This 2-story motel is tucked sideways, perpendicular to the beach and has ready access to the beach just past the pool area. Hard to spot when you're coming down A1-A.
I was surprised upon arrival that we were expected to pay the bill in full upfront. That was a turnoff and an unusual request being frequent travelers that we are.
The motel and grounds are not well maintained. There are roof leaks and subsequent water damage visible. The concrete stairs are blackened with dirt. Windows are dirty outside.
There are rusty door hinges and the door lock in the room we had was broken and hard to lock. Walls are dated looking.
The water heater broke and the whole building was without hot water for an entire day.
The next day a pipe broke and flooded out a room that people were staying in.
The rooms are nice sized no matter which type you select to stay in. And they are kept clean by housekeepers who leave you with a good supply of towels, shampoo, soaps, etc each day.
The tv is tiny but does get good reception and has a vast selection of cable channels. Wireless internet connection was very good. Low lighting in the room using compact florescents makes it hard to read. Would be better with brighter bulbs and give a warmer feel to the room. The windows are not the opening type so if you want fresh air you'll have to leave the door open. The air conditioner runs smoothly. But the heater needed a good cleaning and filter change.
The breakfast was little apples (nicely individually wrapped in clear wrap with a ribbon!) and some individually packaged cakes and hot beverages. Nothing more but there really isn't space in the lobby for a bigger spread and there aren't any tables. It is meant to take back to your room or outside.
Despite the above mentioned issues we had a really good time on the Island during our stay. The beaches are beautiful, sunrises are great, and the historic part of town is fun. Good variety of restaurants too. Fort Clinch is open to the public too and is an attraction worth going to if you like history or nature or fishing on the half-mile long pier. There is an entrance fee.
We would likely visit again but do hope that the owners of this property invest in maintenance and the sorely needed upkeep and repairs as it does have so much potential.
