I was going through a divorce, and I stayed here with my three children, for a couple of weeks. The hostess went out of her way to check up on me and my kids. I was alone and afraid and hurt and they were there for us. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, it was near the season end... More

This is the best place has the bestest hosts anyone could ask for. We stayed here and our vehicle was broke down for 3 of the 7 days we were there. But we had no worries the Pearmans offered to take us anywhere and everywhere we needed or wanted to go. They also offered us the use of their personal... More

Bed bugs. Told us they were beetles. Room smelled like smoke. Still got charged for the room. Old and outdated. Needs alot of work. Will never stay here again. Love the beach but without this place. Never again.

This motel needs updating however, it was clean and the rooms were good size. The bathroom/shower was really small but still manageable. Owner was super nice and helpful when we initially called. It was located around other hotels so for where we need to be, it was a great location.

Loved everyone there nice and quiet! The owners are so friendly. We love talking to them. Also, right across from the pier and beach. Perfectly priced! I always will go back. Our family has rented the cottage right beside it and it was lovely. Don't let the old look scare you away! They are very clean!

We discovered this gem last year in late fall. Perfect for those who love the beach and want a quiet stay. The owners were gems and this specific beach trip is still one of my favorite memories of all time. Plenty of room, super clean, wonderful service. I have no complaints at all.

We are currently staying at the Moran and we absolutely love it! My family has stayed many times at the Moran since it was built in the 60's. If you are looking for peaceful and clean, then this is the place to stay. If you are looking for all of the frills of current day hotel chains, then you may... More

We booked our room 3 hours before we got there. They were so nice and gave us a big enough room for all 7 of us! Best service! A nice place, clean rooms, and complete kitchen! Loved it! We will stay here again and again!

We have stayed here many times. Good rooms for good prices. The efficiency rooms are awsome and spacious with a kitchen. 2 queen beds and a folding futton. Next to a beach access. Friendly staff. Recommended.

We spent 3 nights at the Moran Motel and had a great stay. We expected it to be a small beach motel, and that is what it is - a throw-back to the beach scene of the 50's and 60's. The room was small but sufficient. The furnishing were comfortable and not worn as is so often in many beach... More
