To start off, the only positive thing that this motel has going for it is its location right on the beach. But other than that, I wholeheartedly agree with everything that Tim J wrote, and I also am sorry to be posting a negative review. Just returned from one night at this motel and we will never return.
When we first checked out our assigned room we heard a dog yelping and barking in a nearby room. We went back to the reception and learned that this hotel allows pets. We did not know that, it is not listed in the brochure. Normally we avoid hotels that allow pets because of allergies, and because we don't like to sleep in a room where a pet has done who knows what.
The person at the reception called the room where the dog was staying, but there was no answer. Clearly the dog owners had left it in the room by itself, which is against the motel's "policy" (posted on little signs everywhere).
We insisted being moved to another room. We were re-assigned to a room on the ground floor. In the middle of the night the people in the room above us decided to have a loud party. Since the walls and ceilings are paper-thin, it's like we were in the party. We called the reception, but there was no answer. You're totally on your own in this place.
After a bad night's sleep, we checked out the promised "Continental breakfast". Well, it's a joke: coffee, tea, orange juice, and several boxes of donuts and muffins strewn around the reception area. No tables to sit at, just a big old couch.
The motel boasts that it has been in business for 40 years. Well, it sure has not been updated in all those 40 years.
Our advice: do not stay here.
