My husband planned a birthday weekend for me and our young son. We camped two nights at Beachside State Park and then spent two nights at the Silver Surf. The Motel is just what you would expect after reading Trip Advisor (indeed, this is how my hubs chose the place for us). We saw many, many whales from our dog-friendly room. The pool is older, but very clean and a nice addition. Wifi is super-weak and virtually useless, but we made due with 3G or E on our iPhones. The kitchenette's are just enough, but we had to dig into our camping gear in order to have an oven-friendly pot for dinner one night. The room was exceptionally clean, but I still avoid touching those older hotel bed-spreads places like these use. Overall, we plan to return someday. Our weather was unusually sunny and warm, but I imagine a blustery fall or winter stay would be cozy and pleasant too.
I might ask for a second floor room so that you don't have anyone thumping overhead.
