This place was a treat - lovely spacious rooms, a kitchen, comfortable beds and a nice balcony with views of the pier. The wifi was good. Welcoming and helpful reception staff. The only negative aspect was the low pressure shower.

"Rooms are quieter on the back side of the hotel. The front side faces the road, several businesses, and the fishing pier."
"I believe the third floor suites are better and offer a view of the ocean. We will be choosing another hotel for our next visit."
"suggest south side 2nd floor with room closer to the beach entrance"
"There are 2 buildings...choose the one closer to the beach...also, choose rooms facing the pier if you want to see all the action."
"There are some oceanfront rooms. Also, both sides of the motel offer ocean view rooms."
