Birthday getaway

My husband and I had a great time at this hotel. It was my birthday and we wanted to relax on the beach. The beach here is very clean and nice. The hotel is directly on the beach. It was very clean and nice. We had a kitchenette. It was a small area but had a full size refrigerator and stove. We needed our own cooking utensils however. No pans were furnished. Only a flat griddle. The beds were very comfortable. We would stay here again and recommend to our friends.

Our stay

We were very pleased with the motel. The room was big and the beds were great, they felt like pillowtop matresses were on them. The motel was right on the beach. The staff was friendly.We ate at the resturant one morning and while my husband said his food was good, mine wasn't as good as it could have been as part of it was undercooked. Also it was overpriced.The only thing that could have been better was if I had been able to get a sea view rather then a street view.

Restful Stop

Spotlessly clean room, comfortable beds. Bathroom very small but acceptable and very clean.Loved the charm of this older hotel. Room had balcony and beach view-beautiful. Can't beat the location-right on the beach! Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel restaurant had a delicious breakfast.

On the beach, but not the best

Incentives: Cheaper hotel if you look at it being ON the beach with indoor pool and hot tub. Beds were comfortable. Problems: Our first room didn't have hot water. Our "2 queen beds was actually one queen and one full size. The elevator frequently went out. The receptionist was rude the first night, but became more hospitable. On site food was good (loved the grits). Indoor pool was freezing; hot tub barely circulated water and basically felt like a warm bath. Kitchens did not have plates, silverwear, pots or anything.

At the beach

I was just driving through town. Needed a place for the night. Their elevator was out for the wing that I was in. The bed was clean and quite comfortable. Although I was not there for the beach on this trip I definitely would this place to stay again
