“Great for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

This hotel has everything you need, it's clean, it's beachside, pool, has a small kitchenette. The staff were all very friendly. I wish they had the option of queen or king sized beds... was a bit crampy trying to share a bed, but they were comfortable enough. The place did smell old, but a little fabreeze & some good cooking, the smell fades. If it had a window that opened that would help, but unfortunatly it did not. The walls are a bit thin, but I'm not a light sleeper, so it did not bother me. I will probably stay here again.

Let me start this off by saying that I stayed here during Senior Week & I wasn't looking for a fabulous hotel.. so if that's what you're looking for, this motel is not for you.

PROS:
-CHEAP- went with 4 people for 5 days and it was only about $150 per person for the entire time.
-We got the the Motel like 3 hours early (11:00, check in is supposed to be at 2), called and they told us we could get a parking permit to park awhile and come back about a half hour later to check in early. We hung out at the beach, came back and checked in way earlier than I thought we would.
-The guy that checked us in, in the morning was really nice. Joked around with us and gave us a fold out bed within 5 minutes of us asking.
-The maid was really nice, always asked us when she seen us if we needed anything.
-The room was so much bigger than we thought they were going to be, had a full kitchen and plenty of seating.
-The pool is supposed to close at like 8 or something, but the night guy let it open til like 10 or 11 as long as people weren't being too loud.
-The Motel is literally less than like a 5 minute walk to the beach.
-Parking was awesome, even when there was no Vacancy.
-The beds were pretty good, I had no trouble sleeping.

CONS
-The furniture is very outdated.
-Bathroom is kinda small and the tub got clogged.
-Pool was small, not very deep.
-FAR from the boardwalk, but not a bad walk. (I didn't look into how far from the boardwalk though.. so my fault)
-We could hear the people above us and could literally see the floor shaking when they were jumping on the bed. They were other kids for senior week and they were just obnoxious.

Overall, we had a great time and it was nice enough to chill in when it rained. I would definitely recommend this Motel if you're on a tight budget and need a decent place to stay.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the room right beside check in, from what I saw they don't use that room.. but...

Its an average beach motel the only things that stick out are the size of the rooms great size for the price. The maids are extremely friendly as well.
