Overall I had a good experience. The staff was attentive and ready to assist. The owners/managers were the best part. Thank you.

Service was great, quick checkin, quick checkout, breakfast was complete and timely. The room was more than adequate, the bed and pillows were excellent. I slept well (its a quiet room). Considering the low cost of lodging, could not ask for more,

This is my second stay here. I only stay because of convenience. I can walk for the remainder of my visit. The rooms are dated and only maintained enough to get by. The free breakfast starts at 7:30. Bankers hours I guess. I am surprised that being part of Wyndham that it would be a little nicer. No flat TV....

It was very close the the beach. We took a walk to the Pier which was enjoyable. The motel was accommodating when we requested additional towels as well as a late checkout! We missed their free breakfast, but there was a Restaurant within walking distance too.
