Stay here as your last option! Oldest motel in Ocean Shores. Not cheap either. My junior suite was 140/night. I think It used to be 2 or 3 different motels that they made into 1 "resort". I stayed in the 2-story building. I've never stayed here before so I thought I would try it because they accept pets, but I...

I did not stay here. I bought gift certificates for my adult children for here. I chose this place because of good location, indoor and outdoor pool and accepts pets. The gift certificate came with stipulations like extra money if stay on weekends, which I told the kids. But when it came to using them, they could not stay on...

I have to admit that I was hesitant about staying here after reading the reviews, however, I took a chance & was pleased. I requested the 3rd floor, for the view. I also asked about Wi-Fi, it is only available in the lobby, not a big deal, I came here to disconnect & enjoy the water view. My room was...

They had enough room for our family of 6, the rooms were clean, a bit dated. but when you have 2 small kids that's just fine because they weren't going to hurt anything! There only drawback was there was no AC, but they did have a fan that when placed in a good location and you opened up the back...

This is a nice hotel and we have stayed here several times. It is nothing fancy but it does have a continental breakfast. They allow pets so if you don't mind dogs barking late in the evening or early in the morning you will be ok. It is very clean place. There was supposed to be free WIFI but it...

I was reading the other reviews and I must agree, summer time pool is very crowded with children. Suggestion maybe make 9:00- 10 adult time. They do have two pools one outside and one in, I must say beds are old. I think they are trying to upgrade but still needs a lot of work. They have added a Cont....
