Musty smell, shopworn furniture including broken table, dirty carpet, dirty bathroom. A rundown beachfront motel. Interestingly Travelocity asked earlier for comments, and apparently shared with the property which responded to Travelocity that stye had resolved issues directly with me: completely untrue. They never contacted me directly

This was our second time staying here! It’s nothing fancy but the room was clean and well equipped. Check in was smooth and quick and they even allowed a late check-out! As with the last time, the location was the major draw. The beach is right there and not super busy. We would definitely stay again.

Good beach access. Check-in was slow beyond check-in time, room floor not very clean and balcony floor is full of sand, bathroom space is tight, breakfast food is typical. overall it is reasonable.

The staff was very nice. Check in was easy. I locked myself out of the room and I recieved a replacement key quickly and with a smile. I spoke with housekeeping about check out procedure 30 minutes before the deadline . She was friendly and informative.

It was a little older but It was just fine for a one night stay. Lots of room and clean. It had a funny smell when we walked in, and was missing a shower curtain. Taking a bath was fine after a long traveling day. The staff was very efficient and welcoming.
