I not only stayed here but I lived in nearby for 9 years. This is a good (and safe) location if you plan on having some beach time without breaking the bank. My night here was $75. They told me there is a no pet policy, but I see others have posted they brought pets. There are 3 floors and elevators, which is nice. My room had a mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and full size ironing board and iron. Not every light worked, and the carpet was the worst part. It had serious stains that looked like decades of dirt. They really need replacing. The bed was comfy, and in spite of the fact my room faced the interstate, it was quiet.
There is a pool and hot tub (both small) with handicap lift, and a tidy breakfast nook across form the pool. The free breakfast has fruits, cereal, oatmeal, pastry, bagels, bread, and juice, tea and coffee.
The room seemed to lack outlets for plugging in laptop or electronics. I could not find any except in the bathroom.
Given all that, this is a budget motel, and other hotels in this area go for well over $100 a night. It could use some updating, but the place is safe, comfortable and decent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back. It is more private and even quieter than the front-facing rooms. Alt...

This property went through many changes and one of those changes were regarding the pet policy. At one point, we had a no pet policy but decided to change the policy so we do accept pets; in addition, we have specific pet designated rooms with a pet fee of $35.00. Management is aware of the conditions of the carpet and we are budgeting to replace all of them for 2014. We are also aware of the limited amount of electrical sockets in the room and we are doing our best to resolve this issue. We hope that you will visit us again in the near future to see the changes we are doing to this property.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and found the staff to be very accommodating and friendly. We brought our dog for no extra fee! I would stay at this hotel again.
