Got there late, front desk guy was adiment that he did not welcome smokers.....4 of us were on motorcycles, 2 of us were in a convertible Mustang.......he did not even know at the time that any of us smoked & recommended that we go on up the road to another location.... tired from the ride, in need of a shower, a bite to eat & a clean place to stay.... The rates were reasonable, the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean....HOWEVER, he made me feel a little second class. I do not smoke inside, I do not invade others space, there was a constant breeze, I realize he has a non smoking property, but seemed to believe that we would violate his policy, even told us we could not smoke on the sidewalk...! The location was not spectacular, no view at all....the continental breakfast was not impressive...the best thing about this place is that it is located across the busy roadway from the Category 3 Bar & Grill, which he did not favor, but we found to be very welcoming, kind staff, cold beer, smoking allowed & delicious food! If I owned a motel, I might be a little less forgiving, perhaps charge more for smoking inside, but at least let my good paying customers smoke on the sidewalk that I do not own. We drove through huge water/mud holes to park.......nastied up our rides....Wish we'd gone on down the road....!
If you're just passing through & want to see the water, don't stop here....especially if...

clarify for the record: These guest arrived without a reservation and therefore were unaware of our
strict no smoking policy. We choose to be a smoke free facility completely and explain in detail
what our policy is to all walk in guests , not to be rude but rather to ensure our guests enjoy their
stay. If a prospective guest is a smoker we know most likely they will not like our strict policy so we are happy to recommend alternative lodging facilities that won't restrict their smoking habits.
We do this as a courtesy,and again we learn that no good deed goes unpunished.
