Pros: Loved the balcony and wildlife. Not immaculate but good quality for the price. Beds were clean and comfortable, no bugs. Rooms were spacious. We would love to stay again. Cons: No screen on sliding glass door(at least our room did not) and there is no elevator.

Couldnt sleep. very old, not comfortable and full of bugs.

Rooms were spacious. My room had a hot tub and a small balcony that I could sit on and feed the turtles that populated the small lake. It was very relaxing and I plan to go back very soon. It will be my go to when I visit family and friends at the Dunes. It is super close to the downtown area. Right next door is a CVS. Lots of convenience yet a beautiful view in the back. You feel secluded even though you are in the town.

Loved the veiw and the deck was relaxing room was clean and shower was hot. Staff was very polite enjoyed our stay

Our room was literally over the water. It was amazing. I opened up the curtain over the sliding glass door and I was staring at a beautiful lake. So awesome!

Nice little motel for overnight stay. Walking distance for eats. A My Cousin Vinny experience with the trains that go by. Gave a good chuckle everytime. Air conditioner provided white noise to mask train noise. Beds comfortable. Over all good price, convienent, good experience

Great place to stay especially for an event at the banquet hall right next door

Dirty corners, looked like 8 yr.old painted it, pee on toilet seat, exposed plumbing by empty roll of toilet paper. Best thing I can say is there were no bedbug's!

Huge room, beautiful view, quiet. We will definitely be visiting again!

The room was super dirty when we got there. There was a grape on the bathroom floor. Also there was a smoked cigarette in the balcony.
