My dad and I have been staying here for 4 or 5 years now. The staff is lovely, easy parking and there is always free coffee and fruit in the check in area. But what I love the most is the "private beach area" (that's what I like to call it). You walk out from your room and there is... More

First I have to say that this is an old motel and needs a little TLC. It is what it is. We don't go to the beach to stay in our room so it's fine for us. If you are looking for a luxury room this isn't it. We've been staying here for 5 years every summer and just love... More

Staff was very friendly/accommodating Cheap motel for a SHORT trip BUT....Room was pretty dirty, it could use a thorough cleaning Location/view was the only worth but I guess you get what you pay for Only stayed 3 nights or we would have checked out before we even checked in

We are just leaving from a 4 day stay. We parked the car and never had to get back in it, close enough to walk to the beach with all chairs and coolers in hand. The fishing pier was a ton of fun with my kids catching tons of fish and crab. And the pool was perfect to cool off... More

Great location and staff, pool is nice, but the motel needs TLC. Room was tiny and the bathroom was even smaller. The carpets are gross. The wifi is horrible. Free parking is limited. The sunset view on the bay is absolutely amazing. It's unfortunate the condition of the motel takes away from the pros. I will not return.

Myself, son and boyfriend recently stayed here. We got an inlet suite...room 12. The ad was misleading because we are not right on the inlet...there is a whole parking lot between us and the inlet, so when there are cars parked you really can't see it well. The room was grungy and out dated. Although we did not have any... More

We actually stayed here 2 years in a row. Trying to get back again this year (2016). Second time around we sprung for a bay view room and what a view we had!! Plenty of room for me and my wife. Bought food and drinks to keep in the fridge and cook in the microwave. The front desk staff was... More
