Traveled with my husband and our 4 children. Ages 17, 10, 7, and 14 months. The MOM in me gave the room the "no sock" test... meaning that when we checked in, I immediately took off my sandals and walked all over the room, feeling for any particle or dirt or grime.... nothing. I went to the fridge and opened the door.. sniffed hard inside... no odor. Fresh and clean. I went into the bathroom and inspected the sink drain, the shower drain, the back/ under the toilet.. all clean. Windowsills/ baseboards... all clean. Under the bed - no dustbunnies there! =)
All of this is vital when you have a baby in tow. No sand particle in THE WHOLE ROOM, despite being on the beach.
My husband checked out the pool and BBQ area - clean ! The owners are proud of their property and it shows! The pool is sparkly and clean
We cooked our meals there mostly - btw, the kitchen has EVERYTHING you would need to do so. Even frosty mugs in the freezer! It's a small electric stove, so you can even bake something if you like.
The beach is a quick walk down a quiet residential street. Sunrise/ sunset is practically deserted, and even at the height of the day, there are NOT many people to compete with. The pool was clean and there's lots of umbrellas and chairs around. There's a grassy area with plush carpety green grass where you can play with the kids, dogs, etc, or just SIT and have a picnic. Shady and quiet, just behind the motel.
Our room was quiet, but even if there were outside noise, the AC unit didn't turn off so we weren't bothered.
We would definitely stay again.
