I will write the facts to help anyone decide if this is the place for them. I never write about hotels, but I think this will help you be better informed.
I was first wondering about the area. The hotel is write near the beach, but off the beaten path a bit from the main stays. The area is safe. I am 36 years old, female, and went for the weekend alone to escape arctic temps in the Midwest. There is a nearby bike/jogging path and can walk around the area alone without any worries.
That area of the beach isn't at all crowded, which may be good or bad depending on how you like the beach. There is also a huge nearby pier for you fishing enthusiasts.
With that said, unto the motel. The motel is small. Just a small series of 1-floor buildings which have their own "apartments". The buildings looked like they will built in the 60's or 70's with no updating. Meaning there's original "tile" flooring, Olive and pink tiled bathrooms, original fixtures, etc. I think the ceiling fans were "newer" and there were three of them in my room. The electrical is original. No, there's no outlet in the bathrooms. I knew this ahead of time from Orbitz reviews and brought some light extension cords. I didn't use them because there's a large mirror in the bedroom right over the outlet and used that to dry hair etc.
The walls were all stale white with very few pictures hanging on the wall lacking a "homey" feel. There is no ironing board or iron. There's no hair dryer. The room was "clean" but very very plain and outdated. It didn't scream "romance" in the least, so I wouldn't go again with a significant other.
The people who own the place are very nice. I checked in early and my room wasn't ready. So, they gave me a full kitchen room instead of an efficiency (upgrade). My room had a separate bedroom, TV/couch area, kitchen and kitchen table seating 4. I also asked to do late check out and they were super cool with that as well. They live on the grounds so you can easily reach them.
There was a stove, microwave, and fridge. No coffee maker. I was smart enough to bring plastic forks, knives, spoons, bowls, and cups so I was set. There were a couple of coffee mugs, plates, bowls, silverware provided, but no pots or anything extensive AT ALL. Plus the expectation is that you clean everything before you leave but they provide no dish soap. I was glad I thought ahead. The fridge had times when it ran very loudly. Once it went on that way at night, so I tried closing the bedroom door. The door needs about 1/2 inch shaved off of it because it couldn't physically close. I just put a jam in the bottom to get it to shut as much as possible.
I stayed there two nights. They provided three towels and no washcloths. One towel was a little stained so I used that as a bath mat. So, I was down to two towels. I have long hair and towels are always needed. There was no cleaning service between days which I was not aware of. Luckily I didn't throw my towels on the floor, because that was all I had the whole weekend to use. That probably bothered me the most.
It seems that parking there is limited, but I was always able to find a parking spot at any time of day and parking is free. My rental was a 2009 Mustang and it was never screwed with which was also a plus.
The pool is small. The deck around the pool had only regular chairs not lounge chairs. The deck was only wide enough for a person to lay parallel with it...maybe 3 feet wide. On windy days to escape the blowing sand of the beach, I went to the pool. There's a brick wall on one side of it which blocked the wind. I put my towel (beach towel I brought) on the concrete and laid by it. That seemed to work out well.
There's no nightlife in the area so you will need a rental car for sure and navigation system if you can swing it. There are some one way roads and confusing routes to get there. My GPS saved me until I learned my way around.
The people that stay at the motel are mostly older European couples and some families with grown children. Not that it means anything...just an observation. I think some people live there for an extended time during winter months.
I didn't see any bugs in my room or anything. Like I said, it seemed... clean. The bed wasn't super comfortable, but it stayed cool inside with a single AC unit and fans. No problem there. My stay was $83 a night. It was cheaper than many others on the beach. Would I stay there again? I don't know. If it was just me and the price was right? Maybe. In March I am staying at a 3 1/2 star hotel I scored through name your own price at Priceline. Spring break... 6 nights for 65 bucks a night. 5 miles from the beach but it is beautiful and worth the short drive to the beach. You have options!! I roll with things so I didn't really complain about much.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
