This was an absolutely GREAT place to stay, maybe not a brand new expensive high rise Motel, but the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living area were comfortable and well maintained, about a 2-3 minute walk to beach access, they provided free beach towels, umbrella, small cooler, anything we wanted, they would have given to us to use, free Parking also!!!...
