This hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Rooms were spacious, clean and beds were very comfortable. The room had a nice sofa for sitting and a mini refrigerator and microwave. Great hot breakfast served each morning. Centrally located.

Maintenance has been good and everything in the room worked well. (Internet often slow but that's typical) this motel fit our needs perfectly well. It's not fancy but clean, comfortable and quiet.

I called and inquired about dog friendliness and was told it's just a $20 fee and booked my room online. Upon check in I was told they are out of dog friendly rooms and denied my check in. I had to find a new hotel last minute with a pregnant wife and my dog. It was very unpleasant and the...

stangboris thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. First, we would like to apologize for the misunderstanding regarding the pet friendly rooms. Upon further investigation we were unaware that you did have a pet, as the online booking did not state a pet would also be arriving. Being conscious that some guests have pet allergies,...

This hotel has two floors with exterior room entries. Very convenient if you are there for the beach of fishing. You park your vehicle right outside your room. Nice pool. Breakfast. The hotel has been updated recently and has nice new wood flooring-----no carpet for beach-goers! When we stayed, the rooms were so fresh & clean!!!
