Sweet little motel on the beach. Amazing location, clean rooms with recent upgrades. Get a 2nd floor room if you can. It is a motel so your room door opens to the parking lot but the beach is right there. Blackout blinds would be nice since the parking lot lights are on all night.

Stay elsewhere. This is a dirty, ratty little motel. Our room was extremely small. The staff was very unfriendly and rude. The walls and celling are paper thin, you will hear everything! Impossible to get good rest. Sure its close to the beach but its ugly and beat up. The nearest beach was covered in flies and a surprising amount of litter. I want my money back.
