So we booked this last minute and got it quite cheap. It was very basic, no hair dryer, no fridge, no tea /coffee facilities. Yes the bed had a weird crinkly sheet underneath it and the pillows were so flat but it was OK. The motel isn't far from the town only a walk away so there's plenty to do...

A crappy, dirty motel, a proper dive!! A plastic sheet covers the mattress which is wrinkled and crackly, a sheet over that that doesn't fit, pillows are so small and flat you'd be better off without one and if you ask for more they don't have any. Whole room is layered in dust and dirt. Very noisy location. Towels were...

We arrived at the hotel late on a Sunday night. The guy at the desk seeing we had a lot of luggage gave us a large room. The room was fine yet basic and did us just fine after a long journey. He even gave us directions to the beach area. We had no complaints with our stay.

Weird little hotel running minimum everything. No coffee maker, no blow dryer not even Kleenex! Smelled like smoke and if anything comes up too bad managers "out of town". Worth about $50. Night but not more. From other reviews it ranges from $50 to $200 a night I paid $108 Friday night and $188 Saturday night. Wayyyyyy over priced. Bed,...

Good value for money as this area is quite expensive. We only stayed here for a night. Bathroom was dirty. Floors were sticky. I had to put towel down on the floor to feel comfortable walking in there. Bed was comfortable and staff was accommating. It was fine for the one night’s stay.

It was late and we had no room. There was an Ironman Triathlon going on in town and no rooms. Due to that I think the prices were higher. Found this place online and reserved. The owner was very nice and helpful. The room was nothing special, old but clean. The bathroom has been updated and was nice.

We went to stay over night due to the Macy Gray Concert. So we checked in and before headed to the beach I had to use the bathroom. So I went in took the paper off the cover and saw 2 yellow spots and something on the front of the seat. So I thought maybe a stain but, took the...

I have stayed in a lot of motels, this was by far the worst. Yes it's cheap, but it is cheap for a reason. Old outdated televisions, dirty rooms, and thin walls. We could hear every car and every person that went by. At around 3 am a group of noisy, clearly drunk people decided to hang out for about...
