It's a perfectly OK motel, but was surprised to find it not on the beach but across the highway and with a parking lot in front. Since the rooms open to the view and we were first room off the stairs, everyone going to their rooms coming and going stared into ours or walked in front of us when we sat in the chairs outside. The room was a standard-sized motel room with a smaller than normal bathroom and the kitchenette had been wedged and stacked into closet space. Small fridge, microwave on top of that and toaster and coffee machine on top of that. Two burners on other side of the room, right next to the sink, so no room to actually prepare anything, but ok for heating stuff up.
Still, the view was nice and the owner had two very comfortable chairs seated on either side of a round table in front of the window. He also gave us suggestions on a couple of things to do.
He offers an inexpensive continental breakfast, which is pretty meager, but the price was low.
The location is very close to Forillion Park, so handy for hikers.
To sum it up, we found it perfectly clean, it did have a view, and OK all around--just wasn't the "stupendous" place I had been expecting from reviews.
