Positive Reviews

Lovely location by the beach

The location of the motel receives a high score from guests. While it is within comfortable walking distance of shops, restaurants, and attractions, the property's position opposite the beach is especially spotlighted as a great advantage of staying.

Free Wi-Fi a bonus

One of the added bonuses of staying at the motel is the inclusion of complimentary Wi-Fi. While generally seen as reliable, visitors are especially pleased that the Wi-Fi is provided on an unlimited basis.

Spacious units with great views

In select areas, guests are happy with the motel's rooms. As well as having a healthy amount of space for moving around, it is said that most rooms offer great views of the beach and ocean.

Negative Reviews

Dated units in need of updating

Visitors make disparaging comments about the overall condition of the motel's units. It is said that the units are showing significant age and distress, with it recommended for them to be updated with new decor and furnishings.

Missing air conditioning

Despite being suitably equipped for the most part, guests point out that the units are missing one significant amenity: air conditioning. As a result, and due to the difficulty in controlling temperatures, it is claimed that the units can become really hot and uncomfortable.

Hygiene with room for improvement

The overall hygiene standards of the motel are a letdown for travellers. From unclean kitchen cutlery to mould in the bathrooms, various cleanliness-related concerns are encountered in the property's units.
