Wendy's is a block away and Subway is two blocks away.There is a sports bar nearby and the room was quiet. My room was... More

The place was built in the 60's, it is older. We just wanted somewhere to sleep and shower, it fit the bill. Don't expect a 5 star. People at the office area were nice and helpful. Our towels and beds were clean. Any time we asked for fresh we got it.

This place is dirty. And the people in charge are arrogant. It smelled musty and the rooms aren't carpeted. They charged my credit card without me signing for a parking pass. Not a good place to stay.

Very dissapointing, not what i expected, one of the bed was missing the boxspring !!!!, Bathroom and the towels dirty. Pool small . The only thing good about this motel is it's very close to the beach.

I would give this place no stars if I could because this motel was horrible. It says suites and inn on the website but it's just a motel. Our room was dirty, our outlet by the bed was broken, found a dead bugs behind the bed and the floor looked like it never got swept. The bathroom was just disgustingly... More

We booked this hotel because in the travel guide it said that there was a kitchenette and it had the cookware and utensils that we would need. When we got there, we did not find any of those items. When we asked about them we were told that they do not do that anymore. This is false advertisement!! We did... More

Do not book here! Not worth the money!! There is too much to say so I will try to keep it short. My experience here was not good. You are hit in the face with a strong curry spicy smell when you walk in the tiny lobby/office. It took the man about 25 minutes or so to check me in.... More

When we originally got here, our room was wrong but that was because we booked it wrong. The people at the front desk were very understanding and got us the room we needed! Very kind staff and very nice location. Will be back again!
