Stayed in a 1st floor room at the back of the motel. Nice and quiet!. Free great hot breakfast server with specific items to pick from (limit of 3). Scrambled eggs are your only choice but lots of other items to choose from too. Beds are good, room and bathroom were clean. I wish they had a hot tube beside...

Staff was very friendly! Pool and BBQ/picnic area awesome! we loved it . but the Room service...terrible!! Floors seemed as if they weren't mopped. On our second day no room service was provided. I had to go to the front desk to ask for new clean towels and sheets.

Our room was spacious, the beds comfortable. A full sofa was a useful addition. But the staff had a casual attitude about our inability to get in because of dead battery in the door, necessitating our making multiple trips down the stairs to the office and back. Stairs and walks were dirty. The parking area is littered with building materials,...

I realize they have great rates, but cleaning is another issue. The customer service at the desk was great, young man was friendly. The first room had mold and the sidewalk leading up was filthy. So I was going to change hotels but they offered another room. Second room did not have mold but curtains were off hook and there...

If you want to save some bucks, and can deal with overlooking some of the flaws (construction, aging but updated rooms, minor noise, limited parking for trailers and boats), you get a heck of a deal with a low rate, awesome cooked to order breakfast included, an outdoor pool, nicely landscaped courtyard, laundry facilities, and even a wine happy hour...

This has to be the best value in the area. The Texas coast is sometimes called the redneck riviera so don't expect to find the Taj Mahal here. Hotel staff are great. Friendly check-in. Breakfast in the morning was prepared to order by a great short order cook. Room was clean and Texas sized. Internet service was excellent. We called...

Sadly this was the worst hotel we experienced during our 3 weeks trip in the USA last summer. The room was adequate in itself, but I could not sleep one minute during the night, because there was a moldy smell so intense it kept me awake. We were on the first floor. I do not know if there is such...

Dear Valued Guest, First of all thank you very much for taking out your precious time to share your experience staying with us. We are so disheartened to hear that we couldn't exceed your expectations by providing you great accommodations during your visit last summer. This is definitely not the norm of our property. Since this property is little older,...
