Clean room, friendly staff
Room 223 was near some kind of boiler or mechanical something that made noise all night. View of ocean obstructed by pool house.
Our view was great. The room was typical hotel room with refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. It was very quiet (we were there in off season). Very clean, we loved the view and are looking forward to another stay next spring. The indoor pool is also a plus for cool October weather.
It was a wonderful location right on the beach and close to many shops and restaurants.
This had to be the worst bed we have ever slept in. The floor would have softer. We actually had to take pillow and put them in a row for me to be able to sleep and my husband went and bought memory foam to put on. It helped a little but still unbelievably hard!
The alcove for the second bed gave both of us (two older widows traveling together) privacy. Everything was clean and in good condition. The staff were friendly and helpful. The luggage carts and the elevator were great gifts! We will be back!
Loved sitting out on the small pier all afternoon in the sunshine!
Had constant problems with wifi. Hairdryer in bathroom came loose (looks like wasn't the first time). Could not use the sliding extra set of doors on the balcony. Rusted shut. Noticed a lot of rust throughout the buildings. The hot tub wasn't really a hot tub. part of the pool. Didn't work correctly. Disappointment
The location was excellent and it was perfectly suited for beach activities and easy access to restaurants and shops. Location made for a nice morning jog to the Ferry, then catch a quick shower and lunch at the Tikki bar! Very well equipped gift shop, and the nicest & most helpful folks working at the Front desk!! Highly recommend!!
Room was a little small but who cares! We weren't there to shack up in the hotel the whole weekend and any shortcomings in the room were completely offset by the fabulous ocean view and Tikki bar!! The Wifi is, however, unacceptably slow! Def need an upgrade!
Nice location, with pool and tiki bar. Room was very clean. Owner works there, he's nice and you can tell he takes pride in his place.
There was a flowery fragrance that I figured was a carpet/room air freshener or sprinkle-thing. It was a pleasant smell, but a bit too strong and overwhelming when entering the room. Also, I prefer to use the stairs when staying in non-high rise places and these stairwells could've used a good sweeping.
The motel was right on the beach.
I reserved a room with 2 queens but when we got there we were placed in a 2 full room. These are not the same size. We were forced to either sleep apart or be uncomfortable. The front desk argued with me and told me I was wrong. Not going back!
Our room was very nice and clean. Great location and great view. Would stay there again for sure!
The only thing That could've been better, would be a bigger balcony. :-)
closeness to beach, nice place to have dinner. really loved the convenience of the location. already planning another trip. only 4 hrs from home.
Excellent views from the fifth floor balcony. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Was perfect.
We loved the ocean-view balcony & falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves crashing. We loved the proximity to the beach and other fun sites. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and we feel that the price was well-worth it!
The free wi-fi didn't work in our room, though it connected while my laptop was at the front desk (near the router). However, the front desk was very nice about helping.
everythink was good
No breakfast, not really a lobby.
beds very comfortable.
not enough parking.
Nice location away from congestion - yet close. Will visit again . . . .
Low rise toliets - WiFi in and out.
My Husband died one month ago and this was my first on my own. I was looking for solitude and found it there.
Toaster didn't work!
The people at the front desk were great. They were very friendly! We loved the location. Very quiet and peaceful
Everything was good.
Right there on the beach and had 2 pools.
The bed wasn't comfortable for me, but my family loved them.
Room was large Very Clean
Location, on-site restaurant was the absolute best, great room and the friendliest, most helpful front desk service.
Not one thing took away from our stay!
The view was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable and, although the balcony was a bit small, it is still a big plus. The staff was friendly and helpful. Last but certainly not least is the pier with a tiki bar!
I expected a continental breakfast but plenty eateries within walking distance.
location. comfortable bed
small shower, loud a.c.
The bed, I want that bed. The restaurant, food was yummy. The views, great views.
The carts they were rickety The balcony was very small
