            Individual guest reviews

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              the clossness to the beach--friendly people that run the motel--very good brunch for the morning--

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              A convenient location for beach and friends. Foggy in summer, but a great beach none the less.

              Poor "continental" breakfast, served on paper plates with plastic cutlery - a facet which completely undermined any other attempts to make the place seem classy.

            • Older travelers
              4.6

              It was close to where my son and his family were camping

              The room was too expensive for what it was. Our room smelled old and musky, kept slider open to help with odor. We were told it was updated - not! The only update to me was the registration area. Will probably not stay there again

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Staff was very friendly and helpful . The hotel was walking distance to the beach . Good property for families traveling with kids.

              The area is a little remote , not many stores or restaurants close by.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The staff was very nice and very close to beach.

              Parking was limited.
