This is quite a jewel. Read the wonderful reviews and they are correct!!!! Room is very clean, decorated nicely. Comfortable bed, everything as advertised. Just a very short walk to the beach. Will definitely come back.

Found this thru Trip Advisor. If your looking for an inexpensive, CLEAN, nice place to stay that is quiet and a few steps from the beach, this is it. Older, but in good shape, nice pool. Owner on premises, she cares about her guests and it shows.

We had a one night stay here and found the room fairly small but very clean and comfortable. Really lovely location by the beach and just a 20 minute stroll along the beach to the pier and town centre. Very good, friendly, attentive service too.

We took a night out and decided to get a room at the beach. We booked online through a website that hides the property when you book. And this was the hotel selected for about $85 a night. I was a bit disappointing with the booking but when we arrived, I was impressed. First of all the service desk (Scott)... More

This is an older hotel, but overall very nice and clean. The bathroom was VERY clean with super-white grout! Linens and towels very nice. Pool and grounds clean, too. The owner at the front desk was available and helpful for any questions we had. There were some very noisy guests after 10pm, and the owner took care of the problem.... More

SUPER FRIENDLY! My husband considers me a "hotel snob". I consider myself "selective". Although this an aged hotel, it's comfortable and most importantly Clean. The bathrooms are new with yellow tile, new commode, new tube and new fixtures. We stayed in #21, it was small, but cozy. I liked it. I liked the location, the people, the size. The pool... More

This little hidden gem is rather old but very clean and the location is great - only 100 feet from the beach. They have beach chairs and coolers for the beach at no charge. Their pool is the cleanest nicest pool I've seen anywhere. They are friendly and do everything to make your stay pleasant. And its a good value.... More
