We booked the Sea Spray last minute. It was only one of two motels available (online anyway) and I am glad we chose this one. While the room was a bit dated it was extremely clean! We had a large room with two queen beds, table and chairs, fridge, microwave, and decent sized bathroom.
The location was awesome, a short walk across the street to the beach and a couple of blocks to the bay. Very close to Fantasy Island and lots of restaurants.
There was ample parking and the heated pool was great. There were also some games by the pool area and some pool toys for the kids. The barbecues were also in the pool area and although we did not use them they looked immaculate.
We were able to use the beach badges for the rest of the day after we checked out which was great.
My only suggestions for improvement would be to get some real sized bath towels. They were like large hand towels. And maybe designate a smoking area or insulate the rooms better, our neighbors smoked ten packs a day outside their room and its all we could smell in our room. Other than that our stay was great and we will be back.
Prices were what you would expect to pay at peak season near the beach. If you are expecting a five star resort based on all the glowing reviews on trip advisor you will be disappointed. Expect a clean, well maintened, beach motel with the basic amenities you need for a great beach vacation and you will be very happy choosing this motel.
