    This property has such an old soul and with that comes old bones. If you’re looking for a resort type hotel, swipe left. If you’re looking for nostalgic 50s with great client service and a stones throw from the beach, swipe right.

    Enjoyed my Stay!

    I enjoyed my stay! It’s older, but offers everything someone needs to enjoy the beach. The restaurant connected to the motel is fantastic! Friendly staff too.

    You don’t come to this hotel expecting a resort, if you so you’ll surely be disappointed. 2 things I wanted was a place to sleep and close to the ocean which the hotel definitely provides. It’s outdated, my room was sad, but pretty clean I wouldn’t dare walk barefooted on the carpet now. I had a king bed right by the pool which was great easy access to pool and even to the beach I loved it. There was no AC which I didn’t need, but there was this huge “portable” AC unit I assume. It was placed in the room it was so ugly haha I Thankfully, I didn’t need to use it though as the weather was nice and cool. Rooms need some work. The suede covered headboard made me cringe just thinking of how old and dirty it could be, the bed was worn but blankets and pillows good. Typical room with 2 night stands with plug ins and then there was a table looked very fragile I didn’t dare to put things on top of it and the chair was I’m sure an old office chair they had laying around it just looked awful. Office staff is top notch super friendly and eager to help they make this place great! Would I come back for a resort experience? Absolutely not. Would I come back for a fast, cheap getaway close to the beach? Count me in!

    it was older the bed was not very comfortable. Felt like I got a lot of extra fess that i was not expecting. Parking spaces were to close could get in my car when somebody parked next to me I had to ask them to back out so I could get in.
