This is clean, friendly quirky accommodation at a reasonable price. After staying in some terrible places run by the major chains I wish there was somewhere similar in every town in the USA. It's a lovingly renovated old fashioned motel, with the friendliest people running it - nothing is too much trouble. I love the way that the character of the old place has been brightened up whilst keeping many of the original features - I particularly liked the original tiles in the small but perfectly adequate shower room - like the rest of the place, going back in time without many of the down sides. This is probably the cleanest and freshest place I have stayed in during many visits to the states, possibly enhanced by the Scandinavian style furnishings which along with the beds I think work well.
The downside is the location, on a busy junction, with difficult access. However, the noise from the road did not disturb me, and I'm usually bothered by such things. It's a short drive into Venice, which is a nice little seaside town.
So, if you are expecting a traditional resort type place to spend your time in the pool, I'd think again, but if you need an overnight stay or a base to explore the area, then this is great.
