I’d give them a 3. Pros: Greeted immediately and front desk staff very pleasant. Bike rental on-site was great! Cleaning staff worked hard And did a nice job. Great location. Cons: Facility very dated and room sizes inconsistent as we had two rooms and paid the same rate for each room and one room almost 50% larger. The one was incredibly small with no dresser or location inside to set suitcases to shuffle clothes. The resort fee was a joke. Pools were cold and not nice at all. There is no resort so that was disappointing.

Having three pools was very nice. Never crowded. Being located not far from Duvall or the beach were part of the reason I chose this motel. I was not disappointed.

Location was good to see places of interest. Bus stop was close. Room rates were a little pricey for what you are getting.

It's a basic, old-style motel. Few amenities. Free continental b'fast. It's nicely kept up, but don't expect all the bells & whistles. Location is near trolley & loop bus stops, and away from the crowds. We liked the private patio, do ask for one. The whole property and rooms are clean and tidy. There's a bar next door which plays loud music outside in the evening. We enjoyed the entertainment, but if you don't, ask for a room further from the bar. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Overall, we'd stay here again because it suited our style.

Beautiful location. One of the best prices we found. Staff was nice and helpful. Clean but dated. The BATHROOM in our room needed some serious updating. Ever hear of these new fangled vent fan thingys all the kids are raving about??? The closet was larger than the bathroom. We will stay here again... (CHEAP and CLEAN) but we will bring our own box fan to air out the tiny bathroom after a shower.
