Great location and value!
This place is cute! It's been recently remodeled and so the rooms look nice and are comfortable. They are on the small side but given their walkable proximity to all the best places, and the fact that most would only be using to sleep/get ready in, it's perfect. There was a note about parking being an issue. The spots are on the smaller size and there isn't enough for a car for each room, but upon coming back even after 1am we were able to find street parking super close. It could be a different story if there is a major event going on.

Meh... Old and tiny!
I was hopeful for this hotel after reading the reviews. Although it had a fresh coat of paint in recent years, the rooms are VERY tiny. Our two queen beds left six inches between the AC unit and the bed. The other bed had six inches of room between the bed and the corner to get to the "closet." I am not even going to mention the tiny shower stall. I dropped the soap and had had trouble bending down to retrieve it! I can't imagine how a larger person would do in a shower of this size. The only positive things I can say, is that it is cheap and walking distance to the downtown and the beach. The beach however, they do charge an entrance fee......

Pleasant stay
Free strong coffee/tea in the office. No breakfast. WIFI did NOT work. Room was quiet, very comfortable, very clean, and very quiet. I would recommend this motel to friends, family, and colleagues. If you have a smart mobile you can do without the WIFI. I didn't complain about the WIFI because I really didn't care if I had access to computer or not.

Icky Room
Pros: great location, walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Cons: You get the sense that owners don't care about their property. You don't get a coffee pot in room. The room is TINY and you only get one chair even though there is a small table for dinning, one chair. No closet, just a pole with hangers in the open. (See pic) Bed sheets are so threadbare and worn out, I would have thrown them away by now. Pillows smell dirty, they need be replaced, or at least washed. Bring your own. When our wastebasket was full we couldn't empty ourselves outside because the hotel dumpster was full for a week. The shower is teeny tiny, with no place to hang your soap, shampoo or washcloths. There was a small pile of trash in the corner of the bathroom all week, floors never cleaned. (see pic) The TV remote didn't work, when we complained, the attendant just changed our batteries, didn't really care. Security concern: the door had a double lock, but we were not allowed to lock as we left for the day, we were told that the lock is for the manager to get in if he needs to. (what?) The reason I say this property is dirty and they don't care, the Manager/Owner wore the same clothes the entire time we were there. Signs of being dirty everywhere. We could not cancel due to agreement with, we managed the best way we could and we will never return. Its cheap for a reason.

More than it appears.
You know the old adage "don't judge a book by its cover", well that saying applies to this hotel. The outside exterior is pretty plain, but inside the rooms are nice for the price. It has been remodeled earlier this year so please disregard the reviews before then. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is perfectly nestled in between the beach and the main plaza. Definitely will be back here again.
