My husband and I stayed 6 nights here. The room itself wasn't bad. The bathroom seems like it's been updated, it has nice tile on the floor and also a nice tiled shower. The carpet definitely needs to be replaced in the bedroom area. There are stains all over it. The bed was decently comfy but we were only given...

We stayed here because we booked at the last minute and didn't find anything better without spending a fortune in the area although is not that cheap either. Not much good to say except that is clean but for the rest, room very small, bed not very comfortable, the place is close to the local airport so planes noise, can...

To start off, the price was very cheap for the location being practically beach front. Walking distance to all stores and restaurants. Room was very clean and tidy. Friendly service. Only minor issue was the TV not setup.

We stayed here one night, the room was quite nice. We requested extra pillows and they were brought straight away. Our room was at back the of motel and it was quite there. Parking is at your front door, there is no breakfast.

This is a good room if that's all you want. No frills at all. Very small but clean and well kept. The host was helpful and pleasant. But keep in mind it's just a room. The queen size bed is comfy, the bathroom looks like it was just redone. The towels are a bit rough and straggly. It's definitely a...

For the price this lodging it is just what we need. I don't expect anything fancy when all we need is a place to sleep. There is small fridge to keep our water. Wifi reception was pretty good. Clean, cozy and it's on motel row surrounded by establishments such as restaurants, banks, grocery etc. Denny's is across the street. The...

simple, not expensive place to stay for those who do not require a lot of luxury. Pro: clean, all the bathroom utilities and cozy. Cons: no breakfast and heater VERY LOUD, quite unstable internet. For one night is completely ok :)

It is a small inn, has free parking, and free internet, no breakfast free. It has the old-school little fridge but still works,i dont mind with it, though the carpet is kind of old but its clean and in the bath area are kind of newer made of tiles. I like it though. They have cable t.v but not flat...

Stayed here for a break in our camping trip.. rugs were filthy, bedding was very old, well everything was old. My daughter said it was better at the campsite. It was nice to park next to the room, that was about the nicest thing. Not the best part of town either.
