I have been going here to spend my last few days of summer with my bestest friend from Ohio, my Mom, and sister for quite a few years now. We love staying here as we are right on the most beautiful beach and the rooms at this motel are wonderful! We sit out on the balcony every nite and just...

Great place to stay. Only 6 rooms. Right on the beach. Oceanfront rooms. Mike the owner is nice. Walking distance to resturants and grocery store right across street. Have stayed here for number of years and always love to come back.

I was torn in writing this review but wanted to represent my experience fairly. Pros: The location is spectacular and right on the beach. There is a grocery store right across the street. The deck off our room was great for morning coffee and evening ice cream. The owner who manages the motel is friendly and very helpful. Cons: the...

My family just spent 6 days here and it was perfect for what we needed it for. Rooms were clean, nothing fancy, but a basic room that gave you a nice, clean place to sleep! We were able to leave our tent up at the beach and nobody bothered it, so that saved a lot of work! The location was...

First of all, I'll start with the cons: 1.) Out of the three days we were here, the owner was barely even here. He was the only person who had a key to the office, so we were unable to get more toilet tissue (we had to buy a pack from the store) & we couldn't get more towels. 2.)...

these pictures are for the person that asked how our stay was and what the rooms looked like. I agree with someone else that the ones that had a bad room and stay must have had a bad hair day because I didn't find anything like that!

Talk about a motel! I rented a room for 8 days here with my Mom, sister, and bestest friend and we had such a wonderful time! Right on the beach and across the street from the best grocery store anyone would want! The place is so peaceful, we sat out almost every nite on the deck and just listened to...

What an awesome time! Location, location, location! This place is close to everything you need - the grocery store, breakfast, Toucan's and the beach! The room had a great view and you step off right onto the beach! The owner made extra efforts to make us happy and the other customers as well. I left Saturday, 6/6/15 and would have...

NOT recommended (Buena Vista Motel). When one needs rest and recuperation due to health issues, a beach trip can aid the healing process. Therefore, accommodations become a very important asset for such a trip. This place was filthy, run down, ill-kept. After driving hours, arriving late and after office hours, the room key was not in the room as owner...
