Two Night Stay not worth it!!!

Posted May 9, 2017
Pros: Staff is great!!!
Cons: Rooms are old and not clean.
Location: Many things to do nearby like museums, beaches and eating places. If you are going to be out all day this motel is okay to stay in.
Not a fancy hotel -- only stay if you have no other option.

Close to nearby shopping centers

Posted Apr 29, 2017
The rooms are very dated, although they say it's a hotel it was really a motel, which was deceptive. The place had a very old smell. Everything looked old

Thank you for your feedback. The term "hotel" is a generic one used by the online booking site. We are an Inn/Motel as indicated in our name and on the signs that are in the photos. Happy Travels!

Terrible hotel. Not worth it.

Posted Apr 29, 2017

Good Location, Large Rooms - Needs Basic Upkeep

Posted Apr 21, 2017
Pros: Large rooms, frig in room, convenient location, good parking, good free breakfast, free wi-fi, moderate price
Cons: Basic repair and maintenance - i.e. plumbing, air conditioning/heating, etc.
Location: Located near beach, harbor, large Navy Sea Bee base, local strawberry festival
We stay in this hotel frequently while visiting relatives in the area. Decor is dated but comfortable. Rooms are large and free breakfast is decent. Maintenance has declined over the past few years. Bathroom fixtures needed repair, i.e. fixture to change from shower head to bath faucet and tub stopper did not work, toilet bowl had multiple scratch marks. The welcome hospitality of local newspaper and pastries/fruit in lobby has been discontinued. Ironically, the price has gone up while the quality of the accommodations has decreased. Too bad - I hope the current owners invest in basic repair and refurbishment to keep this nice old hotel alive & thriving.

Love this hotel!

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Pros: the price, the pool, the breakfast, the kitchenette
Cons: 4 towels and 2 extra pillows in the room
Location: the beach and my grandma!
This hotel is a great hotel for a family of 4. We love swimming in the pool and eat waffles at breakfast. It is close to the beach and you can't beat the price. We also enjoy the fridge and microwave in our room.

Casa Via Mar Inn & Tennis Club

Posted Apr 15, 2017
Location: Other than the very expensive hotel on the beach, this motel is the closest to the beach (about 2 miles away) and it's 1/3 the price.
For a moderately priced motel, the hot breakfast was fantastic. You can even make your own waffle. I have a bad back. I expected an uncomfortable bed and was pleasantly surprised.

Nice exterior

Posted Apr 11, 2017
The rooms need to be clean better and they need to air them out.
