    My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at the motel. The rooms are exceptionally clean. I loved listening to the sound of the waves at night. We sat in the rocking chairs on the balcony watching the dolphins. I can't wait to return!!!

    We allocate one car per room on the oceanfront. Additional cars, trailers, etc. can be placed on the soundside. Thanks for asking.
