Located right on the beach, no dunes to climb over. No luxury, but good basic large clean rooms, with kitchen. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great value. Sandy playground with charcoal grills and picnic tables located near pool. Parking conveniently located at your door or just behind it.

The oceanfront rooms are a great location. No dune, offers a great view of the ocean from the patio. First floor rooms you have a step down into, so you can't see the ocean from sitting, but can standing (I'm assuming the second floor you can see from sitting). It was nice sitting in the rocking chairs enjoying the ocean.... More

The wife and I spent a week here. For beach front accommodations I don't think you can find a more reasonably priced room. The hotel is dated, but I find it to be charming. This is a classic beach hotel, not a cookie cutter chain type of place. The room was clean, house keeping was very efficient and was very... More

For thirty years my family has been staying at this place. Still a great place to stay, but do wish they update everything. Can get a little noisy from people outside, especially on the pool side of the hotel. Otherwise this is a great option for the price. Clean place and very friendly staff.

I was teetering between 4 and 5 starts because in essence this place is a no frills motel. But this place really grows on you, from the amazing view and location to the staff all of whom couldn't be more friendly. Sure, the rooms haven't been updated in years and the mattresses could use replacement, but who cares at these... More

This is an awesome place right on the beach. Our room was a 2 queen bed efficiency for pets and it was plenty big. The staff is very friendly and maids do a great job. This place is close to everything, perfect location. We will definitely be back.

We have stayed here in the past. It has been 8 years since we were here and the motel has new owners. They have had much work to do.......large expensive costs that the rooms do not reflect yet. We had a few issues, stopped up sink, not enough kitchen items, which were addressed immediately with a smile and to our... More

It's great to step outside & be on the sand! Nice little motel, could definitely use updating & the kitchen's are pretty small. Beds were comfy, shower head was just ok. We had loud neighbors that were up every morning at 6am so that wasn't fun. Expected more for the price but like I said, it was a fantastic location.... More

My family of four stayed here in Room 11 the week of July 4th and we'll definitely be back. The place had everything we needed - oceanfront, two bedrooms, and a full kitchen. The only thing I wish could change is the smoking policy. It's nearly impossible to enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs because of all the smokers staying... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice so far. We love everything about it! It's so clean, the pool is great, the beach out front is huge, and the staff goes above and beyond! We walked back into our room after coming back in from the beach and Letisha, our housekeeper, was so friendly! She let us know our... More
