Dear Achbar- Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and have taken note of some recent improvements in our guest rooms. Every year we work on updating both the interior and exterior facets of the property. One thing we have realized when choosing decorative bed coverings is that although we love the feel of a natural fiber it just does not hold up well to the frequent machine washing that is necessary. I have passed along your comments regarding the sofa to our housekeeping staff and assure you they will address that promptly. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

The Cove Motel is situated on the Town Cove. Rooms are clean and ours had a small fridge and microwave. It's a beautiful location and is close to shopping, beaches and wonderful restaurants. The staff is very friendly and you immediately feel welcome. Highly recommend staying
