We stayed here for vacation may 2016. Staff was friendly, location was great! Wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be but we did rush them for an early check-in so that could be why. Did smell kind of weird, we bought air freshener. Good for the price.

Thankfully I only booked one night at this motel, Saturday, May 7, 2016. The air conditioning had not been turned on yet. There was a microwave in the room but I would have had to move the sofa to plug it in. There was a coffee pot on the table, but no receptacle nearby. The electrical outlets need updated. When...

This place is average. Not a great place, not a horrible place. It serves its purpose. It is within walking distance to the beach and shops. There is a kitchenette in each room so you can cook as much or little as you like. Parking is very limited.
