    Overall a basic motel but it's clean and tidy. The location is good, it's only 3 mins walk from the beach. Parking and wifi both fine, with a very basic breakfast in the motel reception. For the money it was fine.

    Good location-- a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. Request a room in the main courtyard. We got a room on the outskirts of the building and could hear traffic (and loud emergency vehicles) all night. There is a mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot...More
