    The motel is located just outside the Main Street and a block away from the ocean. The service on arrival was excellent and we couldn’t have asked for more. The room had everything we needed and was clean, tidy and spacious.

    We love coming to the Sandpiper on a bi-annual basis for short getaways. It’s not cheap, but the rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of beach and town. Highly recommended!

    So there were lots of positive reasons for this guest to return. Our air conditioning units do produce hot as well as cold air but perhaps this guest was not aware of that fact.
