Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms

Guests speak highly of accommodations here. Rooms are described as functional with plenty of room to spread out. Guests also comment that rooms are spotlessly clean, passing the white glove test of even the most discerning guest.

Friendly management

The owners genuinely care that guests have a positive experience. Guests often remark that service is attentive and accommodating, with a personal touch that makes guests feel at home. Much to the delight of pet owners, four-legged companions are also treated with the same level of outstanding customer service.

Great location

Guests enjoy being within easy driving distance of area beaches and attractions, while having restaurants within walking distance is considered a bonus. Guests also like that the quiet position of the motel means that unwelcome noise isn't a problem.

Negative Reviews

A blast from the past

Guests mention that the motel is an older property that harks back to another time. Rooms are said to feature outdated decor, small TVs, and old-fashioned furnishings. While not deal-breakers, reviewers suggest that the motel would benefit greatly from a facelift.

Stairs can be an issue

Guests who are assigned rooms on the second floor face a steep climb. It can be difficult to carry luggage up the stairs, and guests often wish that they had a room on the ground level.

Terrible water pressure and temparature

The showers unfortunately seem to suffer when it comes to water temperature and pressure. Reviews state it appears to be at certain times of the day which will most probably be when there are many showering at once.
