This place was great. We were going for a quick overnight stay, and last minute. This was the only place that had rooms left, and when we called the lady- Carrie was extremely nice and helpful. I was a bit unsure because of the reviews I had seen, but I figured we aren't going to be in the room much, so what did it matter?
The price of the hotel could not be beat. Literally right across the street from the beach,and the hotel closest to it in price comparison was the best Western, which is right next to it basically. The Best Western was about $35 more though. As far as the room goes, it's not THAT outdated. I didn't find the decor to be 70's or anything like that, it was like any other budget hotel you stay in. It was clean! The bathroom was clean, we just had a tile shower stall, and it was perfect. We had enough room for 2 adults and 2 kids. You also do not need to drive anywhere when you are staying. The Pier is just a few walks down the road. My four year old walked all over just fine, we had the stroller for the 2 year old.
The nice lady at the front desk let us park in the parking lot when we arrived in the morning (we got there at 9AM way before check in) that way we didn't have to pay to park. She was kind enough to call our cellphone and let us know when our room was ready to be checked into. They provide a hose at the front of the property to hose the sand off before you get to your room. I am very thankful for that, the line for the showers was LONG! There are resident cats hanging out in the office which the kids absolutely loved, and there were coffee and pastries in the morning. :)
The one downfall was that there was no air conditioning, we also happened to be there when there was a high heat warning in effect, so that normally wouldn't have been an issue. They do provide fans in the room though, and the windows open, and have screens!
I would definitely stay here again, you can't beat it for the price, location, and the friendly staff!
