My family and I came down from Pennsylvania and David Tripp (owner) and his staff were absolutely wonderful. This will definitely be where we stay from now on! The motel is cleaner than some big name hotels we have stayed at! They were absolutely fantastic!! Thank you for such a wonderful time!!

What a great place to kick up your feet, and be able to access everything. It's a place where you can park, go to the beach, go down the Boardwalk to eat, and do a little fishing too. Shopping, great food, entertainment.... It's all available within walking distance.

I stayed here last weekend to go fishing and had a great time. The rooms, pool, and hot tub were the cleanest I've ever seen at any place I've stayed at. Everyone who works there are great. I can't wait to come back next year and stay longer than just the weekend!
