Room 5 had rats in the walls that kept us up all night. Place felt dirty and very dated. Booked for two nights and ending up leaving a night early. Ocean view was nice and listening to the waves was relaxing, but hard to enjoy with the rats.

Don't come here if you want wild nightlife, loads of bars and shops Do come here if you want to hear the ocean, watch the waves, completely unwind and chill out. I love this place. Our unit had 2 bedrooms. A little kitchen with full oven and fridge. Bathroom with a bath & shower. It is small but perfectly OK....

I'll preface this by saying I realize each unit is individually owned. We were in unit 12 (farthest from beach, closest to street). Room, furniture, carpet and especially the bathroom are extremely dated. Toilet was not functioning correctly (would barely flush and needed constant plunging), rusty shower curtain and rod. The kitchenette was great and pretty updated. We checked out...

I recently stayed for a 3 night stay with my mother and sister. This was our fist time here, we wanted something right on the ocean or at least an ocean view, and separate sleeping arrangements for the 3 of us. The efficiency gave us 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with 2 twins. I was...

New mattresses and all new paint and interior doors this spring, I am constantly trying to make this a pleasant place to stay. July 23 and July 24,2016,...

The rooms were not at all clean and super small. It needs a MAJOR update. Certainly a disappointment and not at all meeting expectations. Only positive is location everything else a major blow. Don't know what else to say, as it did not really meet the standards at all

This is a waterfront motel. It is much smaller than what we expected it to be. The appliances are compact size. The two bedroom has 1 full / 2 twins. The couch is not a pull out. There is barely space in the rooms to have luggage or more than 2 people at a time for that matter. If you...

This was originally not where we had planned on staying! But due to a mix up on a horrible site that rhymes with Looking.com the staff at the Garlands took care of us and got us a room at this establishment and we couldn't be happier! IT was a mini apartment with Kitchen, living room 2 bed rooms and balcony!...

We stayed with friends in the 2 bedroom unit "A" for one night. . . for over $140.. The only good thing about the place was that it was ocean front. Although there is NO beach at high tide. The place itself was barely adequate, shabby and not maintained. For example, the screen in the front door was half torn...
