A friend recommended this motel. I didn't have many expectations going in, motels aren't usually my go-to choice. I was pleasantly surprised...friendly staff, great location, comfortable room. Parking was not an issue, there was a lot for guests next to the motel. Just a short walk to the beach, Jenk's boardwalk...and Martell's Tiki Bar, the meeting point for my stay.... More
