We were in one of the motel-like units (ground floor, north side, parking out front). Nice clean rooms and quite well-provided but otherwise nothing special - just fine for an overnight, which was all we needed, and decent value. We did like the proximity to...More

Just returned home after a long weekend stay at John Yancey, and let me say that we loved it! The staff were friendly and helpful, and they're working on improving the general appearance (painting, etc). We literally stepped off of our decking and onto the...More

Correct, there is a new project going on across the street. The pilings will be completed this winter so shouldn't bother us come Spring. We do recommend our oceanfront rooms which would be far from the noise - and not to mention the great ocean...More

Ok admittedly the exterior needs renovation...but don't let that be a deterrent, because although it is a bit dated on the exterior, it happens to be very clean. The interior is nothing fancy either but again it has comfortable beds and the room was extremely...More

We don't have any smoking rooms anymore (starting 2017). We do have some areas where you can smoke however but not in rooms.
