My spouse and I eloped in November 2013 and stayed at the Ocean View. Everyone was tremendously kind to us. When I mentioned that it was our honeymoon, we received an upgrade to a lovely suite with a full kitchen and enormous whirlpool tub. The bed was very comfortable and everything was neat and clean. We both have a lot... More

I'm over the moon that we could be a part of your wedding adventure, Rose. There's nothing better than hearing our suite helped create an amazing time for you and your spouse. I know it's been a year, but congratulations and we can't wait to see you again soon! Hope you two are doing well, Penelope, Owner More

I stayed there for the entire winter season way back in 1972. Only $80.00 per month and they even cleaned the room every week. Those were the days. I still ride by the area along the bay and the place still looks the same.

This place is fine for what it is - a motel - but very overpriced. We stayed 2 nights in September 2013 and paid over $300 per night. Rooms are fine - clean, bed comfortable - but very basic (very simple bathroom, minimal toiletries provided, small towels, no tea). The motel is not within walking distance of anything (and if...

Thank you for your review, but there are a few discrepancies in it that I needed to respond to. First one is our pricing which is fair in regards to the service we provide and the pricing of our neighboring motels. Also the price of $275 per night plus taxes is for a weekend stay which is higher than the... More

We spent one night here with two small children and would definitely recommend. We received excellent service especially on leaving when the owner organised our ferry trip (which we'd failed to book ) and recommended how to spend our day. The grounds are very nice - we enjoyed takeaway pizza on one of the picnic tables and the kids loved... More

We stayed overnight on July 23, 2013. Although it was a brief stay, it was a good one. Penny, the owner, could not have been nicer or more accommodating.
