( The Good Stuff ) The staff is very friendly. House keeping is great. They change your sheets, vacuum, clean, everyday. I'm always worried about if a motel washes the top comforter, and they do here. Most rooms have a small kitchen. I've never seen a roach!! It is pretty convenient for not being ocean front. Hop, skip and jump...

I was going through a divorce, and I stayed here with my three children, for a couple of weeks. The hostess went out of her way to check up on me and my kids. I was alone and afraid and hurt and they were there for us. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, it was near the season end...

This is the best place has the bestest hosts anyone could ask for. We stayed here and our vehicle was broke down for 3 of the 7 days we were there. But we had no worries the Pearmans offered to take us anywhere and everywhere we needed or wanted to go. They also offered us the use of their personal...

Bed bugs. Told us they were beetles. Room smelled like smoke. Still got charged for the room. Old and outdated. Needs alot of work. Will never stay here again. Love the beach but without this place. Never again.

This motel needs updating however, it was clean and the rooms were good size. The bathroom/shower was really small but still manageable. Owner was super nice and helpful when we initially called. It was located around other hotels so for where we need to be, it was a great location.

Loved everyone there nice and quiet! The owners are so friendly. We love talking to them. Also, right across from the pier and beach. Perfectly priced! I always will go back. Our family has rented the cottage right beside it and it was lovely. Don't let the old look scare you away! They are very clean!

We discovered this gem last year in late fall. Perfect for those who love the beach and want a quiet stay. The owners were gems and this specific beach trip is still one of my favorite memories of all time. Plenty of room, super clean, wonderful service. I have no complaints at all.

We are currently staying at the Moran and we absolutely love it! My family has stayed many times at the Moran since it was built in the 60's. If you are looking for peaceful and clean, then this is the place to stay. If you are looking for all of the frills of current day hotel chains, then you may...

We booked our room 3 hours before we got there. They were so nice and gave us a big enough room for all 7 of us! Best service! A nice place, clean rooms, and complete kitchen! Loved it! We will stay here again and again!
