2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner, Traveled with pets
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The cleanliness of bathroom floor was bad. I had to clean it myself so that my puppy, who roams around and jumps on bed, was able to move around freely. One of the hand towels had faint color (mascara or something) on it and was folded to be invisible. It seems that housekeeping did not do their job. One of the table lamps (by the bed) was tilted and could fall. No body had bothered to fix it. Out of three bulbs attached under the fan, two were non operational. I had to call the manager using my cell phone. Ho stopped by promptly and changed one bulb. He stated that he had only one bulb in his inventory. The hotel phone would not work. It seemed working (faint dial tone) upon every time picking up and would die immediately. When I asked the manager about it, while he stopped by to change the bulb, his response was that all property phone were non operational due to some maintenance issue. The television was initially not working, The power cord to it had been yanked out from behind its stand. It was fixed. The friendliness of manager left a lot to be desired. I asked my girlfriend to interact with him because he had some issue with me. I am man! He was polite to her. During our visit, police came and were seen questioning a set of guests for some reason. It created commotion and noise. The yard had left over dog poop and I had to restrain my dog from certain areas. Over the course of my visit (two nights), no body cleaned that mess.

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was dirty there was hair on the bed and behind the bathroom door and under the toilet seat. Also the power went out at 8:00 pm and did not come back on until 8 am the next morning. Also it was a bit noisy due to parents letting there children run wild on property grounds. I will never stay here again nor recommend.

4/5 Good

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Beautiful location and courtyard. Room was cozy but nice. Amenities all worked as advertised and the bed was very comfy. Staff were extremely helpful all around. Only cons were no AC (that I could find) but since it’s a cool area with a sea breeze that wasn’t much of an issue, and on the last night of our stay the power went out for some reason and didn’t come back on until well into the morning. Very easy to walk to the beach from the motel and plenty of nice restaurants around to also walk to or drive to within 10 mins. Overall great place for little excursions and getaways on a small-medium budget.
