The location to the beach is a big plus for this motel. The room was spacious and it was convenient to park right in front of your unit. The owners were very friendly. There is a coin washer and dryer in the back that is convenient to do laundry. Great stay!

Mid July visit with my girlfriend. This motel was super clean and the staff was very nice. Location: It is roughly a three minute walk to the beach. While it stinks it's not on the beach for the money we saved it was worth it. If you stay here you will need a car. The only places in walking distance... More

Stayed here for a week after being injured at another motel, I loved how this ma made me feel, like they really cared. In this day and age, these places are few and far between... REALLY like this place and recommend it.
