    Sweet old fashioned motel rooms that have been updated. The norm was near town. The staff was polite & helpful. Our room had a little porch, cute furnishings & frig. The exterior was nice with a pool, grill. The motel was near shopping & restaurants.

    Nice, average motel. The best feature is location: 3min drive to the beach or 15min walk on main roads to the beach. Also, the front desk gave us a 10$ off parking voucher for surrounding beaches. Big comfortable pool. The ocean isn't really visible from...More

    My wife cannot walk well at all. Are there rooms that do not require stairs, i.e. on the ground floor or is there an elevator if on the upper floors?

    It's been a while since I've stayed there. I don't recall if they allow pets. You can call them and ask. They are usually very friendly and helpful.
