I thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at this motel last September during the Truck & Light Show; nice owners, clean rooms, very basic. Definitely needs some remodeling & updating inside. Beds comfortable. I am surprised they don't have a frig in the rooms. You can't beat the view and location. Bridge, beach, park, lighthouse all right at your fingertips. Very nice pool, well kept grounds. Nothing like listening to the waves roll up onto the beach. Quiet. However, upon my 2nd visit, though I had the same room, I wasn't quite as impressed this time. Very few people there and I think I made the mistake of reserving a room; I should have just known there would be availability and then tried to get the room I wanted (the end room with either the balcony on 2nd or the deck on 1st) and try to negotiate the rate. It is not worth $140 a night at that time of year at all. Our balcony was plastered with mosquitos and impossible to sit out on. Probably not a solution to that, but rates should be adjusted for such. There are several small mom and pop motels in town and many have continental breakfast-some with views, some not, but much lower rates. So is a toss up-if you can get a good rate, do stay here, but do check with others in town, also.
