This Motel is horrible, very old, not clean I would recommend to stay elsewhere! Alex at reception was very sweet and loved us to a different room but even that room was bad. I will never go back here again!!!!

View of the beach was the best part of the hotel. The hotel is dated, but clean. Location was very good. One of the two front office staff at check in was welcoming. Even upon check out, not even a "thank you" for staying with us was uttered by the front office staff.

It felt pretty clean overall. The sheets were a bit scratchy for my taste, but I brought my own blanket and that seemed to help. Overall, it felt very clean. The check-in process what a bit daunting considering there was a mile-long line at around 3:45 when we decided to get a head start

We arrived to the property early before check in. The hotel reception gave us our beach badges early so that we could relax on the beach while our room was being prepared.
