Been here two years in a row. Yea, the rooms might be outdated but they are clean. We don't book the room to spend time in it or watch TV. We are here to sight see, its an adult group and we are here to have fun! Plus we like the freedom we get by able to sit outside in a group and enjoy our adult beverages. We will always stay here.

This place has seen its age. Its dark and run down. You may find a great price here but not worth it. There are other places near by to stay at. The rooms are small and dirty. It needs a whole new overhall done.

There is plenty to complain about with this motel, but it is GOTL. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep that is on the beach and the strip, this could be your place. Debbie has checked us in the past few years and is friendly and easy going. She is willing to assist you with any questions that you might have. We have stayed here numerous times over the years, but unfortunately, the last room we had might be the last time we stay there. The carpet was a little sticky and the a/c might have gotten my wife sick. We love GOTL and Debbie is very nice, but the motel needs some TLC.

Room Tip: Stay on the Lake side.

Would NEVER RECOMMAND to anyone!!!!!! Not even the dog!!!! The rooms are out of date and I think they furnished it from a thirft store or Good Will. It had a very musty odor to it and the beds we're terrible to sleep on ,if you could sleep at all. The pool outside our cottage wasn't very clean either.

Room Tip: Stay closer to water, at least the view would be better and maybe smell better too.

Rooms were okay. Clean, smelled good. Carpeting stained but expected
Bathroom. clean,
Sheets. Clean, smelled good
Comfort of bed - felt hard when you sat down, but surprising we slept very good.
Excellent view, and we parked and walked to everything.
Will stay here again soon!!
Food was awesome next door!!
Best part of our experience was the staff. From the moment we pulled up, the staff was friendly, and helpful. Nicest people you'll every meet.

Rooms were dirty. We weren't able to open the windows. I have nothing against motorcycles, but, they were parked outside our door at all times..Blankets looked like the weren't washed for 15 years, falling apart. No service. Had to ask for towels, only to find the office person drinking with some bikers. I could go on and on...The room reminded me of the movie vacancy..

Was barely worth staying...but we did. The sheets were clean and the bathroom was passable. The location, easy walk to lots of restaurants and entertainment, and the view with the sound of the surf were the ONLY redeeming features.

Room Tip: ask to look at the room first. Bring your own pillows and cup/glass for water.
