Opened the door to find a reasonable clean room, apart from the pubic hair in the shower! It also stank of smoke, and was very basic. The main reason I do not recommend is because I didn't feel safe. It felt like a bad area, Police arrived to arrest someone whilst we we're going out for something to eat not... More

It is very close walking distance to restaurants and the pier. The room itself was small , needs updating and a new lock for the door. The deadbolt on the door doesn't lock it just spins. I had to place a chair under the knob with my luggage to ensure no one could come in. It was priced high for... More

The staff is extremely is rude, its noisy, the staff gets irritable if you tell them something is wrong, and I know a guy that told them he wanted no room service--they went in anyway, and they took a towel of his. When he complained, they said he could never come back because he complained. This manager lady runs it... More

There were 8 people ahead of me waiting to check in when we got there at 6pm. Staff were friendly and the room is very simple. They have ice and vending machine by the office. Denny's and a gas station is next door. The motel is less than 10 minute drive from the beach. There were a lot of families... More

This motel is the worst place we have ever stayed at. Electric cables hanging out the wall. Cover to fan in bathroom hang down from the sealing. Dirty glows in the bathroom. It was loud we could hear everything in the rooms next to us and above. This motel don't deserve a single star. I had to give it one... More

You get what you pay for. It's just ok. Nothing extra at all. Paper thin walls. The guests on the top had a fight and kept us awake half the night. But the beds were ok and the room was clean. If you're here for the outlet, it's right across the street.

The rooms are never ready and people had to wait in the lobby or parking lot. They paint the shower floors instead of cleaning them. The rooms are very tiny and there are not microwaves or coffee pots. The pool is not heated.

We checked in around 4:30pm and were told that the room was ready! We went to the room and advised reception that there were no towels in the room, we had travelled all day and were dying for a shower, we were told someone would bring towels up as soon as they were finished in the dryer. Four hours later... More

This is a motel for smokers. Do not let the available of non-smoking rooms mislead you. After I complained about the horrible odor in the room they gave me, they claimed their computer did not indicate I had asked for a non-smoking room. No, it was not my mistake it was theirs. Do not trust them. After you make your... More
