If you're looking for a no-frills, no nonsense place to stay that is within walking distance of the beach, then this is the place for you. It's a bare necessities motel - no coffee for the coffee pot, no shampoo in the bathroom, no phone on the nightstand. We couldn't hear a thing from the rooms on either side of us (could have been because they weren't occupied) but every noise outside came into our room loudly and as clear as day. The motel-style outside access encourages guests to sit on the curb and chat - fellow guests woke us up every morning at 6:00am with their laughter. And the a/c unit was the most obnoxious contraption I've ever seen. It sounded like it was full of sand when it was on and clanged about every two minutes. And that was WHEN it was working. Housekeeping changed the sheets every day, but there was still sand in the bed every night. My boyfriend loved the TV and all of the channels, but he couldn't sleep through the a/c noise. We were seriously dissatisfied with our first room, and asked for another. They gladly changed it for us, although they openly admitted that they'd given us one of their least desirable rooms on purpose, as they were having a hard time getting other guests to settle on it. VERY close to the beach. Ocean view rooms aren't worth the extra money. GO PREPARED FOR THE NO-FRILLS. And know that there are limited eating options within walking distance. I wouldn't stay here again - it's not worth the money. This should be a $99/night hotel. Could probably have found something in the same price range with better amenities.
