God, oh god, book something else
Hands-down the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Bathroom floor was broken and showing bare wood. Bathroom mirror was broken. Bed was old and had huge troughs, sheets were not clean. The entry door was an interior door. There was a power strip full of cords running everywhere. Lamp near the bed went on and off as it jiggled. The TV did not work. The room smelled musty. A stairway to the apartment above was 2 feet from the bed and loud all night. Office was closed and I had to drive a mile down the road to a Days Inn to get the key. Phone number for service did not work.

The room was not clean. No refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot. TV didn't work properly - could not change the channel. Had to watch the weather channel. Worst place I have ever stayed in and way over priced.

4/10 Fair

1970s Everything and mold...At $270 a night!
The location of this (apparently) adorable motel couldn't be better...A block from the beach and the hub of tourism of the city. We got there to find a note on the "office" window to drive to the Days Inn about a mile away (through the middle of previously mentioned tourist hub) to check in. Once we got in the room, it reeks of mold and quite literally everything is out of the 1970s. All the way down to the alarm clock and high flow shower head! Mold in the tiling and in the corners of the bathroom, and in the window. The shower curtain was even torn and there were cobwebs behind the night stand... A room a few doors down from us had no cable, and the people in the room next door had mold in their room as well. This place couldn't pay me to stay again.... but with a little BASIC effort, it could be a great motel.

I don’t know how can recommend this property. It was the worst place anyone could stay. Needs major updates very old for being downtown. Had I known how bad it was I would have stayed somewhere else. Very disappointing.
