“Great value and location”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Right on the ocean next to the public beach access, the location was spectacular. Nice pool, very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was pet friendly, clean and non smoking. The room had a full size refrigerator. The furnishings were old as was the cracked sink and wall tiles. The ac was located right outside the bathroom door which made the bathroom freezing and did not cool the sleeping area well. Recommend you close the bathroom door at night which may solve this problem. Overall, the place is not fancy but the experience was terrific. Great value, perfect location, clean and friendly.

This motel was a steal. Everything, although out of date, was super clean. The rooms are great. Our was a two bedroom with a jack and Jill bathroom, great for families. They also have rooms with kitchenettes. It's right on the beach an the staff was so friendly. We will definitely be back! Oh! And they have a great pool which was also very clean.

Every at the front desk has been friendly and helpful
Maybe we're just at the tail-end of the season but it's not noisy at all.
Basic but clean ocean view room.
Couldn't ask for more.

If price and location are the most important features for you, this motel will satisfy you. Overall we had a good visit, mainly because the motel is located so close to the beautiful beach, just steps away in fact. The room rate was also quite affordable. And we had no problems with the staff.

What left us feeling let down was the quality of the room. We were happy to see that it was pretty clean but there are few amenities offered that travelers have come to expect. Such as an alarm clock, table lamps, iron, and a closet. Also, no extra blankets or pillows anywhere. There was only a metal rack hung from the wall for clothes and suitcases. A room safe would also be appreciated; without one you have to keep moving your valuables around, and hope they are safe.

The bathroom was bare bones too with no working lock on the door. When you're traveling with your kids, a working door lock comes in handy. There were no a/c vents in the bathroom which makes it hot and humid and hard to put makeup on, especially in August. The window in the bathroom is a far cry from safe, fitting loosely in the frame with a screen heavily covered in dust. It is really showing its age.

The worst feature of our room was the curtains. They are installed well below the ceiling and don't extend to the sides enough. The morning sunlight comes flooding into the room very early even when they are closed as well as you can get them to. So bring your eye shades if a bright room in the morning bothers you. On vacation, we don't like being awoken at dawn!

We talked to other guests who agreed that the oceanfront rooms on higher floors are highly preferred for the more quiet conditions they provide and distance from the pool. Guests do gather around the pool well into the evening, which is fine if you don't mind the noise. The motel has no elevator, which means you are lugging suitcases up and down steps. That is something we don't think they can or will change, but many of the other items could be added for guests' comfort.

It's wonderful that the people who work in this motel are nice and helpful but with so many challenges to cope with it's just not enough.

If they corrected these flaws we would visit the Vancouver again.

Room Tip: Higher floor oceanfront, not oceanview but expect to climb stairs

We stayed there from July 29-Aug 2nd and really enjoyed it. I already knew what to expect from their website and reading the reviews on here.
We requested a side view room. We were on the first floor which was great for us because we could easily bring our luggage straight from the car to our motel door.
The side view rooms include two queen beds which were comfortable. There were two tables. One positioned near the window and one on the other side. Which we used to keep our snacks and eat at as well. Two long dressers, mini fridge, and microwave. Tile floors. The bathroom was decent. Also one television and phone. The best part they had wi-fi. Also we have Sprint service and our cell worked great there. Just a reminder there is no coffee maker, alarm clock, hair dyer or iron. So if you need those things be sure to bring them.
All rooms are non-smoking. You can smoke outside. They have chairs set outside each door which we enjoyed using. My kids sat there to eat lunch and a few mins head back to the pool or beach. So they didn't have to go back in the room all wet. I liked sitting out there at night as well. A lot of other guest did too. Everyone was friendly with one another too. My kids were also given ice cream by someone that was staying there.
The maids were great. They stopped by every day seeing what we needed. They would clean the floors, change towels, and take out the trash.
The pool goes from 3ft to 7ft. They have plenty of chairs around the pool. You can also grill by the pool. The beach is just a few steps away from the property. They have a water hose to clean yourself off after being on the beach.
This motel doesn't have all the amenities you expect at a big motel/hotel, but it was perfect for us. We were there to enjoy the beach, the pool, and just needed a safe/comfortable place to stay. This was the place for us. We plan to come back again.

After reading the reviews I kinda knew what to expect...an older motel but clean right on the ocean...We paid extra money to have an oceanfront room but got a room on the very bottom floor couldn't see the ocean at all from our room! I think since you are paying for an oceanfront room w/ an ocean view you should be able to see the ocean so I was upset about that :( Room was older but seemed mostly clean...nothing too fancy not even a clock in the room but no big deal we just used our cell phones....The beach was very close and that was the best part about staying here!!! The staff was nice one guy who worked there even bought my 3year old an ice cream from the ice cream truck which was super nice!!

The 2nd day we were there a maid called & asked since we have pets if its ok she came in & cleaned....we informed her we didn't have pets and she said they have us marked down for pets....so after I went to the office & found out they did indeed charge us $10 extra a day for pets (which we didn't have) they had to issue an credit on our card....The maid came in and did a half job cleaning while we were still sitting there...then the next day she knocked on the door my husband was in there w/ my kids taking a lunchbreak and the maid said its just me i'll be back to clean but never returned!! Being a beachfront motel cleaning it daily is super important to me otherwise it gets extremely sandy!!!

Pretty much every single room is around the pool which had a closing time of 10pm however that was the hangout and party place...all the guests staying at the hotel seemed to hang outside their rooms and by the pool letting kids scream & yell all hours of the night!! Very disturbing at 11pm trying to get little kids to bed w/ all that going on outside! Thought it was a little odd the pool was in the middle of the complex so every room is right by it and even weirder that people just "hung out" right outside there room talking and screaming...One of the reasons I booked this room was to be in a family hotel a little more quiet than the strip area. Not a horrible experience here just wlll chose to stay somewhere else the next time

Room Tip: If booking a "oceanfront room" make sure its actually Oceanfront and on the 2nd or 3rd flo...
