This was a great deal for a budget hotel in a tourist location. I was expecting the hotel to be so much worse than it was. But to my surprise the hotel was great and the price was great as well! The staff was helpful and accommodating. We visited the local beaches and the seafood festival. The hotel was located... More

Needed a room last minute for a Saturday night in July & this did the trick just fine. The main thing here is the value relative to other hotels in the area. (that are dirty & charge 2 - 3x as much). Clean room & everything worked fine - easy check-in & check out......will definitely stay here again when in... More

This place was terrible. There was no one in the office when we came to check in at 3 in the afternoon. We had to knock on the neighbor's door and thankfully she had a key to let us in since we couldn't get a hold of anyone. Not sure where the previous people who wrote reviews stayed, but this...

We were there for one night the first week of June. Management was not. If a motel is going to rent rooms before the tourism season gets going, they should have someone on site 24/7. It's just common sense. We made the reservation several weeks in advance, and no one ever gave us the impression that they didn't open for... More
