This is a GREAT place with WONDERFUL people that make you feel like your FAMILY! We can't thank Gayle & Rodney enough for their outstanding hospitality while staying the last week of April 2017.

We have stayed here twice now, and we love it. The owners are very friendly and relaxed. They have beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and even kids' toys for the sand. The suites are really nice (and the beds we've had have been really comfortable). he kitchen is pretty well stocked - pots, pans, drainer, can opener, salt and pepper....

This place is literally one block from the beach. Comfortable and clean. Rodney was an amazing host! I would definitely stay here again. It was a wonderful one bedroom with a bath and kitchen. Great neighbors and a deck to watch the fireworks! Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Wave. The day manager and the owners were very helpful. They made sure everything we needed was provided. Extra pillows, quilts etc.. Rooms are a little small but hey for the price it's not bad. Will stay here again if back in the area. They are within walking distance to everything.

This was an absolutely GREAT place to stay, maybe not a brand new expensive high rise Motel, but the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living area were comfortable and well maintained, about a 2-3 minute walk to beach access, they provided free beach towels, umbrella, small cooler, anything we wanted, they would have given to us to use, free Parking also!!!...
