We pass through this area at least once per year and often stay at this motel. We understand that this is budget accommodation, but I still expect it to be immaculately clean, which it was far from being this trip. I'm afraid we'll be finding somewhere else in future as I will not tolerate a lack of cleanliness. I also...

Small room but when we visit the beach we aren't indoors much. Pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness & quick response from staff, very friendly. No fridge/microwave or blow dryer but I expected that. Considering the price of neighboring hotels, can't beat this cost!

Place was decorated with modern furniture. No carpet.... it had laminate floors. Very clean. Friendly check-in staff. Area was quiet and there was a shopping center near by. I definitely would stay there again.

We stayed here in July 2016. Check in experience great, they gave us a room by pool as requested, and we enjoyed the pool, which is large, and nice temp, a lot! It all went downhill when we found roaches in our room---climbing the wall, in the bathroom, and on floor by bed. Called front desk, at 9:30 at night,...

This motel is in a nice area with a safe feeling. The room was very clean and nicely updated. I was dissappointed not to have a hair dryer in the room (I have very long hair) and one was not available when I called the front desk. There is laundry on site, but not ATM or change machine. All of...

Place is easy to get to off the fwy. Staff had my request for a ground floor room, 1st room they gave me wasn't made up but quickly gave me another room without any issue. AC worked great and makes white noise which helped me sleep good. Shower was hot and had good water pressure. The room has a solid...

Stayed here for a couple of nights January 8th and 9th. Not a bad room, renovated from the old run down motel 6 we used to stay in 5 years ago. So yes it is better. Shopping center within walking distance. The thing I can't stand is having to stay a couple of days without a microwave or even a...

I found it very expensive for what it is. The hotel is located just by the highway so it can get pretty noisy. The room was not clean as expected and the extra cost for internet is pretty annoying too.
