Only reason I recommend this hotel is because of its location. And yes, it was clean.

When 1st thing you hear about motel is "It's clean" you knows its ng.
Arrival: See basic (not ,pretty) motel. Stark, no flowers or the like.
Check in: I asked about location of room & was told, "Check it out, but it is what it is." Not welcoming. Most staff need customer service training.
Room: i notice:
1) Doesn't smell & clean. Good news.
2))Faded chairs, cheezy pictures, small old TV, ugly bedspreads, no phone/alarm clock. Bad news.
3) PAPER bath mat. Rediculously bad news.
(Got extra bath towel to replace paper mat.)
The pool is small but ok.
Nice rooftop deck. Nothing fancy, but nice view.
General maintanience needs some work: peeling paint, small cracks in plastic chairs.
Wi-Fi - but only works outside of room sitting on ugly plastic chair.
Ice machine, clothes line, and outside shower spicket ARE the amenities.
Location was best part:
Across street from beach.
Bike rental around corner.
Walking distance to mall,shopping,restaurants,Victorian houses.
BUT: City convention cener is under construction directly across street. For next year, it will be eye sore & mildly noisy. When finished it will block views.
When all was said & done, the place 'grew on us' - but that probably was more a reflection of a good mother-daughter vacation than the motel itself.
Next time to the cape: I'll stay elsewhere
