The property was nice suited to purpose, but the biggest complaint I have is your travel site overcharging me around $65 a night for a room that was quoted much less, y’all are just wrong for that Travelocity, trip advisor, or whoever site wound up booking our room, not the hotels fault but we sure know better next time!

Very noisy. Children running around unattended. Curtains fail to block out light from security lights. No amenities at all.

The location was great. Less than miles from the beach, the zoo, mini golf, and other attractions.

The location was close to the beach but the building itself was in a sad state. As much as we paid per night it should have been cleaner and they could use some updating of the actual property. Also, went to check in and they had given our room to someone else for the 2nd night even though our reservation was confirmed the morning of check in.

Thank you for your feedback, we look forward to improving your overall experience on your return trip.

The floors were dirty and sandy. The towels that were folded and passed off as "clean" were not clean. The towels had dirt marks and stains. The rooms were never cleaned. No turn down service. The ice machine was not clean both in the inside and outside. The beds were uncomfortable. no hair dryer was available. Hardly any room to put luggage any where. The staff enters room without masks to "clean" room or leave towels. With the spread of covid. They are not taking the extra step to make customers feel safe.

This motel price was approx. $109.00 per night. My first room was unaceptable because ther were stains on the sheets. The motel clerk was gracious to show me other rooms until I was satisfied with it's cleanliness. The price of the room was not worth $109. The floors were dirty and the amenities were scarce. The towels were clean but didn't look like it. No sofa, and hardly any place to sit and work. I could see paying about $40.00. The location (about 3-5 miles from the beach) does not outweigh the cost. I also understand that COVID may play a role in this, but I also felt like I needed to clean a few surfaces myself.
