This was a no frills, fairly inexpensive for the season, close to the beach, motel. A 5 minute walk to the beach so if location is your main requirement, this is a good bet. It's a little annoying waiting at the long light to cross Coastal Highway but that's not the motel's fault. There are also plenty of cute shops...

Thank you for the review of our property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and you found the motel clean and comfortable. I was concerned to hear that you were not greeted with a friendly, helpful clerk. We strive to maintain a welcoming environment with prompt customer service. We continue to renovate our rooms every winter, we replaced most...

If you are a beach person this place is for you. Walk to the beach which is basically across the street about a block. Very convenient close walk to stores and places to eat. Right down the road from O.C. The hotel was nice, the beds were comfortable, staff was friendly. The rooms could have been cleaner. The bathroom floor...

First I'd like to say that yes you do get what you pay for, and if you want a reasonable priced place at the beach you gotta do what you gotta do. I stayed her last year and found for the price it was a decent place to stay...now this year totally different, here are the things that were wrong....1....

We were actually given this two night trip as a gift and I was pleasantly surprised! You know how most motels only give you two little cheap pillows to sleep on? Well, not here. There were four large, comfy pillows on the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in my life. I actually looked at the tags on...

Very impressed with the spotless room. Stayed in June for under $100/night. Front desk staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. Great restaurants within walking distance. Nice view of the canal from balcony, very peaceful. I cannot over emphasize the cleanliness of this establishment.

Price was reasonable and it wasn't a dump like so many places along these beaches. Room was clean, bed was very comfy and the staff was friendly. The A/C controls were no user friendly and we had a good breeze blowing over us all night as we couldn't "direct" the air-flow.

The owners are great, very nice. Room was not quite ready when we got there so we trekked to the beach, just across the street so very close. Beds could ve changed, mattresses have seen their day. Tv was updated but furniture not. Room smelled like mildew, no amount of lysol helped. I Got a great rate, for the location....

The Fenwick Islander was exactly what my family was looking for! Clean room, comfy beds/bedding, small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, sink), and a balcony where we could hang beach towels to dry! Additionally, the staff was very accommodating with allowing us a parking pass and the use of the pool/showers when we arrived before check in time. It was just a...

Great location & clean. Enjoyed the fun, simple pool with outdoor shower to clean off the beach sand & loved having a balcony. Less than 5 min walk to beach. Walked across & set up tent & in the ocean in less than 10 minutes.
