It is a cute 'mom and pop' place on the ocean. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. They don't offer any breakfast. The air-conditioner was way too noisy and it sat n the wall right between the two beds. Even on the 'sleep' setting, it was way too loud. They allow dogs, which is fine by us, but in the morning when people were leaving early, dogs were barking and people were talking and yelling to each other. Very rude. It ruined our night's sleep.

Absolutely love the location and staff. Centrally located to everything.

Staff was terrific with towels, recommendations for activities and restaurants. Parking was hard to maneuver as a lot of large pickups in narrow spots. Beach access great.

Our stay was pleasant--great location right on the beach. We were able to take our dog with us, which is a plus. We had our grand children and they enjoyed the pool. Staff at the motel were all friendly and accommodating. Would go back again.

The motel is just that, a motel by the beach. No frills but they keep the place clean and it's comfortable. The major win for this motel is the staff. These were the friendliest and kindest folks I've ever met in a motel/hotel, including major resorts. They made the stay very pleasant and were very accommodating. Also, the motel is literally on the beach and right off of 158, so you really can't beat the location. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a nice 4 day stay here. There have been some up-grades made since last year. Would recommend to anyone. Staff is very friendly. Pool was nice. Beach access is great!

Wao!! Awesome experience. The place is clean, quite, in a great location near to the point of interest. Thanks for the memories, I'll be back.

With this motel you get what you pay for - not much. If you don't expect much, you will not be disappointed. Excellent location, friendly staff, very clean, and comfortable in a 50's cottage kind of way. No hair dryer but remember... Your at the beach! And I mean right there - did I mention the great location? Overall, a good experience in a quaint and friendly motel.

Great location and friendly service. I will stay there in the future!!!
