean and management very welcoming and friendly. It was the reason we came back this year, excitedly so. What a disappointment! Did something happen with these owners that they are no longer friendly, and feel they need to treat their guests rudely? We had rooms... More

This place was disgusting. It smelled awful. The customer service was atrocious. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The owners don't care about th consumer because they know people need a place to stay and in a pinch have very little options. It should have been a sign that this was the only place with a week vacancy... More

The only reason this motel is still operating is because they are on an island with limited motels to choose from. The rooms stink of cigarettes and black mold. The carpeted rooms are damp and dirty. The staff is unhelpful and unfriendly.
