Russ and Carol make this Motel so welcoming, it's like staying with Friends!! The room was great, very clean and the beds comfortable with plenty of pillows. The door that opens to the back with a view of the beach was worth every penny!! Continental breakfast, very delicious muffins and biscuits, yogurt, fruit and tea/coffee, a firepit, a beach view and board games for the chilly evening.........everything was fabulous!! I cannot wait to go back!!

We found the owners polite, friendly and easy to work with. We stayed in a cottage and found that it met our needs well. Lots of hot water for those after beach washes. A genuinely positive experience. My only caution would be for persons with sensitivities to mold that you may wish to book a room in the motel rather than a cottage as there are indicators of black mold on the ceiling, but this presented no trouble for us.

Fabulous view of the beach from our room; I slept like a log to the sound of waves. While some things may need updating, overall this is a great place. Could stay here for a while with the efficiency amenities.

Okay, let me start by saying if you are looking for high end and flashy this is not the place. If you are looking for excellent service, clean and comfortable with an amazing location this is the place for you. My wife and I stayed there last night and it was amazing from check in to check out. The room was clean and comfortable. While the rooms are dated they are impeccably maintained. The beds are so very comfortable (and we are picky about that) and the views are out of this world. Just steps away from an amazing beach! Russ welcomes us on arrival and showed us the room. He was friendly and personable. Ignore the people who say he was too bossy. Keep in mind this is a small property so one person not adhering to common decency will ruin everyone’s stay. He checked in with us a couple of times (when he was passing by) to make sure everything was okay. He recommended dinner at an amazing restaurant and even made our reservations. Our room overlooked the ocean and there were two comfortable Adirondack chairs for us to sit, read our books and enjoy the view. To our great surprise there was coffee (good coffee) and fresh cheese biscuits and muffins in the lobby in the morning. Again, an amazing value added feature. All in all, the location can not be beat! The motel is well maintained and comfortable and the price is right! I will certainly be recommending this property to my friends!

What a fabulous hidden gem! Russ and Carol were amazing hosts, from offering us towels for the beach to making us reservations for supper! Very nice clean rooms with a beautiful view of the ocean. They were very friendly and made a great getaway even better with their hospitality! I would definitely recommend this place. Very quick walk to the beach where we spent hours collecting shells and sea glass, sadly too cold to swim, but beautiful nonetheless. Looking forward to going back.
