The property was quaint and very quiet. The bluffs and beach were just a short walk away. Our children loved it! The motel was clean. There was a shopping center just around the corner for food, coffe, and a few fast food restaurants.

Walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Bare bone facilities but nice and clean. Take the hair dryer with you if you want one.

WORST EVER HOTEL

In the past 15 days I have been in 15 hotels. This was the worst ever!! The rooms are micros..no where for luggage, no microwave, no mini-fridge, poor places to park and the staff is helpless, judgemental and borderline rude. Don't bother!

Worst hotel ever!

We had the nastiest room, the floors were wood so they weren't clean at all. The floors were black, had other people's hair on the ground, and we killed an earwig on the floor by the beds. The shower would be either really hot or really cold! The bathroom was horrific, the shower was dirty, the sink wouldn't drain so the nasty water just sat in the sink so we had to brush our teeth in the tub! We put towels down so we could walk because the bathroom was disgusting. The beds were so uncomfortable and you only got 1 pillow each person but the pillows felt like nothing! The bathroom reminded me of a really gross circle K bathroom! We wore our shoes the whole time because we did not want to be barefoot on the gross ground.

uncomfortable bed

Pros: Good location.
Cons: They should put good mattresses in. Much can be forgiven if the bed is comfortable. They should air out the rooms. It was stuffy with a strange odor.
Location: Short walk to beach and good food close enough to walk. Many interesting dining choices.
Close to beach(short walk), fairly quite but just went ahead and gave up room and drove home as bed was just too uncomfortable to sleep in. We were just out the money but happy to have not suffered through the night.
