The motel is clean and well kept. Ample parking and no drive through traffic is allowed. The front desk is helpful and friendly with discount coupons, brochures and local knowledge and advice. The room itself is on a par with Super 8 accommodations, which is a cut above Motel 6. Furnishing and bedding are designed to endure ocassional sand, though a courtyard hose is provided for foot and leg rinse off before entering your room. The plumbing was in good condition and there was both central air and an overhead fan. Neither interfered with sleep. If you are not used to it, the traffic noise from Pacific Coast Highway is noticeable. If it is a concern, take a Benedryl and sleep through the night undisturbed. Too, like all motels, the walls always seem thinner than they are at home.
Early check in was a big plus as was a special rate for the kiting event we attended. We also appreciated that we could park our car in front of our room. At other big hotels in the area, there is underground parking. If you have valuables and do not wish to bring them into your room each night, being near the car is a real plus.
In conclusion, this motel is not a destination resort. However, if you mean to spend time in Surf City USA, minutes from the sand and a few minutes more from the shopping area, this is a good choice...complete with funky plastic room fob and a metal key ;}
