This is one of those old motels from the 60's that hasn't been upgraded any more than necessary to keep going. There is no restaurant, lounge or coffee shop attached. The bedding and towels are well used, but clean. There is a coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The bed is comfortable. TV reception is good, but there is no menu...

First off, I'd like to say that I always stay at this venue because they have a full kitchen in a room with 2 beds. Its really close to the water, they have a pool. Its just great. They apparently sold to new owners. I loved the other family who used to run it. The new owners are hard to...

Stay here because we were visiting family and bringing our dog with us. We were warmly welcomed. Owners even said "JOE" could come and paly with their fur babies and they would watch him if we needed to go somewhere he couldn't go.

we stumbled upon this place looking for something "inexpensive." the rooms are large, and many have FULL kitchens and large bathrooms, making this a nice location for an extended stay. (we've stayed for long weekends or a full week.) staff is always very friendly and accommodating. the pool is well-maintained and a nice little "extra." the buildings/rooms themselves are older...

Owners were very helpful & friendly. The rooms were clean but a little "dark". This year we'll try to stay in the back part that has been re-modeling and updated. Looking forward to staying here again!

Has to be the worst motel I've ever been to. As soon as we opened the door I knew it was a bad idea. There were holes all over the walls. Pulled the cover off and found hair on the sheets, torn blankets. The carpet must have been glued on it was so dirty and ripped at the edges. The...

Better than the Bates Motel but.... I am easy to please. I like little family-owned roadside motels. I don't care about frills. I read here how clean and cozy this place was and made my plans. What I found was a no-smoking room that smelled like a frat party including upchuck, furnishings including bedspreads and mattresses at least 20 years...

No complaints at all. The pluses include excellent water pressure, clean room, precious owners, great price, great location, and the micro and fridge in a room this cheap were surprising. I stayed here years ago and loved it then just as much as I did tonight.

We stayed here for a ball tournament because the 'name brand' hotels were sold out. The price was fantastic and the rooms were so clean. We had stayed in a name brand last weekend at another location and this one was much better. The carpets were new and clean and the bed linens were fresh and very nice. They were...

Looked like it would be a nice little spot to stay, until first room was the smell of mold second room they put us in was good until the hot water line broke. Then because it was late and didn't want to go find another motel, the new room was nice at first until I felt like I had visitors...
