My family and I have stayed at this motel at least four times in the last few months. The rooms are a good size and have full size kitchens. There are large kitchen tables, pots and pans, plates, cups etc. The rooms are casual, just perfect if you hang out at the beach a lot. We especially enjoy the rooms onnthe higher floors, where you can see both the sound and the ocean. Beautiful views of the beach and a great place to take in both sunrises and the sunsets. The salt water pool is great and has both a small kitty pool and a hot tub. Both were enjoyed by a number of people...and its October. The staff is friendly and quickly addressed a non working TV fixing the issue and leaving us extra batteries just in case. Cant wait to return again next month for more sunrises and walking on the beach, just a few feet away.
Thank Cathryn C

Small family reunion with multiple rooms and towers booked. This was the second time I’ve stayed here and I don’t think I’ll be back. I was very disappointed because my first stay was much better.
The good- very close to beach, staff super friendly, and hotel is close to everything on the island.
The bad- the water smelled like sulfur in the rooms and the outdoor shower by the pool. When taking a shower after spending all day at the beach the last thing I want to do is take a shower underneath water that stinks. Secondly, during our stay we found roaches in the kitchen (room 100). My nephew was staying in another room and had one crawling on his bed while he was laying there going to sleep. We also saw them on the porches. The hotel is older but that doesn’t mean it has to have roaches. Just have a professional go in there and kill them all because if we saw them in 2 different rooms on opposite sides of the complex then I know other rooms saw them too.
Other than that our stay was great. They just need to fix the smelly water and ROACHES!

It was a windy, stormy night and so the sand had drifted up the stairs and on the porch. It was like snow drifts. Really cool. Room was right on the beach and the next morning it was great to walk the beach. I think that charging $140 per night in off season for a NOT updated room in off season was too much.

Value for money Very basic motel - no hairdryer - no beach towel - no service from any staff and the interior is really old and unkept - The highlight was our room position with good sea view - I would not recommend this motel at the prices they charge and the rooms are really old - rusted sink / plumbing etc

The good - good size fridge, microwave, decent bathroom. Short walk to beach. Pool and (very hot!) hot tub. Ocean Water is still nice temp for wading!

The adequate - Beds adequate. Had to trudge over steep loose sand dune to get to beach - no boardwalk over dune as nearby places had. Beach coarse, shelly - not good for bare feet.

The bad - poor intermittent wi fi, 1990s TV. Water tasted off. Sand at front door, kept tracking in.

I don't know. We rented a 2 BR. Recommend you call the hotel and ask. I found them to be very customer service oriented addressing my questions, over the phone. Regards, TJC
