We booked based on price and reviews and were not disappointed. This is not a new high rise, but a cute, small, old school motel. We have stayed at other Mom&Pops in the area but this one really outclasses them. It is old, but bright, cheerful, well-kept and most of all-clean and Kathy is sincerely friendly and nice! Some small niceties impressed me: towels are not skimpy, but more like towels you would use at home, beds were comfortable (felt like memory foam but I didn't take them apart to see), the efficiency actually had an oven (usually only see cooktops), bathroom was a good size for a small motel, balcony was large enough for 3 chairs and a side table with room to spare. In fact, the efficiency had a total of 8 chairs so somebody wasn't always having to sit on the bed. Motel rules refer to quiet time at night; didn't see a need for enforcement, but I believe it would be. I booked through Oceana online reservations, and check in was smooth. We appreciated the free Wild Water & Wheels passes--look at their website and check out the admission prices there-great value to get free with the room. The only drawbacks have to do with the age of the property and, although they didn't bother us, they might be a concern for someone else so I'll mention those: no elevator (but the motel is only 2 floors), not many accessible electric outlets (and one of those was not a ground plug) so you might have to be creative with charging electronics, showerhead was low and bathtub is small. Overall, we loved it and will return!
