Great Place to Stay
Great little family run motel close to town, but very quiet. Good kitchen with plenty of utensils, etc and adequate bathroom. Bed, pillows and bedding were all very good. Motel is older style, but clean and well maintained -perfect for our stay. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

I never usually write reviews but this motel deserves one. The lovely owners will do anything you ask to help you. They keep this place spotlessly clean, the bed is fabulous, the carpet is new and soft. The location is perfect. 2 minutes walk to the beach. 3 minutes walk to downtown, so it is convenient yet still away from the noise and (few) crowds. The best cafe and best restaurant (with a discount) are 2 minutes walk away. I was so sad to leave such a lovely place! Thank you.
