Clean and basic. Great location, close drive to the beach and close to shops and restaurants. Went to Casperson beach to look for shark's teeth and then to Sharky's after for sunset and dinner. Wonderful! Detwiler's Market was fun for food shopping.

We had to stay in this motel because of a last-minute business need (not vacation). The grounds and room were neat and it seems they put in effort to keep the place that way. The good point was that you can open the bathroom window (with effort) for fresh air. One drawback is that the motel is right on a...

This is a great family run motel. The rooms had a lot to offer, although small, including: a table for two, microwave, frig, and coffee pot. The pool is heated, there is an ice machine and washer/dryer. It was close to the beach, town and shopping.

Our objective was to be near a bike rental store and within reasonable distance to the fabulous bike trails in Venice which we accomplished. The hotel cleanliness and amenities surpassed our expectations. The owner was always available to answer questions and service your needs. We would stay here again on another visit.

An older property kept in excellent condition by the current owners. A family operation. Owners work to keep everything in the units and outdoor areas in good condition. Nice heated pool. Would recommend this property.
