Recently stayed in unit #8 (the detached unit) for the weekend.
The motel has definitely seen better days. The room we stayed in had a noticeable stink of mildew and staleness to it, especially in the bathroom. It could use to be cleaned with bleach a lot more frequently. Even though the inside of the place was clean on arrival, it just has a dirty feel to it. It probably didn't help that there was a full trash can (with trash protruding from under the lid) on our porch on arrival, which was attracting bugs, and didn't get emptied until the next day. The unit itself feels like it's going to fall apart at any moment. It's tilted so bad that the bathroom door won't even shut completely, and the sliding door feels like it's going to bounce of the rails as it shutters open and closed.
The location of the motel is awesome, with the decks from the units being a mere 100 yards walk to the beach. The beach in this area is nice, with lots of room to walk around. Car access to the beach is just 50 or so yards up the road. The staff at the motel were incredibly friendly, both when we had to call with questions, and when we needed stuff during our stay.
