This is our second time here in two years. Furnishings are simple ( don't come here expecting the Hyatt or Marriott), the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, there is on site parking (mostly covered), and the motel is located directly across from the beach. The only real and consistent negative is the musty odor in the rooms. Last year -- we changed rooms twice--the smell was rather strong. That same strong musty odor was present this year as well, but we were able to mostly ignore it ( this was a last minute booking and vacancies elsewhere were hard to find). We think the smell is from the carpets. A combination of moist sea air and the left over smoke residue from people who cook on the stoves in the kitchenettes. Whatever the cause, this same smell can be found in multiple rooms here. It's too bad, because otherwise, this is a very pleasant spot for a family stay. We, kids included, had a nice time overall, but perhaps the motel owners should consider removing the carpets from one room as an experiment, and putting in easy to clean hard tile flooring to see if that makes a difference. This place ( which does appear to be kept very clean) would be ideal if the rooms smelled fresh. Simple cleaning and vacuuming is not enough to solve the problem. Would I come back here again? My wife would not, since she is very sensitive to strong aromas. For myself, I would consider it again if it was a last minute booking and rooms were available.
