We have stayed here a couple of times, mostly because of the price. Also, we like that they have lobster pots and a grilling area which has everything you need, including plates, platters, utensils and table cloths.
Recreation on the property includes a lovely, heated pool, shuffleboard, swing set and a basketball hoop. The basketball hoop is located in the driveway right across from some of the rooms. It was annoying trying to drive when there were people in the way playing basketball. Also, some of the people playing had no decency to keep the ball from hitting the cars that were parked in front of the rooms.
This motel is within walking distance to the beach. I'd say it takes about 15 to 20 minutes and there are no sidewalks on the way. Still, it beats paying $15 to park at Wells Beach for the day.
The rooms are pretty basic, nothing luxurious. They do have a large mini fridge and a microwave. They do not have hair dryers in the rooms. You will have to ask for one at the desk.
The owners seem nice enough. They are a bit addled though. I was overcharged and they took a while to get back to me and to correct the issue. I overheard other guests having similar issues as well.
If you are looking for basic accommodations, this place could save you some money. But, keep a close eye on what they charge you.
