If you are looking for fancy 5 star rooms, look somewhere else. If you are looking for a clean, good sized room within spitting distance to the ocean water, this is your place. The rates are more than reasonable, they are down right cheap for ocean front. The pool and hot tub are always clean and warm, and the staff is always friendly. We stay here about 6 times a year, and never think about staying anywhere else.

I took my son for his 15th birthday and we both fully enjoyed the time we spent there. My son especially liked swimming in the pool, broken leg and all and the hot tub. we didn't want to leave and come home. Wish we could have stayed another couple of days. We hope to return soon. We were pleasantly surprised that the motel had been updated and redone. It was clean, cozy and the bed was very comfortable.

Pro: It's our favorite place to stay at the beach . It's great you can see the ocean from the hot tub and pool inside so you stay warm :)
Also beach access is EASY! A sloping ramp which goes directly onto the sand within less than a block walking distance.
Usually quiet area most people stay in the upper part of town so that is a plus because it is not crowded.
Tables to sit at and benches is you do not wish to venture onto the beach. You can sit and watch it from those or from your car.
Balcony to watch the sunset from outside the room.
We have stayed her e numerous times over the last 20 years.
The staff is GREAT!

Drawbacks..UNFORTUNATELY HERE THEY ARE....
THE STAIRS THEY ARE AWFUL! CEMENT AND LONG 2 AND 3 FLIGHTS NO ELEVATOR!
I am allergic to smoke so cannot do the bottom rooms.
. It may make me not be able to go again because of it. No elevator or ramp.

Also the chairs in the room are AWFUL!
They are HARD! They cut my circulation off. I am short so for me that makes it harder. Someone taller would not notice probably.
They need to be changed but since we are not in the room much it is not too bad. They need to at least add a foot stool or something.
The rooms are very small. The fireplace rooms added later are better so ask for a newer unit.
My feet and legs hurt so badly from sitting on them after 3 days.
OUCH!
The bed was too high to put my feet on. One time we brought a foot stool but 3 flights of stairs made it very difficult. I hurt sooo badly when I left.

I have been staying at this hotel at least once a year for the past 10 years. The rooms offer a great view of the beach and ocean.

I was absolutley impressed with this motel. The room was very cozy. The ocean view was spectacular. Sooo close to the beach. You literally stepped onto the sand. We stayed on the 3rd level. Had a balcony with a fridge, microwave and fireplace. My 5 year old grandson loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Customer service was exceptional. This is definatley a keeper. The prices were extremly reasonable compared to the accomodations, ocean and views. I would highly recommend this facility.
