The motel right on the beach had lovely views. I think, judging from the decor, the place was last updated in the early 1970's. From the k-mart quality bed coverings in rust and floral tones to the harvest gold toilet ( which was VERY low.....you think you are falling before you finally land on the seat !) to the melamine laminate countertops, the place has seen better days. There are no alarms/clock radios, so come prepared. The motel was clean. The infrastructure is failing; exterior walls in one area not finished, peeling paint off of posts all point to signs of neglect. We believe the resident owners/caretakers are getting on in years and simply cannot keep the maintenance up. In the morning, the traffic noise from the highway, which is no more than 15 feet from the motel is quite loud.
