After reading the reviews of the motel on TripAdvisor, we decided to book a night. The location is GREAT! Right on the beach! One thing I was worried about was not being able to sleep due to the roar of the ocean but with the windows closed, you couldn't hear a thing :-).
We were able to check in early & our "special" requests were filled w/o a problem.
This property offers 2 pools, hot tub, gym, laundry & what we enjoyed
most of all, the fire pits. They light them around 7:30 pm and let them burn 'til after about 11 pm or so. Sitting around the fire watching the sun go down was beautiful! We went back to the fire pits
later in the evening & had them to ourselves. No one was to be found outside after 10 pm LOL.
Our king size bed was SO COMFORTABLE! I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. The carpets were clean, the whole room was very clean. No bed bugs ;-). They provided a refrigerator & mini bar. All
the furniture looked pretty new. No weird smells in the room. The bathroom (toilet & shower area) were a bit small in our room but I'm sure they're much larger in the suites. The sink area was a decent size though, plenty of room for just two. They also provided a safe, ironing board, coffee / tea, hair dryer & wonderful Neutrogena soaps,
shampoos & lotion.
We got a GREAT DEAL on our room & had a wonderful view. All rooms have a view, which is nice :-). I peeked into other rooms and saw fireplaces too. We didn't have that but that was fine, no big deal.
We ate at the Cavalier restaurant right on the property for breakfast
the following morning. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was great & the prices were very reasonable. Our only little complaint was that there was lipstick on my boyfriends glass (yuck) when he ordered milk but our server apologized several times and brought him a fresh glass. We had also had some slices of pie the night before just for dessert. Their other desserts might be more tasty but I'd stay away from the pies.
We're definitely returning soon...it was a great stay!
