We love this hotel. We have stayed here on numerous occasions. The hotel is conveniently located right off the highway and just a couple of blocks to the village and beach. The rooms have kitchens, which helps stay on budget and they are dog friendly. The rooms are always clean. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. They remodel and update often, so... More

Dirty wet towels, emty kitchenet, rude staff with giving you nothing but attitude, no available parking spot after 10:00 p.m., two(!!!!) handicapped parking spaces for the entire motel, one (!!!) tiny elevator, smelly rooms, e.t.c, e.t.c., e.t.c.

Do not bring your family or kids here. There is the ongoing smell of maijuan inside the hotel. I was approached by a man to be a prostitute and he was stocking me. I visualized several drugs deals going on in the parkinglot while walking my dog. I watched people dumping things in the outside trash (a large amount) then... More

I stayed here September 23rd to 30th. I'll admit, the negative reviews worried me a little, but I'm glad I took the chance. I had a great stay. My room was very clean and quiet. The staff were always friendly and helpful. I even asked for a late check out the day I was leaving and that wasn't an issue.... More

We had never stayed at an extended stay before but the price was reasonable and we thought it was only for one night so we booked it. We arrived late from our event, 10PM we checked in... More

We stayed here while visiting Lego Land and other nearby attractions. It was clean, priced well, and had excellent service. We wound up extending our stay here rather than changing hotels later in our trip.
