Stayed here with 2 young kids because we were looking for something affordable. This place is a very basic motel and is in dire need of an update. The lobby is nice but the only thing updated in the rooms in 30 years is a curved shower curtain rod and the electronic key system. The non-smoking room smelled like old man BO, so much so that we asked for another room and that one (also on the 1st floor) smelled just as bad so we didn't move. (It was clear we weren't the first people to complain about the odor because the woman at the desk offered to run a ionizer in the room while we were out to dinner and stated, "That usually helps." It didn't.) Maybe it's a first floor thing as they don't allow pets on floors 2 and 3. The large but old tube TV had a huge scratch in the screen, there was an old dark water stain on the bathroom ceiling that looked like it could have been moldy at one time, and we found a takeout container of ranch dressing under one of the beds.
The rooms were large, harbor view is nice, it is very quiet, and the outdoor pool was warm (our 5 yr old enjoyed swiming in it). The hot tub and 1st floor ice machine were broken and the free Wi-Fi only worked in the lobby. The continental breakfast had a nice selection but was nothing to write home about.
Though the staff was nice, I wouldn't stay here again nor recommend it simply based on the smelly rooms. We are back home now and washing everything we had in the suitcase.
