work stay during busy summer time

It was lacking a bit. I was not in the hotel much, but the beds are not the most comfortable. There are no amenities and you pay for wifi so you'll need to be prepared to stay here.

Great location

If you are in the front of the hotel facing the beach it is great! Rooms have all new furniture.

Simple Motel room

No frills. Clean and neat. It is a Motel 6 and has what you would expect from a cheap motel. Except that it is located in SB where there are no cheap motels. So it is an expensive room with nothing extra.

Last Minute Getaway

Upon arrival the staff was very helpful and got us to our room in no time. Even after going out to dinner and returning only to find an issue with parking, the evening staff member didn't quit until the issue was resolved. Very helpful.

Bare Minimum

The location is outstanding but remember to bring your own shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and kleenex, blow dryer, coffee pot and coffee as the hotel does not provide. Also, the room was very small, two full beds, a nightstand between with a phone, a small table with two chairs under the tv and that is it! You also have to pay for the internet. Again, great location but bare minimum amenities.

NOT SO CHEAP

Not so cheap to be a motel but you are really ocean front, two steps from the beach. Everything is almost new and with modern furniture. That's a pity that wifi connection is not included in the price. You also don't find shampoo and air conditioning in your bathroom but only in the hall as a Garnier sponsorship. Besides there is no airdryer. First day I've also fuond stains on a towel, it was not dirty but stained. Second evening, to the reentry in room,, we ought to go back to the hall to train again the key that was no more working: problem immediatly solved.
