“Great stay on the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I stayed at the Grand Prix motel in June for over a week and it was great! The fact that you are a few steps from the beach is amazing. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the balcony. I would recommend this motel to anyone. The rates are really affordable and the owner was always so nice and helpful.

Second year we stayed and once again it was great. Yea the parking is tight but thats about the only thing wrong. Great location and affordable rates. Clean heated pool and friendly owners. Already looking forward to our third stay.

Pros:
Room was clean, oceanfront, owners very helpful, full sized fridge & microwave, we didn't see any bugs.

Cons:
Pool area/furniture in very bad disrepair, AC unit very loud in our room and would not adjust, our door would not lock - key wouldn't work (manager did help find a solution), parking very tight, found hair on the pillowcase (mattresses & sheets were otherwise fine).

Overall it worked for the one night we were staying there, but definitely will make other arrangements next time.

Room Tip: Get room as close to the ocean side as possible, traffic is loud.

We stayed at the Grand Prix August 3-8. The owner, Bill was very accommodating toward us. Very friendly. The room was very clean and a very good size for the 2 of us. I loved that it had a view of the ocean from the balcony. It is just steps from the clean pool and the beach was just off the pool deck. Our first night, some other guests at the motel welcomed us with a wonderful steak dinner on the grill. Probably next time we will get the room with the kitchenette. Thank you for a wonderful time.

My family was here in July 2013, when we arrived it was very last minute, the manager was so accommodating and rented us two rooms with great views of the ocean within minutes.The pool was well maintained and heated.It was just steps to the beach...we stayed for over a week and enjoyed every minute of it. We were close to restaurants and shopping, and could walk to a lot of these places. It was well worth it budget wise. The manager was a great guy with lots of information about the area. He was on site everyday and night making sure everyone was happy with their rooms where else do you get that? Thank you for a great vacation....we will be back..
The MacPherson's from Canada......see you next year!!!!!

Like some other reviewers here, I have mixed feelings about this place. The resident managers were friendly, professional and helpful. However, these qualities could not overcome the overall lack of polish of this old and fraying property. The A/C in my upstairs room was very loud and the temperature could not be adjusted: on or off were the only options. The bedding was mediocre with very rough sheets and worn bedspreads. Carpeting smelled musty and there was food left in the fridge from a previous guest. Getting to my room was a bit of a struggle. Up a steep stairway on the back of the building that overlooked a messy, debris filled walkway. The view from the very small balcony was onto the parking lot, with barely a slice of the ocean visible. At night, the very bright lights of the parking lot and the nearby highway made any view of the night sky or ocean impossible. This was my first visit here. I needed a place for overnight before going on to stay with friends. So the low price was the main attraction. Unfortunately it could not compensate for all the drawbacks.

Room Tip: The poor design of this older motel makes it extremely difficult to have a good view of the beach un...
