I'm not sure if the other reviewers who gave this place an excellent rating have ever stayed in a motel before, but this property is not great. The rooms are painfully outdated and uncomfortable. The carpets are worn and dirty. (yes it's a beach motel but this was more than that) The beds are terribly uncomfortable and the pillows are encased in plastic. I'm not going to go on and on about it, just understand that the accommodations are terrible.
The location is great, and if you have a boat you could book a room here and sleep on the boat. The beach is walkable and is decent, but is very narrow down at this end of the Island. The pool is small but open late. The observation deck on either side of the upper level has some plastic lounges on it and was really the best part of the stay because there was somewhere comfortable to sit and chill at the end of the day that wasn't the room.
Do not stay here. If budget is your reason to consider this hotel, save up more money, have a garage sale, donate plasma, do whatever you have to do to stay anywhere else. This motel was $15 more expensive than the Quality Inn & Suites we stayed at in Gatlinburg on the way down and I will never stay here again.
