I came here for a week long family vacation. Let me just say this place was awful!!! I don't know how this place gets any reviews that are over 1 star. First of all you make think it's a cheap hotel but it's really not, you can find closer hotels to the beach that are cheaper. You have to walk... More

Stayed five nights during July, 2013. Efficiency apartment was clean and well maintained. Ample Parking, spotless pool and friendly and pleasant office staff. Minute walk to the tourist strip. Can't beat it for the price! For travels on a budget, this is the place!

The room my husband and I were in was very clean. There were no roaches or any other type of bugs and the beds, bathroom and kitchenette clean. The price is reasonable. I must admit, after reading other peoples comments, I was leary, however, you just have to check it out for yourself, in which we did and was pleased.... More

Beware of this NASTY motel. I cried when we got here and most of the next day - I wanted a nice, relaxing get-away weekend. Boy were we in for a surprise. It was the dirtiest motel I have ever stepped foot in. It smelled like vomit, and the walls were "textured" in some type of filth." I did not... More

Not bad at all for the cost. Motel is dated but everything was in working order. Room was clean. No bugs or any of that as other reviews state. Short walk to beach. Would stay again if funds were limited. Staff nice as well.
