Pro's Close to beach Discount beach passes Manager was nice Con's Cancellation Policy Should fix up roof top could be nice Should replace and fix a few things in bathroom door wasn't hung properly, previous guest apparently melted a/c cover, shower could probably use replacing, toilet paper holder bar missing. Bottom line: It's a shore motel.

Needs some updating and some paint. The beachfront rooms were a lot nicer then the others but still could use some work. The outdoor deck was nice but also could use some updating. If I need to visit seaside height I would look to this hotel.

This hotel has changed names so many times, it's a wonder anyone can find it! If it wasn't for the picture on the internet, we would not have been able to find it, as there is another hotel named Charlee down the road, but it doesn't look like the picture on their website.
