My wife and I just had a most enjoyable 5 days at this quaint motel 2 short blocks from Moonlight Beach.Our third floor balcony (Rooms 307 and 308 are the rooms of choice) gave us a near commanding view of the ocean. The large room came with a fully equipped kitchen with all necessary utensils sans coffee maker in the room, and bath towels that are 100% cotton!Added to our enjoyment was the courtesies extended by hosts George and Deborah, who couldn't do enough for us to make our stay memorable. They provide muffins in the morning, beach chairs and umbrellas for those spending several days or more, and the use of several large grills on a patio. All rooms are smoke-free; families are welcome but a quiet period (9 P.M. to 9 A.M.) is generally observed, so if you want to party and 'howl at the moon' this is not the place for you
Will certainly stay there again.
