The Beachview Inn is your typical mom/pop beach motel. We had read reviews on here before going, so we knew what to expect!
Parking was $5 for our stay, but across the street, they were charging $15 for the day for beach-goers. The place was dated, furniture was old and worn, and the kitchenette was something I would NEVER use! We were on the second floor, right next to the pool, although there was no pool noise. We could see the beach and ocean, but if we were up another level or two, the view would have been much better. It was nice to have easy access to the beach. Since we were right over the lobby, we were able to get wifi from there, but if we were farther away, they would have charged us.
At check-in, the attendant tried to charge us an extra $10 for our son, who is 12 years old. CRAZY! It's not like he has a credit card/id and could check into his own room! The manager yelled from the back room that we wouldn't be charged. Based on reviews, we didn't even go to the breakfast in the morning, I don't think we were even up in time- it was 7-9am only. We did have dinner at Crabby's next door, it was very good.
Bring your own soap and shower items, the soap they gave us was horrible, and the tissues were like sandpaper!
We would stay here again, but only for one night at a time- can't imagine staying a week or so. The place was fine for one night!
