It's a decent motel. The price is right and they accept small pets for $25 per night. Not many places accept pets and this was a huge reason why we chose to stay here and La Quinta Inn was booked. I'd stay here again if I had pets with me.

We spend plenty of days each year at Choice Hotels and this one was a treat. It is a small property very close to the beach and tons of restaurants. The staff is cordial and easy to work with... we will return next chance!

We had a great time, service was on point. It was walking distance to the beach. It was nice to having a quick breakfast in the morning to prepare for the trip. The only thing was there is a $100 deposit but it won't be charge when you leave.
