The Good: Great location - friendly staff - Good price The bad: Downstairs room can hear anyone walking upstairs - Unfortunately, we had a walker for all of Saturday night upstairs which disturbed our sleep. Following 2 nights were very quiet so it is somewhat the luck of the draw. Note this is a lower cost motel so the amenities were comparable to such type of property.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Please don’t book this hotel on a Sunday night check in!!! We reached the property at 905 PM. There was no person at the check in desk. They had put up a notice to call a phone number upon which they would assist late check ins. I called for nearly an hour from 9-10 PM. No one answered. We checked into another hotel meanwhile. The Incharge person calls me back at 1130 PM when I have hit bed elsewhere!!! And he/she has reported to the manager that they called back but I dint pick!! Overall a terrible experience. My advice is always book a hotel which is a standard brand (Hampton inn, Hilton, best western) even if it’s costlier.

The staff was perfect. Extremely friendly and helpful. They pool and hot tub were closed but look nice. We did use the washer and dryer during out stay and was able to purchase laundry soap at the front desk. I enjoyed that it was close enough to walk big attractions but also quiet enough to have peace. They do offer $5 passes through a 3rd party to a semi private beach which we did use. I think there were many other beaches that were free and much prettier.
