We have been here all this week and same great service and clean comfortable room at a great price. Granddaughter is having a blast in the pool and the arcade around the corner. Trent and the staff are great! Hate for this week to end.

great location and clean room. Very courteous staff and respectful fellow vacationers. Mostly very quiet at night which I and my family enjoyed and appreciated. My wife did not like the lack of water pressure in the shower but frankly it did not bother me as I was just glad to be staying where I could see the beach in... More

Went 5-31-14 was a great view, clean room, was well worth the money, water was hot, appliances all worked, bed was comfortable, and it was quiet, right on the beach couldn't ask for anything more, will be back next year.

Friendly staff, right on the beach, primarily occupied by fishermen as it is 100 feet from the pier. The beds and bedding need upgraded. It's a pretty good value at < $100 per night with a full kitchen.

OK! Nothing special but nothing awlful; that's about it. This motel is average, the room smelled of a combination Pine sol and mustiness but it's all relative to the price of the room! People have to remember that upscale is up the street and average accommodations here are basic sleeping quarters because I mind paying the big $$$ for a... More

Judging by these reviews we thought this would be a nice place to stay at... but it was not all that great. Yes the staff was very friendly and nice.
