Instead of heeding the warnings I read on trip advisor I decided to stay here with my family. OMG this was the worst experience ever. Not only is it dirty and ragedy but it's true the owner rents to all kinds of crazy drunks and drug addicts. Every single morning we were woken up at 6am by them. My husband called them an alarm clock of bums! They were on the porch arguing and fussing loudly. They live there and they just hang out all the time. I had to go out there several times and ask them to keep it down..which of course they didn't. The Russian guy who lives on the property and manages the propety is not only missing teeth but he's missing manners. I had to ask him every day for fresh towels and fresh sheets and he would complain to me and make me bring him the dirty ones as he kept a literal count of every one of them. One day I asked him for sheets and he told me I would have to wait until he finished drying them. That night he still hadn't came so I had to call the owner. He knocks on my door without saying a word..not i'm sorry or sorry I forgot..nothing but just looked at me like he was crazy and rudely threw the towels at me. I was so ready to check out! The only reason we stayed was because my husband had paid upfront for the entire week. I would never had done this without seeing the room first. But it was storming and very late the night we checked in and my husband just wanted to get us out of the rain. Whatever you do DON'T STAY HERE!! it really is as awful as others are saying. There are much better motels on the same block for only a little more and it's worth it. Yes it is close to the beach and the location is great..but it's not worth it. Our room was full of ants and mold. I literally wouldn't walk on the floor without my shoes because it was so unsanitary. I bought cleaning supplies and tried to clean it but even that didn't help much because the room had such a bad smokey smell. I am not one to usually blog on these sites but I felt the need to let others know that this motel doesn't look anything like their website. I will post pics so u can see how raggedy it is.
