Got a really great rate on bookings.com and stayed here for 4 nights. It is quite a way up State Street, so if you want to be within walking distance to the ocean, then this is not for you. Rooms seem to have been recently painted and the beds were comfortable if a little soft for my personal taste. Flat screen tv, pretty good wifi connection and a nice assortment of free toiletries. As ever with motels of this style, thin walls, but i didn't need to use my ear plugs, and i am a pretty light sleeper. A couple of small issues. There is a gap under the door, which meant I met ants, an ear wig and a couple of wood lice during my stay - this would be so easy to remedy. Also there was a fair bit of ground in food on my carpets from a previous guest. I saw the cleaner vacuum it, but that stuff needed to be washed out. The pools and jacuzzi looked nice, but it was a bit cold for me to take advantage of them this time. The breakfast in the faux 50s diner was really good: bread, English muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, 4 types of cereal, oatmeal, breakfast croissants...the list goes on! Really set me up for the day! The staff I met were friendly and helpful. All round a good budget motel.
