Loved it here and will definitely come back for a much longer stay., Close to beach and a little restaurant /bar right across the street. Walking on the beach at sunrise is perfect. The rooms are very clean and spacious the oceanfront rooms are great. We were there for 2 nights and were able to move to the oceanfront room...

I ended my short business trip with a one-night stay there. The motel is in an excellent location, and the staff there was very nice and friendly. The motel is quite dated, but my room was in good shape. Nothing exciting, but everything worked, was clean, and nothing seemed worn or defective. There was a kitchenette but I didn't use...

My husband & I stayed for 2 nites this week. Awesome access (just steps away) to the ocean and restaurant across the street has the BEST grilled chicken sandwich!! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend supplying your guest with bottled water in the room. I had to buy them at the desk for 1.50 in order...

We stayed here because our time share had no bonus days. It was a great choice. Rooms are nice. We had ocean from with kitchenette and two beds. The people who work here were wonderful. I would stay here again. Pool nice. Washer and dryers. Continental breakfast too. Thanks for a great week

Excellent location to the Beach. The motel is an older one but in very good condition and very well taken care of. Myra greeted us and check in was very quick and easy. The staff is very friendly and accommodating made feel right at home. Access to the beach couldn't be easier. Loved our time and will be back soon..

The motel was just what we needed for a three day getaway in late Feb. We checked in without any problems and found our room to be very clean and in excellent condition considering this is an older property. The price was just what we were looking for a three night stay over Presidents weekend. The bed linen and towels...

I chose the Beachside Motel for a girls' getaway with my mom and sister, attracted by the reasonable rates and positive online reviews. It exceeded my expectations. Check-in was simple and we found our room to be clean and comfortable. We didn't make full use of the appliances (refrigerator, microwave, coffeepot) or dishware/silverware, but it was nice to know they...

Excellent stay here. I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was beyond nice, so friendly and helpful. The manager, Marcy, helped us to move to an ocean side room which we fell in love with. The cleaning staff did an excellent job and I had fun conversations with them, felt like I found new friends! Thank you Marcy and staff,...

Contact this hotel directly and you'll probably get a better price that through a discount provider. Myra was on the desk when we arrived and was very helpful with getting us extra coffee supplies for our early departure the next morning before the office opened for breakfast. Be warned that there is no elevator and that toilets are not ADA...

From the outside, this place looks good. But right now, I'm sitting in my room hearing every word of a conversation the people in the next room are having, and not because they're yelling, because the walls are paper thin. Last night I couldn't sleep because of the noise from the karaoke at the restaurant across the street. The room...
