The room we had was spotless---we stayed her last year and we were so happy about our stay that we are coming back this year for a 2 night stay. Debbie and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I reccomend this motel to anyone who wants a quiet and quaint motel.

The manager, Debbie, was very responsive to all requests and even provided our group with wood and kindling for the fire pit. The... More

We stayed for two nights and loved it. The rooms are quite nicely decorated (beach style) and ours was very clean. We didn't sleep too well the first night because of loud neighbours (walls are thin) but the second night we got a great night's sleep. The manager gave us a warm welcome and the check in was very efficient.... More

Friendly greeting upon arrival. Room was small but cozy and clean, cute beachy decor. Close to restaurants and beautiful beaches. There are picnic tables and grills that make it more family friendly if eating out is too expensive.

Very helpful and nice. Room was perfectly clean. Grounds were vey well maintained. They made us feel like we were at home. Had a kitchenette that was stocked with everything you need and was modern. Made for a great end of summer surprise trip for our kids. Just the right size too and very quiet.
