We got a 'family' room-two bedrooms, have to walk through one to get to the bathroom. Microwave was broken and filthy. Fridge-freezer never been defrosted, full of black mould and broken fittings. Towels were crispy. Wires hanging off walls. Work surface covered in crumbs, dust and the odd hair. I bought cleaning stuff because I couldn't rest with such muck...

Let's start with the positives.... Very friendly Manager in the office who kindly told us if we heard a 3-5 minute siren it was only an emergency at the local nuclear power plant! Close to the beach. Other than that - filthy, filthy filthy!! Sleep in your car!

Great price, basic motel with no frills but a perfect location a couple of blocks from the pier. Check in seems a little late - 2pm, but worked out OK. Clean, pleasant staff, full kitchen was a surprise. No coffee maker, however, and lobby coffee is not ready until 8am. We found a candy store offering coffee at 7am near...

Upon walking into a queen room I booked, I noticed the room was very small. It appeared clean but there was lots of stains on the carpet and later I discovered it was NOT clean. The metal heater in the wall looked old and had rust everywhere, I didn't use it so I'm not sure if it worked. There was...

First off, I pretty much never use Trip Advisor, but I hated this place enough that I felt compelled to warn others. This place was horrible. The only good thing about this place is that it made every place afterwards seem pretty awesome in comparison. We got a room with a single king size bed for $75+tax (after haggling with...

Stayed here for one night and that was enough ! The beds are clean and that's about all the good points I have .The whole motel needs a total overhaul , very tired and worn..... the only good point is its a 2 minute walk to the beach .........

This place has been the worse place I have ever stayed in. The worse ever! Rotting stair way leading to the room, non working smoke alarm, curtains that didn't cover the windows, cobwebs, thick dust, rotting walls, nasty bed covers, towels were stiff, stained and worn, the shower had so much rust and debris that the water barely came out....
