"some upper floor rooms have good ocean view, end room on south end is quiet, also no elevator"
"Ask for a beach view!"
"There are no elevators!"
"Pick a room with a kitchenette in the main part of the motel-it is worth the added cost."
"If you want a decent view, be specific that you want an ocean view room, but better yet go to a different hotel"
