    This motel is pretty basic and to be honest our room wasn't particularly clean which would put me off staying again.The bathroom needed a good scrub and there were marks on the duvet. However, it was cheap and the staff were accommodating.

    The title says it all! Check-in was quick. A good place to when in a pinch, and one is not concerned about amenities The rooms are very basic. Staff members were friendly and courteous. Parking is free but limited.

    Safe. 5 minutes to beach. Better beaches with parking, portapotties, good sand, and fewer people extend to Sand City. Find a website that offers sub $45 weekday rates.
