This great little motel is a block from the beach. It was newly renovated and very clean. We had an ocean view from our little deck on the second floor. The location is close to all the cute downtown shops, too. I also love that they have chairs, umbrellas, and boogey boards to borrow. I will definitely stay there again!

If you're a family, the room has an extra room for the kids. There is a full sized kitchen, with a slightly smaller than normal fridge. But it is not a mini fridge, it is full sized. Staff is very friendly, and rooms are very clean. Also, they have an area where you can borrow beach accessories, such as chairs and boogie boards. It is within walking distance to the beach, so that's a huge plus. Area surrounding motel is very nice as well.
