    Nothing fancy but a good value for the location. Ocean is steps away and oceanfront rooms include a nice private balcony. Pier and restaurant next door for convenience. Quiet place and perfect if looking for some r&r without all the bells & whistles.

    We made a reservation for 2 nights (Friday and Saturday). We were able to access our room right away. It was nice and clean with fresh towels, etc. This is a regular beachfront Motel, no real frills, but fits the bill nicely!

    That is exactly what they said to my parents and they aren't the only customers that they have said that to if you read the other reviews. I booked an Oceanfront Shared Walkway room on the lower level for my parents. My mother confirmed 3...More

    The handicapped rooms face East. As you exit the room the ocean would be to your right, On that level there is a small dune in the ocean view. But you are less that 30 yrds from the ocean at high tide.
