“Quiet and Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Excellent, friendly staff. Housekeeping does a great job keeping the property clean. The rooms are large and the kitchenette stocked with everything needed is a real bonus. They have renovated recently and while everything is nice the painters did a terrible job. There was paint on the floor tiles, and kitchen counters, the closet doors were already peeling. But they are trying and this is just a small complaint that did not affect our wonderful stay. We hope to return soon!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top(5th) floor and loved the view.

It is nice to go where you feel welcomed. We want you to feel like family when you visit us at Beachside Motel and I am very happy that you enjoyed staying with us. Being able to cook in your room with the fully equip kitchen is just like being at home, but with the awesome view of the ocean! Hope to see you soon.

may be if I had paid twice as much I could find some problems about which to complain but for what I did pay I have very few issues. The place is a bit dated but they have been/are refurbishing and that helps a lot. The rooms are great--relatively large, over-look the ocean and directly on the beach--and well appointed w/ full kitchen and decent amenities (& nice little touches like tooth-paste in the baths). As for the people you would have to work to find a friendlier bunch that is more than willing to go out of their way to accomodate you--and do it w/ a smile and general caring. The place is also as clean as an older property located directly on the beach could be and they really work to keep it that way. And there is always fresh coffee available in the lobby.
Now then.....all is not "beer & skittles". The towels are a poly/cotton blend instead of 100% cotton and the mattresses (supposedly they are being replaced) are not the most comfortable. The televisions are older and have a tendency to get "fuzzy" when other appliances are used and there are not a lot of kitchen utensils supplied (I under-stand people steal them. I take my own so it was not an issue for me and I am certain if you asked they would be supplied but keep that in mind if you plan to cook) There is no counter space so prep work is difficult. I realize most use the kitchen for little more than re-heating so it is not a real problem but some thing to remember. These issues are minor compared w/ the good points and the main question is "would I stay here again?" and the answer is a definite yes and would suggest others do as well w/ an under-standing of the minor issues.

Room Tip: Get a higher room for better views but if you have kids you might want the first floor that opens di...

Our thanks to the entire staff- Christine and Tiffany were charming and gracious. There only desire was to make sure we had everything we needed- and went above and beyond to help us out, ensuring a stress free stay. Since we were there for a funeral, their help made it so much
easier to deal with. Their helping us out with airline check in saved us precious minutes at the airport. The new rooms look great, too. Well done, thank you from the entire family-

Stayed two nights. Will definitely return in 2013. Located on the beach in a quiet area. Currently being updated with new paint, new carpets, drapes, etc. The staff was very friendly and made us feel welcome.

I stayed here during the past weekend. Great place go stay. A little dated, but I would stay again. The staff is excellent. You are far enough way from everything but still close. All in all awesome stay.

The staff are everything the others said, the property while CLEAN is getting a little worn. No worries, the staff showed me the new color scheme that will be for the newly remodeled rooms they are doing for this property! All new appliances everything.

One pet peeve with any coastal hotel is the "no flush" toilets! This has nothing to do with the hotel, our friends in government think it is more efficient to flush 3 times than once. The answer is to keep your ice bucket full of water and pour it into the water tank while flushing, works good!
