Seldom stay in older motels, due to musty,dank smells, but inspection found no bad odors, even from the Surf's window air-handler unit! The IrishRover review was submitted a couple weeks before our '1st of Apr.' arrival,on our way to MD frm FL, & I believe all their complaints have been remedied! A few guests of this approx. 50-unit motel, stayed on the balcony quite late, but they were either extremely quiet, or with the din of the fan, we didnt notice! It felt like home with the slightly faded, soft, clean, all cotton bedspread, that will never contaminate, & was appreciated during our two cool nights! The pool was warm, and MUCH cleaner than the identical one at the nextdoor motel. Was tickled to be able to preserve our FL citrus in a crisper drawer of our fridge, & to be able to chill & reheat our doggie-bag goodies, late at night, while watching tv, was a real bonus for our $32! Tho a wkday, didnt notice any noise frm airport, & unless one desired full seclusion, no more quiet or convenient location was observed by this retired pair! With stagnant income, & helping family members, this place was a treasure to us, including the few flecks of wear in the still effective dark drapes! We watched guests arriving, being greeted like family, & assumed they were! After speaking to several however, we found most were just regular 'regulars,' whom had vacationed here for 10 or more years, & just feel like family!! Like them, we plan to return again; well worth the minor flaws that age brings! My ONLY wish would have been for a small window to open, to hear the ocean, & feel the heavenly breeze! But Alas, 'progress' has 'sealed us in,' I suppose, as guests became negligent in performing the simple act of closing windows, when appropriate! Be sure to whistle at the two friendly parrots across the street, at the large, yet quaint breakfast/lunch cafe!
View frm 1st or lower floors ocean front, may not clear the dunes, but well worth the few dollars mo...
