Stayed here July 10th weekend for our anniversary. Awesome retro/shabby chic motel room with neat kitchen efficiency. The room had a king size bed with a separate room with a modern sectional pull out couch. You could easily sleep two kids on couch without pulling it out. Cute little chandelier above couch. Flat screen tv, free coffee, microwave, fridge. Excellent AC. Walls were aqua blue and very cool. If I had to be picky, bathrooms a little cramped, with very little shelving for toiletries and shower was unusual and a little hard to figure out. Never could get the shower head to stop dripping, although housekeeping did it everytime, they cleaned the room. Also, you can use the facilities after checking out. There are shower facilities by pool and by the motel. The other best thing about this motel/hotel (free parking outside room) was that it is owned by Congress hall across the small street and you are entitled to use all the facilities there. At the pool and beach, unknown to us, no need to pack beach chairs, towels, they provide all. Really nice to go to the beach (across the street) and be catered to.They provide umbrellas/tables/lounge chairs/towels at beach if you want. At the pool, we ordered lunch and drinks. Staff was very accommodating, moving umbrellas for shade. Definitely worth the extra $ for this motel. Found room as a last minute deal for about $350/room.
Side note: The kids at the beach and pool are so courteous and accommodating, dragging out heavy lounge chairs with towels and umbrellas on the beach to your location of choice. Why not give them a small tip? We saw many people who did not and the kids were amazingly professional and didn't blink an eye. One day we tried to tip a manager for getting us extra towels and she refused, saying it was her job. What an amazing attitude. Even at Four SEasons/Maui, the beach boys would hesitate and wait for a tip!
