It was locked in our rooms, we trust these people to clean our rooms, not clean us out! Heck, they never took out the trash, cleaned the room, or even... More

This is the worst place in the history of history to stay. Sure the beach is right in front of you but they employee thieves. Several items were stolen from our room. When management was informed of the situation they act like they do not care because at the bottom of the receipt they say they are not responsible for... More

Me and fiancé came down for little vacation and the hotel has good view but was expecting a full kitchen to cook instead got a small fridge and tiny stove. Hardly came into clean once in four days and last day before we left they came to clean. Bed hurts our back. Good view but wouldn't stay again!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and the room we got was awesome. It was just a few steps away from the bay and the vistas were out of this world. Newly remodeled and very very clean with a nice little kitchenette. Check in was fast and easy, can't complain.

The "Kitchenette area was never sweep during the three days we were there. The Kitchenette only supplied the stove , sink, microwave.... More

I stayed here in December of 2014. I was lucky enough to stay in the newly remodeled rooms. Hard wood floors is so much better than carpet. The room was clean. Staff was ok. The only problem I had was the A/C went out over the weekend and it couldn't be fixed until Monday. It was 80 degrees in the... More

I read the reviews on here before we booked anything and even after reading the bad ones, we booked here. It was a really good trip. The room was clean, recently remodeled and you step right on the beach. I would recommend this motel to anyone. And we will definitely be staying here again.

Amazing service and views. I had to call the front desk numerous times because we got lost and they never complained once. They were so helpful and sweet. I will definitely be returning there as soon as possible.

We visited 2/21/2015. Yes this motel is literally 5 feet from the beach which is great. But some of the halls of the motel had bags of trash. Lots of construction going on also. Beds, tables, & old pieces of ply wood lying around. Our room smelled like it was just painted before our arrival, not to mention paint splatters... More
