Customer service was great No complaints there! While the room needed some care. Black mold in the bathroom, smelled horrible had to keep the windows open the whole stay. The carpet was tearing at the seems. The shower knob felt as if it was broke and had to be turned just right to turn on/off water.The best part was the sunset view and my girls loved the pool.

We enjoyed sitting outside on the chairs gazing at the ocean. It was nice to have a spacious room, a mini fridge, two tables and three chairs in our room. Had we stayed longer, we would have used the outside pool. The walls in this hotel are thin. We could hear the people above us talking well after midnight. If you go, stay upstairs.

This is a lovely little motel, well maintained. The king bed room was charming, quiet and comfortable, the breakfast was acceptable and the boardwalk is just steps away. We'll be happy to stay here again.

Nice location. Heated pool and cornhole are nice touches. Furniture in room is very outdated and mismatched. No AC though it was cool and night but warm during the day.

View from our room was fabulous! It was clean. Cookies in the room were delicious. Breakfast choices were good, especially the hot oatmeal. Yum! Alfonso in the breakfast was very friendly and helpful! He gave excellent service!

Close to beach but could be more comfortable

Pros: Across from the ocean.
Cons: A heater with an adjustable thermostat. A microwave.
Location: Hiking.
The location of the hotel was great because it was right across the road from the beach; and , and the continental breakfast was definitely a plus. However, I had trouble sleeping because the weather was cold but the heater only had 2 settings (ON and OFF). When I turned the heater ON, it eventually got too HOT in the room and it would wake me up and then I would turn the heater OFF and in a few hours I was cold and had to turn it ON again (therefore I would wake up 2-3 times during the night). There were no warm blankets in the room and my bed sheet had what appeared to be a blood stain. The hot water took a long time to get warm so my daughter refused to take a shower for the time we were there. The towels were very rough and discolored. There was no microwave.
