During the height of spring break, we decided to head to the other coast (we live on the Gulf coast) and spend the night. After reading reviews here (and other places), we decided to take a chance as this place had some of the better rates for one night.
We paid $175 plus tax ($15 higher than the max rate posted in the room, which I don't understand, but by the time I realized it, we had paid and checked in and I didn't feel like the hassle) for one night. For that we received an exceptionally clean room. Our room did not have a water view, but the motel is small enough that it doesn't matter – we were steps away from the water. The room had a closet (with plenty of hangers!), bathroom with tub, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, and microwave. They also fit a table and two wicker chairs in the room; I'm not certain how, but they did. The room was not large, which wasn't an issue for us because we needed a place to sleep, but it was clean and comfortable.
The girl who checked us in was not exceptionally friendly. The ice we asked for never materialized and we had to go get it, but these are small things. They had coffee in the morning, which I appreciated greatly, and the next day the staff was quite friendly.
The nicest thing about this motel – other than the beachfront stay, great landscaping around the pool, and the fact that it's not a high rise like every other – is that it had a family and mature couples crowd rather than a spring break vibe. We weren't certain what to expect, but that made it much more enjoyable sitting around the pool.
We would go back here if we found ourselves in the area again, although if we stayed more than a day we would probably question the disparity between the posted maximum rates and what they charged and also get a room facing the water (they seemed larger and had sliding glass doors fronting the beach).
