Positive Reviews

Walkable location

According to reviews, the motel is located in a very walkable area. Guests mention being able to walk to shopping areas, restaurants, a cinema, and the beach within ten minutes.

Kitchenettes are well stocked

Guests mention that the kitchenettes have all of the utensils and tools needed to prepare a meal or store food and beverages in their rooms. It is also reported that they are stocked with complimentary tea, coffee, and sugar, and that the motel provides free milk during check-in.

Soundproof windows

Guests are impressed by how quiet the rooms are despite the motel being located next to a busy road. Windows apparently have thick double-pane glass to keep out sounds, which guests appreciate.

Negative Reviews

Small pool

Guests note that the pool on the property is not very big, which is disappointing for anyone who plans to swim laps.

Rooms without a great view

According to reviews, the views from some rooms are not very attractive since they face the road. It is also mentioned that the beach is not actually visible from any of the motel's rooms.

Unlimited Wi-Fi can be confusing

Reviewers report that accessing the unlimited Wi-Fi is not explained well during check-in, which causes some confusion about whether or not it is truly unlimited. They mention thinking they are limited to 1GB of data per day, not realising subsequent amounts of data are actually available free of charge.
