we loved being that close to the ocean... and that our pet was welcome on the beach. we loved your helpful staff... very personable, helpful folk. we did not like the fact that there was no designated "spot" for our dog to walk/potty. we did not like the bathroom configuration, nor the fact that there was carpet in the room. all our other dog friendly rooms had vinyl flooring, which smells fresher, easier to clean up any dogfood spills, and is what our dog is used to.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The rooms need major updating. Everything is old and worn out. The bed and bedding were uncomfortable and old. The floors looked dirty. There was barely any hot water. And they say no smoking, but there was a steady stream of smoke smell coming from a panel in my bathroom. Very sub par. The only thing that was decent was the refrigerator. And the walls were paper thin. I could hear conversations a dog barking in the room next to me, and people talking outside the motel until 3am. I would not recommend this motel if you are used to any kind of standards.
