My friend and I were headed to the beach for a quick two day trip and were looking for a cheap, but clean place to sleep. We found Crosswinds through tripadvisor, and since they had the best price in the area, we decided to give it a shot.
When we arrived, it looked like your standard beach motel, so we weren't really expecting much. Oh boy were we wrong, this place is amazing! When we went to check in, we were greeted by Rita and she was so friendly and helpful (she helped us find the perfect dinner spot).
When we got to our room, we were amazed. It was so clean, sported "green" toiletries and Keurig machine and was much more than your average motel room.
The distance to the beach is not too bad, but I could see how it would be a little far for some. Definitely manageable though.
I highly recommend the Crosswinds motel. We will definitely be back!
Also, make sure to check out the great little grocery store across the street. Another great find recommended by Rita!
