I liked the size of the room. Plenty of room for two queen beds. I didn’t like that there are zero amenities. I miss the restaurant that used to be on property. It was good dood and so convenient.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your review and rating. Usually when this happens it's the booking website that people use to book NON-REFUNDABLE reservations. I am unable to see what reservation this is .

The room was up to date, mostly clean, the pool area was very nice. Great location, short walk to the beach and downtown. My parents stayed next door to us and had a homeless person try to break into their room through the bathroom window. The staff handled it right away, and they were given a discount on their room for the night. Staff was very nice. There is no breakdast to,speak of, just a few pre packaged pastries, fruit and coffee. Should not be advertised as free breakfast. Lots of people smoking all over the property. The area behind the motel is sketchy. Could use some security and landscaping.

Dear Anonymous, I want to apologize for the intrution your parents incurred at this location. This does not happen here and I hope that we were able to show you that we are very proactive with this type of issue. I am happy to hear that the staff did do their part to make you more comfortable. As for our Breakfast, our lobby is too small for a full breakfast but we are changing that real soon. I hope you come back to see our changes.
