My family of 5 came in for the weekend from Raleigh. We were very pleased with the rooms. They were clean, and the AC was in great working order. The staff was very friendly and very helpful (I left a set of car keys after checkout and they called us straight away). This is not a 5-star luxury hotel. It's... More

My husband and I were "childless" for a couple of days and we decided to do an impromptu visit on the beach. Not much was available but we found this place on hotels.com. We own a 5star timeshare in Florida so we are accustomed to the 5star lifestyle. HOWEVER we have also stayed at mom and pop places like this... More

I would recommend this motel to anyone. The price was very affordable. The location was awesome, within easy walking distance to the beach, dining, shops, rides, pier, etc. The room was very clean, the pool was nice. The place had a nice little family set up in the back with grills, a dining area, and games for children. The staff... More

Affordable & CLEAN! Very friendly staff who actually made me feel like they appreciated my business. No frills, low key & within walking distance of public beach access and the boardwalk/amusement area. This met our needs & then some. Free wifi, cable tv, well kept pool onsite. Firm but comfortable beds. Very cool patio area to unwind with cornhole boards.... More

The place is old but updates have been made. We stayed in a double room with a kitchen. Everything worked fine. Beds were made every day and fresh towels brought in. The website does list two pools but only one is in use. The wifi tends to drop out frequently. It is well located within walking distance of most restaurants... More

Staff was very kind and allowed us to check in 3 hours early! Upon getting to the room I found stains on the pillow case and bed sheets. I am convinced they didn't change the sheets at all! There was hair on the sheets in addition to the stains. The toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned either with what... More

I recently stayed here June 22&23. I chose this motel basically for the price($89.07 a night, including tax) and for it's location,2 blocks from beach & 3 blocks from the boardwalk. I knew it was an older motel and didn't know what to expect but I was quite pleased with my room. I had a single room on the 2nd... More

First, let me say that I know this is a budget motel. I do not expect it to have all the conveniences of a Marriott hotel, but there are some things that every place should provide when you plunk down your money.($179 per night for a two bedroom unit) 1) Air conditioning. Yes, there is a small window unit in... More

The only good thing about this hotel was that it was close to the boardwalk/beach. Room and bed ate super small. Me and my sister both camr in feeling fine an woke up with sore throats and stuffy nose, as soon as we left the hotel we felt fine again. The staff was nice but the price is way more... More

My daughter and I came here for a weekend away, and we are thrilled with the place. We came to enjoy the beach and surroundings, and everything is within walking distance. Great park behind the motel (running/biking path, kayak/paddle boat rentals for a great price), walking distance to beach and boardwalk, and there's a Squiggly's Ice cream shop right next... More
