This is a great location and value. To be able to walk out of my room and onto the beach in less than 2 minutes (no joke) is amazing. The rooms are clean and smell clean. TV and internet are a plus. Proximity to restaurants, Wal-Mart, and sight seeing is the best.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly employee, Loshane. She was extremely helpful and cheery from the moment we set foot in the hotel. We loved the beach access, Island Pancake House, and proximity to downtown. All employees were professional, friendly and helpful. We will be back!

The beds were very comfortable. The pillows were so comfy we bought two of them to take home with us. We were able to walk to restaurants. The staff was great and the ocean view from the room balcony was wonderful! We will be back.

My stay was great, except my car was hit and damaged in the parking lot of the motel. Loshane was very friendly and helpful at check-in. Wes was very friendly and I enjoyed talking with him. I would recommend this motel.
