We called last minute and asked to book 2 rooms for one night. The desk clerk was extremely kind, friendly and accommodating. He offered to show us rooms before we reserved them. Rooms were a little dated, but very clean and comfortable. The property was well cared for. We just needed a bed for the night as we hit the...

My son and I just stayed at this motel and found the guest comments listed here to be very accurate. It's all about expectations compared to value. The Sunshine Motel is just that -- an old-fashioned family-run small motel on a main road. Our 5-star review is not meant to indicate that this is a five-star hotel. But - if...

We had a great time. The owner was fabulous and made sure we were very happy and content...we enjoyed bbq and patio right outside our door....and the heated pool saved the day with chilly weather. We will be back no doubt in my mind...beach is two miles away..

Cute little hotel, retro with super friendly owners/managers. Very clean and centrally located. I never saw the family who run this sitting still. They were busy helping people, cleaning, or working around the property. Cute pool too. Perfect for what we needed. I will stay again.

Clean and basic. Great location, close drive to the beach and close to shops and restaurants. Went to Casperson beach to look for shark's teeth and then to Sharky's after for sunset and dinner. Wonderful! Detwiler's Market was fun for food shopping.

We had to stay in this motel because of a last-minute business need (not vacation). The grounds and room were neat and it seems they put in effort to keep the place that way. The good point was that you can open the bathroom window (with effort) for fresh air. One drawback is that the motel is right on a...
