“Terrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Firstly, the positives... It has free parking, a good location at the end of the boardwalk where it's all happening (the other end is mostly hotels) and the pool was nice, with a nice view over the water. There is a big fridge in the room which is handy.

However, our room was tiny, even by European standards. Difficult to fit your cases in, especially as we were on a 3 week hol. The bed was a small double and the bedding made me feel like I was at my grandmas! the shower would suddenly go hot and scald us. There is no hairdryer or iron in the room. The air con is really noisy. And the room is straight out onto a communal patio area, with people walking past all hours, it can be pretty noisy. Also, there are no curtains just thin blinds so the room is really light, no good for someone like me who needs pitch black to sleep! I thought this motel was very expensive for what it is, but then again it was a holiday wknd and everywhere was expensive!

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

We went there a few days ago. Really good location because we were literally by the water but everything else needs work. For a $123/night stay my husband and I expected a better room but instead we got a tiny one that smelled like cigarettes..our queen sized bed (as advertised) was pretty much a double. We requested a cot for our baby but they didnt give us any (all 3 of us squeezed on the one bed). Bathroom need serious updating..there were watermarks from old leaks on the ceiling..it was just a mess--the cleaner assigned to our room did the best she could but theres no hiding a good revamp of the whole place. If your looking for literally just a bed for ur back and to be by the water then this place is for u. Otherwise, dont look for any luxuries...

We stayed there for our vaca. Sandra checked us in and she was so nice. The rooms were kinda small but it was better than we expected and a great location. The parking kind of sucked because it was tight but if you can't afford a whole lot it's worth staying at. The other motels for this price are absolutely inhabitable

We went June 20th for three days and we loved it. The view was amazing the breeze we got off the water felt great. The room was very small but that's all we needed. We will return back in August
The board walk is right there we could walk to everything we also went fishing and went in the sea rocket that was the best everything we did we could walk to we didn't need to drive to many places the staff is very friendly and the manager is such a lovely women totally recommend this motel

This was a nice place. Low key nothing major If you need an iron or an ironing board you have to go to the front desk and ask them for it. A tad overpriced for what it was which was $129.00 The great thing was that the ocean was right outside the door the boardwalk was right around the corner beautiful beautiful sight nice breeze. Let me make you aware You will have guest and those guests are ants. Other than that It was a clean Motel very basic you can sleep in peace and just enjoy

I love this place. It has a awesome view of the inlet where the ocean meets the bay. If you reserve the inlet view room you can see the wild ponies right from the balcony. This motel is close to everything. Its close to the boardwalk, beach, sunset park, it has its own fishing pier, if you want to go parasailing or rent a wave runner its right next to it. if you want to ride a speed boat its right there too. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. It had a microwave and refrigerator. The inlet room was good enough for two people. The bathroom was clean. The price was a good value for the location and everything else that went with the motel. I enjoyed the pool as well. it was clean and really nice. I would recommend this motel. you just can't go wrong. The frog bar is also right across the street, serves good breakfast. The staff if really nice, we arrived early and they checked us right in to our room.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a awesome view, the inlet room on the island side is the best. and its very...
