Very basic, extremely clean rooms. The pool is very nice and clean, too. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's fairly close to the beach but it was too far to walk with all our stuff - chairs, cooler, etc. The are lots of parking spaces near the beach on the side streets. We would definitely come back!

This is a great place that is minutes from the beach! We rented a suite that slept 10 people very comfortably. It is a family friendly environment with a very clean pool. the staff is friendly and do provide towels daily. It is in walking distance to the beach, stores, and restaurants. It is not a very romantic spot but it is great if you are planning on bringing the kids along.

Room Tip: The rooms on the end have more space.

My husband, daughter and her friend,and I stayed 4 nights in a room with 2 double beds. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The room had a small fridge and a microwave which came in handy to save a little on eating out every meal. There is a small grocery store a couple of blocks down. The location was good for us. You could cross the street in a crosswalk and then it was a short walk to the beach which was not nearly as crowded as the main strip by the pier on down. We saved money staying here which helped since you have to pay pretty much everywhere you park other than the motel. We had a really nice time and hope to return again next year. The only complaint I had is the parking spaces at the motel are really tight.

One of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. The place is a little older, but who cares. The staff is very friendly, even loaned me a hair dryer. See y'all again!

Double Tree,Peabody,Hilton........This is not for you,keep looking. If you want to expierience the early days of motor lodging, this is it. Small rooms,very clean,comfortable bed,nice flat pillows,super clean swimming pool.Towels were supplied daily,attentive staff.We stayed the week-end of Memorial Day,May 25-28 20012. Trop storm Beryl provided nice breezes,and lots of big waves at the beach,very little rain.If your itinerary is to stake out at the beach,enjoy good restaurants,do some shopping,this place will do just fine.We returned exhausted every day,only to find this to be a nice oasis of comfort.Had a few drinks at the pool every evening while the grand kids spent their last reserves of energy We had a party of six,and two rooms,no complaints at all.Be sure to bring your own coffe.

This was a terrible stay. My wife and I checked in around 5 p.m on a Friday. No one was in the lobby but the front desk lady KATHY COOK was on the phone over 20 mins and just ignored me. Finally we got our room which was terrible. Sleeping on the ground would have been more soft. Terrible pillows and decor all together. Smallest room ive ever stayed in. During special time instead of calling my room we got a knock from front desk. Then again 5 mins later and there was a note on my door. Unprofessional as can be. Paying over a hundred bucks for this type of stay was uncalled for. My advice save up for a vacation and stay elsewhere or off the beach. Sleep in the ocean would be a better idea than this hotel.Also the shower wouldn't drain.

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel is my tip
