I'm not really a motel person, so when I begrudgingly booked SBM for a visit with family, I had few expectations. However, this turned out to be the perfect spot for my needs.
1) Room was clean and tidy, spacious. Bathroom was recently remodeled with granite sink. All in all, the room looked more like a Hampton Inn than a motel.
2) Balcony: perfect for drying bathing suits and towels and airing out workout gear.
3) Flat screen TV with free (cheesy) on demand movies. This kept kids entertained at night without having to shell out bucks for a movie.
4) In-room fridge. Although I had the same model 20 years ago in my dorm room, this fridge was clean and kept our waters cold.
5) Our kids LOVED the pool. It was clean and although it was right on the highway, it was pretty private. The kids wanted to go there every day.
6) Homemade muffins. They were warm and plentiful. We did not have them every day, but when we didn't, we took an easy walk across the street to the Hearth & Kettle where I would recommend the applewood smoked bacon.
7) Less than a 5-minute run to the bike trail. (see #2)
8) Location: we were at bay and ocean beaches within minutes.
The recommendation I would have for the owners is to upgrade the beds and pillows. A few nights on the beds and both my and my husband's backs were sore. There were extra blankets and pillows in the closet.
