All rooms are ocean front, have balconies, pool is ocean front. It's a small motel so not a lot of people. Excellent place for families. Staff was super friendly and helpful. There is no elevator, but it's only 5 stories. There is no vending or ice machines BUT there is a small convenient store in the corner of the motel, super convenient! We have stayed here before, this time was much better!

This is a small hotel right on the beach! We watched the most amazing fireworks right from our balcony. However, if you don't like loud noises, don't go over July 4th holiday. It doesn't have an elevator, but the climb to the second floor is less than into a beach house. It's a great location with wonderful staff, and this was our second visit. The new paint and updates are great! Nice size pool and deck area. A little convenience store right on the property is nice. We will be back! Oh and the room had a regular size fridge and a microwave, which was great!

Easy, convenient and the staff were very friendly. Overall Clean property with a pretty view!

I love staying here, always know what to expect, rooms clean, all oceanfront, location, the only pain is the construction

The Inn itself was perfect, but the management would not refund a deposit for a cancellation made in compliance with their stated policy. I first made a reservation to stay three nights, and the Inn charged mea deposit. We later found that we needed to reschedule our trip, so I cancelled that reservation four days before our scheduled arrival. The Inn published policy says reservations cancelled at keast 72 hours in advanceow refuses to refund that deposit.

I like how it was right on the beach and only a mile or so away from a lot of stuff. The bathtub was atrocious, cracks all over it, the knobs covering was coming off the wall and their was some brown liquid that had leaked from the corner of the sink (rust?). The flooring felt like it was lifting in the middle. I went to put drinks in the fridge and found it wasn't on. It was later at night so I didn't want to wake my child figuring it out. The front staff was absolutely amazing and very nice. The room needs a serious deep cleaning though. It felt like a $60/night room vs $100 /night. Great location next to the beach and being near stuff, staff was extremely friendly but room was extremely disappointing in cleanliness, if the room was cleaner and better kept up, it would have been better.

I have stayed here multiple times, location, staff , rooms always good for me,

We knew it wasn't going to be high end. We just wanted to have oceanfront. The room was a good size. The refrigerator was large. The air conditioning unit was very loud. Everything really needs to be updated but you get what you pay for.

Oceanfront, clean renovated room, comfortable beds ,

Great location and updates are evident but still looks a bit shabby. Poor internet service. Friendly office staff.

Nice room, convenient to pool and beach. Need a mirror in bedroom area (only one in bathroom). Enjoyed our stay.

WiFi is, essentially, useless! Horribly slow and then quits.

This is a $60 room on the ocean, so it is priced higher. I would stay again.

The room was comfortable and right by the pool, but the glass door had no screen so I couldn’t open it to be able to hear the surf. Also, it advertises free wi-fi, but it didn’t work if you had an Apple product.

Just spent a week here and it was wonderful!! The beds are awesome,,,staff SO SO friendly. Great pool!!
