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

Location is very good. You come to the property and you can smell the ocean air. Plenty of things to do nearby. I came with the family, we walked to different attractions in the area. The motel is enjoyable.

I stayed at the motel for the weekend. The property is right on the beach. The price is affordable for what you get, I paid $59 per night for a place right on the beach. The room was large, and they are clean, but don't expect Holiday Inn or Marriott type service. There is no breakfast, the price is for... More

Old, falling apart, dirty, paper thin walls, almost non-existent WiFi; scary, noisy long-term renters loitering and leering at you like you're going to be their next victim. I wouldn't even take a shower in that disgusting bathroom. Could hear next door neighbor snoring. Don't stay here.

I would not advise anyone to stay here. we arrived place was a building site, foolishly we booked in, afterwards seeing the room we decided not to stay, we were refused a refund. The room was dirty, ceiling had a hole near the shower area which has been covered with some sort of wood. Not a pleasant experience.

There is no ground floor access at this property. The women who checked us in spent the entire time of check in on her cell phone. She seemed to be much more interested in her cell connection than the guests that were attempting to check in. The property is in such bad shape, I'm surprised that it's legal for them... More
