A very nice welcome and such a lovely Family atmosphere. We were allowed to view a couple of rooms before making a choice which was really helpful. Maya & Mak were wonderful hosts and were always there if you needed anything. We'll definitely be staying there again!

Location was perfect. The owners were so attentive. The renovations are fantastic. LOVE this place! SPOTLESS, and we were in a room that was still in the process of being renovated.

I have to say my wife and I were very impressed with the remodel. Our room wasn't 100% done but it was only missing a few touches. We weren't expecting it to be as nice. Love the tile and the bedding. Bathroom was beautiful. Think they should change the name because motel doesn't give it justice. I do think they...

Just got back from a bachelorette party weekend. The only good thing to say about this place is the location. However, the hotel is under construction which is fine and maybe should've been noted on their website. Our room was missing a few "minor" details like a bathroom room door... us girls like our privacy and had we known this...

Came here with some friends for my bachelorette party weekend. For almost $200 a night we expect at least a bathroom door! We got to the room Friday night and the hotel is under construction which is fine, however maybe that should be noted online that the rooms are not completed yet. No bathroom door would have been a deal...

Thank you for noting our great location! As the new owners we are working on extensive renovations. We had to shut down after the hurricane, but we are remodeling each room fully before we open it up again. We have several rooms open now, and many more soon. I hope you come back and see all the positive changes!
