You get what you pay for
The room was fairly clean however, they offered the bare minimum with towels and toiletry items. The room did not contain a remote control for the television. And you could hear every single sound from surrounding rooms. Also, this facility does not have an ice machine. Location was decent. Parking seemed to be an issue, not enough.

Horrible experience
Notvthw correct location. They putvus a a different hotel then we picked. Further away from town. Not walking distance. The room was dirty there were dead bugs on the window seals. There was dust and dirt on walls and around vents. The lights did not work nor did the lamps. They were even plug in. Only one out that could be found. Nasty stain of god knows what on the couch. When i text they said they could change room. For a up charge but they would be smaller. I dont know how they could get any smaller than we had. The floors were dirty. Ig made gor a horrible time. If we needed any supplies we have to drivevto a different location and self service what we needed. The tv didnt work. Just overall unhappy. We are just ordinary people that work hard 6 days a weekk 13 hours days and saved so we coukd justvhave a weekend away. It was a very horrible experience

Won’t stay here again.
Disappointing. Promised laundry availability turned out to be the one washer and dryer used by housekeeping for the entire property, only available when all sheets and towels were done (nearly never). First room we were in, the tv didn’t work and the shower had a leak that created an inch-plus flood in the bathroom. Moved to a second room, a little better - no leak but low on hot water, missing bulb in bedside lamp, and a general feeling of an old beach town motel - not in a good way.

Buyer Beware!
We booked our stay at a hefty price tag compared to other options in the area. We cancelled upon arrival and despite the owner agreeing to refund our stay, once we contacted the 3rd party they refused to refund the entire stay. We stayed 1 night since we were forced to pay it. Hot water heater took two showers to get above lukewarm. No extra blankets/pillows left for pullout couch/rollaway. Shower leaked and nearly flooded bathroom floor. Mattress was horrid and rollaway cot was even worse. We didn't dare open the couch. 4 standard pillows on a king bed and when we asked about additional pillows were told this should suffice for King Bed, Rollaway, and pullout couch. We ended up using cushions from the furniture as pillow. No extra towels, not even enough towels for the 4 of us. Laundry is out in front and is not well maintained. It was rather shocking the pricetag for the service. Though is close to the beach, still would not walk with a family. We looked at 2 rooms and one at another location and both were bad. Air wasn't even on in other room. Air in the room we booked wouldn't shut off and we froze all night and couldn't keep warm and had no access to additional amenities. The whole experience put a massive damper on our trip to the area and spent two vacation days trying to find a new place to stay. Do not recommend for the price paid. If you're paying $50 a night maybe - I've not even stayed at a low dollar motel in similar condition.

The location of this property cannot be beat. It is right next to St. Armand’s circle and walking distance to the beach. Otherwise, it leaves a lot to be desired. Despite the place being clean, it still felt disgusting. It also doesn’t feel particularly secure. We only stayed here because it was a busy weekend in the area, and my parents were staying two streets over. Thankfully they had a pool and other beach gear.
