No easy access to beach. You have to go thru a private RV site and then there is a very steep slope that takes you down to the beach but then you have to climb over a huge concrete slab..don’t bother!! Too dangerous!! The picture seen in the ad is taken from across the street..the water fountain is not on the property. The ‘beach volleyball’ is a load of sand dumped between the highway and the building. Inadequate lighting in stairwells. This motel is on a highway and could be noisy. The mini fridge, microwave and Keurig were plugged into an extension cord that was plugged into the same outlet that the wall air conditioning was plugged into. I asked if this was safe and was told that they hadn’t had any issues. Poor lighting in room, no bedside lamps in the room I was in. Having a shower was a nightmare as the water temp was inconsistent and was nearly scalded more than once. Front desk staff were friendly. You need to ask for room to be made up as this motel does not offer daily housekeeping as ‘every day is earth day’. Your room key apparently gets you free mini putt across the street (where the water fountain is).

VG Room but with too much night light
Wonderful stay. Great staff. Updated room, but wooden slat window blinds do not keep light out. Loved the free mini-golf.

Good affordable place for a stay
Great location close to the beach. It was convenient to have a kitchenette, but there really was only one chair to sit and eat unless you ate from your bed. The bed was comfortable and you could see that there were some cosmetic upgrades to freshen up the room a bit (ie: paint and floors), but you could tell that some of the furniture was a bit older. Our room was on the second floor, and we took the stairs up from the lobby. Not sure if theres an elevator though. Overall, a well priced and comfortable place to stay.
