The Strathmere Motel feels like a 50's roadside motel. It's definitely no frills, and you shouldn't expect anything else. Bring your own pillow, for sure. And expect road noise, if the windows are open.
The motel is a short block to the beach, which is massive and doesn't require a beach badge. They have a hammock and other chairs/tables in the "back yard", and the rooms on the 2nd floor have a patio with tables/chairs as well.
Good breakfast place a few blocks away.
Owner was there most of the weekend, checking people in and repairing some stuff.
Our room had a really nice tribute to a fallen Marine from Afghanistan. Assume the other rooms did as well. Marine and Irish flags are flying proudly on the site of the motel.
If you have the right expectations, you should enjoy the stay.
