“Not again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Over all it was a cheap motel with no frills. At first it seemed pretty clean; however, there was mold all over the ac unit and dirt on the floors by the beds from the previous guests that was not cleaned up (including shriveled up blueberries). The motel allows pets which is great even though we left our dog at home. The people in the room behind us had decided to bring their dog and leave it unattended in the room. Unfortunately for us, we had to listen to this poor dog cry and bark from 2pm when we got there til we went out that night and again starting at 7 am! They should definitely implement a pet policy preventing people from leaving their pets alone or at least have a way to contact them if their pet is disturbing other guests. When I called the front desk to complain about the noise their answer was well if the dogs barking the owners are not around so hopefully they come back soon. Really!!??

This place is cheap. I paid just about $100 for the Sunday night after the 4th of July. Therefore, I wasn't expecting the Ritz-Carlton. And the Ritz it wasn't. BUT: it was clean, a good location, friendly and helpful staff. I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a night or two, but if you're looking for a cheap and clean place to stay, you can't beat it.

Came down with a couple friends for the 4th and it was great. The room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly, from Amy greeting us with a smile to Elisabeth helping us find our way around. We got to enjoy the beach, and the night life. Some great bars around. Go check the place out and have a great time.

We stopped on our way home from a Southern Vacation. We stay here every year and this year the Motel changed hands. THANKFULLY my favorite clerk (nice young lady who has worked here for 9 years) was on duty, training a new staff member. The rooms are painted, updated and still as reasonable as ever. Staff does make your stay top notch. We stayed at 5 places traveling over 2600 miles and this was the BEST stay of our trip. Such a pleasure to deal with helpful, courteous staff, in a facility that really cares about their customers. Wish I could find a Sea Esta IV on all of our travels ! ! !

Room Tip: We have stayed here for a week at a time and find the room adequate for our needs. Easy access to al...

My husband and I have stayed at Sea Esta IV every spring for years and it was really getting a little dated looking. This year they have redone the rooms and it's really nice now. The rooms have been painted and housekeeping is doing a great job. The office workers are friendly and very helpful. The Young lady in the office told us that they have a new owner and he has done a great job of the makeover. Will be coming back again.

We have stayed at Sea Esta numerous times (Mostly at Sea Esta 4, but recently at Sea Esta 3)! We have always had an enjoyable stay! The staff at 3 went out of their way to see that we were comfortable and had access to any and everything we needed! The rooms were clean, the AC was cold! When our TV would not work after getting checked in, they made sure that they got it working! They were able to change our room to one with a better AC unit, but were willing to call in the repair guy if needed! We will stay at any of the Sea Esta's at anytime, given the fact that in the past three visits, we have not had even one tiny problem, that was not resolved in a satisfactory manner. Try getting this safe friendly, prompt service form some of the big named hotels!

Want to this hotel for the reasonable rates and couldn't have been happier. My aunt's friend suggested this place because it is dog friendly (not many of'em around). The staff was more than helpful. From the time I checked in till the time I checked out. They always had a smile on there face even if the person in front of them were bein jerks. One of the ladies was very helpful when me and my boyfriend were looking to hear some good music. She suggested Lower Case Blues. She even looked them up for us so we knew where they were playing.
The rooms are clean but a little small when you have 2 big dogs. But we had a blast.
