Location was close to supermarket, liquor store and pharmacy. Four long blocks to the ocean but close to the bay. Staff was very friendly and property is pet friendly. They treated our dog like gold. Would definitely recommend.

If there was 100 for a rating score, that's what I would give it. Exceptional staff, from front desk to room service! FRIENDLY, FRIENDLY, FRIENDLY! Never experienced a motel where you were treated as friends not guests. Looking forward to next summer!
