The service was fantastic, and the location very convenient - it was only a 10 minute walk to the bus stop, and a 20 minute walk to the beach promenade. The room was very comfortable and there was breakfast available every morning. The wifi in the room was very good.

The unthinkable happened -- my girlfriend and I both thought the bed was very comfortable. That has never happened before. In addition, the room appears to have been refurbished recently with new carpet, paint, shower curtain, etc. The included breakfast was good, including 4 kinds of cold cereal, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, fresh fruit (cut and whole), juice, and coffee....

This is a motel (not a hotel)--but as far as motels go, this is very nice and very clean. The rooms are completely renovated and look like they belong to a nice hotel. The front desk employees were very friendly and made the checkin and checkout quick and easy. The location is a bit off the beaten path--a bit far...

We had an awesome time for a one night stay. We stayed in a single king bed room on the second floor on the corner #124. Hotel was very quiet. We could hear some noise from the street but it wasn't too bad. Heater was pretty loud but once we got to sleep we didn't notice and the room kept...

I love staying at this motel. It is surrounded by trees & gardens. Very clean rooms and friendly. Economical. The continental breakfast is yummy. They provide a list of good restaurants so you don't have to search for dinner. The hot tub is locked so that only hotel guests have access. Highly recommended.

Have stayed here several times, last weekend being the most recent. I have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. The rooms are exceptionally clean, modern, well-appointed, with very comfortable beds. The free breakfast is great and varied (we have both vegetarian and gluten-intolerant family members and there plenty of choices for everyone). Every staff member we have...

I had some work to do upon arrival so I enjoyed my big room and a place to set up my laptop. I did not use the hot tub as it seemed like it needed a drain and refill but the courtyard was cute and fun place to have a picnic. I had a quiet rest and this place was...

Quick check-in, friendly staff, clean room, fine breakfast, inner courtyard with tables and chairs for family and friends to gather; plenty of restaurants nearby for easy-access dining; smoking at the end of the parking lot where chairs and a table are placed.

Compared to the other hotels I looked up this seemed like the best value. I was not disappointed. It's clean, staff was friendly, and it's about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. There is a grocery store close by and a 24 hour donut shop across the street. Yikes. The breakfast was fine. Hard boiled eggs, some fruit, bagels,...

We had three nights here and based on traveller reviews asked for a first floor room at the back of the property away from the busy main road. It was one of the larger rooms (140) and was spacious enough for us. The accommodation was fine and there was a limited daily breakfast included. On location I would say it's...
