This hotel really needs an update. The furniture and carpeting are very old and need replaced. We stayed one night to avoid the bridge traffic on Saturday. The cost per night is high for what you get.

The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are a nice size but old looking and the beds are not very comfortable. The bathrooms need major updating. My faucet in the shower was ready to fall off. Breakfast in the morning was very simple but nice and the staff was always working hard to replenish anything they ran out... More

Extremely kind day staff, very professional and friendly. Evening manager was highly unprofessional. Knocked on our room door after 10pm to ask about a previous vacationer. Very bizarre. Room smelled like urine. Breakfast selection very poor. Hot water not hot at all! Pool is excellent. Lobby area pretty. Close to everything.

This looks nice in the adverts but is not. Our room smelled very damp, the bedside lights did not work and were nearly off the wall. The toilet flush packed up and both the room and the bathroom were in need of refurbishment & redecoration. the walls are very thin being made of plasterboard I think, so most noises from... More

We selected this hotel because it was affordable and close to the beach. The staff was wonderful. They were very friendly, accomidating and hospitable. The pool was wonderful and the beach shuttle was a greatly appreciated added bonus. The continental breakfast consisted of simple carbs and could have benefited from meat and eggs. Due to dietary restrictions, we were unable... More

We stayed there for 3 days, and it was nice. The staff had to be some of the nicest people I've ever met. We got to check in early, had fresh chocolate cookies and fresh coffee,(No cost). The coffee was awesome, best tasting I had down there. Their breakfast was just enough to get you motivated to get you on... More

We found this place to be an excellent choice to stay for our vacation. The motel has been around since the early 1970's, but was recently renovated in 2012. The renovation was well-done and the place is well maintained. It has three floors with an exterior wooden "deck" staircase. We stayed on the third floor. (It was good exercise.) As... More

For anyone looking for a decent place just to sleep, this is quite acceptable. Don't mind the reviews that complained about the noise; we learned about that incident and experienced nothing of the kind. When you seek to book a room, ask the owner about that review. Our stay was pleasant and the location was quite useful for what we... More

Very social and welcoming. Clean. Well maintained. Only a 5 minute walk from the beach. My fiancé and I went to plan our wedding and found many great locations. We had a blast with all of the activities the area offers such as bumper cars, putt putt, movie theatre, bowling and a ymca. I suggest trying the pig mans bbq,... More
