Nice Motel
Overall it was good. Parking was limited.

Nice rooms/location, but breakfast could be better
This hotel has a great location within walking distance to restaurants, the downtown, and beach areas. The rooms are a little outdated, and are scheduled for renovation; but we found them fine. The only real downside is the breakfast really isn't enough. It's basically some toast with juices. They offer a hot menu, but it's not includes in the breakfast with the room. But again, the rooms and location are nice; we just had to go find breakfast elsewhere to get full.

Very nice
Nice, clean, spacious room with comfortable bed and friendly managers. Simple continental breakfast included in room cost. No microwave - not sure why, as I always expect to have one.

Great Motel, Great Location
Really friendly, helpful staff ... simple, quick check-in, perfect location ... parking was a nightmare! Room could use a table to eat at, minor issue, otherwise excellent.

A good place to stay on a sleepy Sunday night.
Check in was quick and efficient, parking was a bit tight but we found a spot near the entrance and the room was large and nicely set out. Only issue was the note about how smoke or steam could easily set off smoke alarm and we would be liable for the hefty fee if the fire brigade responded to a false alarm. To avoid we had to shower with the bathroom door closed and this resulted in a steamy bathroom which made using the mirror difficult. Otherwise all fine and free continental breakfast was a nice bonus.
