We can see why people rate this motel as terrible. They are the same people who think the Sandcastle is the greatest place on the beach. There are Sandcastle people and there are Seaside people. Just like some wouldn't live on the south side of San Antonio and some wouldn't live on the north side. We love Seaside for what it is, not what it isn't. It's the south side. It's a lot of friendly people out walking their dogs with their baggies in hand. It's families and birthday groups and friendly staff in the office. It's a place where everyone minds their own business and leaves you to yours. It's NOT snobby desk staff who you have to ring to get their attention, visitors who pride themselves on how much their condo costs (instead of how little), an empty pool and empty rooms, and a newspaper rack with no papers available unless you are an owner.
We love our condo in 201, but we have been happy in a plain little room before we started getting this condo. The ceilings are chipped, the floor is cracked, the place is old. Who cares? It's clean and totally bug free and has the most comfortable beds and the perfect views of sunrise, sunset, and the ocean. And it's reasonable. We looked a long time for a better price and didn't touch it for the benefits. And we appreciate the personal touch of Melissa and Terry. Don't let the northsiders chase you away.
