I cannot say enough good things about this motel! We were a little skeptical about staying here,based solely on the outward appearance. But we went with the reviews. Boy were we surprised! It was super clean! The AC was cool. It was right across the street from the ocean with public beach access super close. We would DEFINITELY stay here again if in the area. (If I had to complain, it would be the lack of outlets in the bathroom in room 15) Not a deal breaker for us.

I am so happy that we stayed here! This is an old school motel with updated features like flat screen tv w/Dish Network. The front desk staff was extremely nice and super helpful with information on places in the area. Room was very clean and comfortable and less than a block from the beach. I highly recommend this place whether it's a short weekend stay or a week long vacation! Will DEFINITELY stay here again when we come back!

We only stayed one night, but we were highly impressed with this place! It's an older establishment but VERY well maintained and clean. The bathroom was small but was immaculately clean and well served our purposes. Water pressure in the shower was even better than what we have at home! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Bed was also very comfortable and sheets were fresh! Highly recommended!

The Moran is a typical "beach motel". It is conveniently located to restaurants, shops, and the beach. The room was small, but clean and cozy. Although it is located on the main street, it was quiet. We would choose to stay here again!
