Nothing fancy, clean and convenient. Beds are rock hard but that wouldn’t stop me from staying there again.

Keep in mind, this is probably a $60 room anywhere but the beach. That said, it's what you would expect from a Motel 6 --"a clean, comfortable, no-frills room" as Tom Bodett would say. Be aware of just 1 thing: in our room (215) the shower water actually alternates between cold and hot. I wouldn't have my child take a shower unless I was standing right there. ...could be easy to "get burned," literally...

Room was nice, comfortable beds, bathroom was small and outdated. My biggest complaint was that we had to be out of the parking lot by 2 pm. We arrived the night before and we're staying one night to spend the next day on the beach but couldn't stay parked at the hotel to enjoy our day at the beach.

You get what you pay for.

I did not have a lot of money, so this motel fit perfectly. The pool was great and it was 2 mins walk to the beach. Room was clean, a little small, but we made do. Limited parking, but I did not have a problem finding a spot. The motel was a little stingy with the toilet paper....guess it was made out of gold. But I would definitely stay there again.
