Older beach motel in a great location with very spacious rooms. Ocean front balconies and reasonable rates. This area is about as far south as you can get on the island. The beach was very private and serene. Great stay!

Cons: It needs an update in the worst way. But the rooms are individually owned, so in a way you don't know what you're gonna get. Our room had a peculiar smell, I kept referring to it as chicken & cigarettes. I am not sure if smoking is allowed in any of the rooms but other guests certainly were smoking....

This Motel is such a relaxing place to stay, it is towards the south end of the island and the beach area is not as crowed as other parts of the island. Because each room has individual owners, I enjoyed looking at how some of the various rooms were decorated. The office staff were very helpful and friendly. And I...

This is a cool,old beach property... it is clean and staff is very nice and accommodating... the beach is literally outside the door... it is not fancy... it is not for one that expects the finest accommodations as far as decor, amenities etc.... but the location and the ocean are the best.... I loved it

I love that all the rooms are ocean front and individually owned and appointed. You can go to their website to pick the room you want (pictures of each individual room are presented there). I chose a non-smoking/non pet friendly room, but those options are available to those who smoke or who want to bring their fur babies. The lady...

Beautiful room right on the beach. Wonderful sandy beaches that were not crowded and everyone walking the area was very friendly. Wonderful having an extra counter and sink with dishes in the cupboards. Neat and tidy. Front desk was helpful in advice for nearby dinner choices. Would stay again but would like the 3rd floor for a better view. We...

The deck is nice & right at the dunes so nice to sit next to the ocean which is only reason this gets a 2. Positives stop there. The woman at the check-in is rude! We wanted to leave the minute we met her. Then, entering the room, it smelled moldy or stale. We had to open the doors &...

This is a great location, right on the un-crowded beach. Love that this place is pet friendly and while we didn't bring pets with us, we did enjoy seeing all the dogs out and about. I thought the cleanliness of the room could have been better. It wasn't terrible but there was a little goop on the front of the...

The hotel is older, a little worn around the edges, but it's very clean. The room was decorated in a beachy way that made us smile. The location couldn't be better—you're right on the beach. And the beach itself is uncrowded. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They were out there every day cleaning the grounds as well as the...
