We had a lovely stay on a Saturday night. The hotel is located right by the pier which you can walk on for free. We enjoyed walking down to the beach which was only a little over a block away. I have read many of the other reviews and disagree with many of them. This place is not a hilton...

A friend of ours and me and our son went down to do some fishing and thought we would give this place a try. The rooms are decent but definitely could be better. The location is great being so close to the pier and boat rentals are just down the road. Beds are uncomfortable and everything is quite out dated.

The fact that this is called the "ocean view inn" is a joke. There are only about 8 rooms on the 2nd floor where you can actually see the ocean. The rest of the hotel all you can see is the parking lot and the run down trailers next door. The door for our room had a one inch gap...

I stayed in this motel back in July 2012. They are so cleaned and friendly. It is so close to the beach and fishing pier. I would definitely go back again this year. Also, we have rented RV campground every year which is next to the motel. Reminder, they do not have no playground for the kids. But, they will...

This was the worst experience we have ever had at a hotel! The name of the hotel claims to provide you with ocean view... But you would have to practically stand on the roof of the motel to get your view of the ocean which is hidden by all the buildings in the way. Once we actually entered the room...

At first glance this hotel looks like a million other shabby beach side hotels. But on the inside the rooms are super clean, the beds are very comfortable, everything in the room works as it should,and the staff is very friendly. On top of it being in an awsome location at a great price

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night in September. The first thing that hit me when I opened the door was stale cigarette smoke. Over the weekend cigarette smoke would come in through the bathroom as out neighbors lit up. The floors were filthy. My families feet ended up black from the carpets in the room. The bathrooms are tiny...
