“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I cannot say enough about this place. The people who run it will accomodate you with anything
you ask for , they are very friendly. As far as the suite we had everything we needed and it was a clean place which is all we could ask for. The location is the best anyone could ask for, you can walk to shopping centre, you are accross the street from a beautful beach and in the evenings you simply walked down to the pier for restaurants and lots of great entertainment.

I told Gino the owner that I didn't want to tell people how great the place was because I don't want to lose this place but have already booked for next year so I could be sure to get in.

If you're looking for something like the Hilton then this is not the place for you but you simply will not find a better place for the money you pay. Can't wait to go back!

I spent just under a night and a half. For me the half was enough.
I found the two beds which I had in my room to be rather uncomfortable. They were incredibly hard. The settings were very dismal .The television was ancient and small as much as it being a holiday one like myself like keeping up with current affairs and sports.
However it is in a great location and the surroundings are very quiet.
Good for a night....

The owners are fabulous! On St. Patrick's Day they hosted a BBQ for all their guests, just BYOB. They made pasta, chicken, salad, sausage and more! Very hospital.
The hotel is a very short walk to the beach and many restaurants, shops and grocery store and CVS!
Nice sized heated built in pool too!
Very affordable rates and I would most definitely stay again!
Thank you Gino and Margerite for a truly relaxing vacation!

The grounds are very nice! Parking is a bit tight though and I was worried my car would get dinged by another car. Location is outstanding! Close to town and the beach. On to the room. The door lock was loose, scuffs on the walls, beat-up floor, lumpy pillow/mattress, stains on sheets and towels, power cords running everywhere, and I don't think the fridge worked. most of the stuff did smell clean but after using the same things for probably 20 years, they are going to become weathered. I would not stay here again in season, nor would I recommend it to anyone but a budget traveler. I am not sure if other rooms have seen more love, but the one I stayed in had not. If the owners renovate these rooms, this place would be great! Do not think they have seen a make-over since the 80s.

I stayed a night at this place when my motel across the street had a problem with the room. I had a nice little room with its own kitchenette, complete with full sized fridge, stove and coffee maker. Slept well. It was quiet despite being on the first floor (though in the back of the pool.) The pool is heated and pleasant. Beach is not far away (this is on A1A.) Shopping center with groceries, etc. only a block away. Cable TV in the room. Overall, very well situated and no complaints whatsoever. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: This is on the main north-south road along the coast so best to get a room at the back.

Good location, clean, comfortable beds at a good price. Stayed one in route to Bahamas. Nice staff.
This is an older style motel, with exterior doors. Would have liked a better lock on the door, but did not experience any problems.
