Staying here in the off-season is kind of like camping. There are "no set office hours," but the owner leaves her cell phone number taped to the office door so you can check in. The room itself was small but serviceable, although the double bed was VERY noisy. TV was fine, never tried the wifi. Everything was clean.

So glad that I trusted my instincts and bypassed the big chain hotels for this motel! The outside needs a little bit if a facelift, but the rooms are awesome and the location is fantastic! Can't wait to go back and stay longer!

So glad we could provide accommodations that were pleasing! Since our purchase of the motel in September 2012 and the remodeling in 2013, we have tried to keep our rooms very clean and to a bright, beachy atmosphere. Thanks for visiting and we look forward to your return visit! More

My now fiance' and I stayed in room 2 ..I must admit when we pulled into the parking lot I wondered if I was going to be able to keep my flip flops on ....or take them off to swat bugs off our room walls. But when we went in our room it was NOT what I was expecting! It... More

I was trying to find a place to stay for Mother's Day when I found this little motel. Gail, the owner, is absolutely a delight. She personally checked on us multiple times during our stay. The rooms are clean with nice features. The outside is plain and unassuming but don't let that make you think it isn't a nice place... More

From the outside, the Tower Circle Motel doesn't look like an enchanting accommodation, but once you step foot inside your newly-remodeled room, you won't want to leave. You can tell this establishment is old. But the renovations done to the rooms are outstanding. The furniture, paint, bathroom and carpet are brand new and very up-to-date. There is a nice refrigerator... More

A slight smell (like new paint) but otherwise super clean. Slightly on the small side but not too cramped. Parking lot is a little cramped. LOVED the porch swing. Just a short walk to the beach, great location. Definitely will be coming back.

We had a great Labor Day weekend stay in a newly renovated room. Everything was new and it seemed like a brand new place. Small motel in a small beach town with the beach just a very short walk away. You can listen to the waves crash from the nice chairs outside your room.

I went with my 2 sons and originally only thought 1 was coming. The owners made sure all was ok with the surprise addition and were very kind before, during and after my stay. Th price was very reasonable and it was a very short walk to the beach. There was a kitchenette and fully stock(basics) kitchen if I had... More

We had a wonderful stay! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I'm not sure what the rooms looked like before, but you can tell they've put a lot of work into remodeling the place. We took up 2 rooms with our 5 kids for a quick weekend trip and had no complaints. The beach is just a few seconds... More
