    The rooms are super clean and nice. Perfect location beside the pier with a nice restaurant. Staff was very friendly and the free popcorn was a hit! We are already planning our next stay. Great room, great location at a great price.

    The motel is dated. The room we stayed in was large and appeared to be very clean. I forgot my slippers and walked around in white socks. They were black from just a few hours walking on the carpet. The staff was very friendly and...More
