One night stay
Nice location, lovely view of ocean and very quiet room. We only stayed overnight but it would be a great location for a holiday base to do day trips from.

I found the room comfortable. The TV was not working well, but the manager changed the batteries in the remote and it was okay. The booklets and the shampoo were out of my reach and the towel rail in the bathroom was missing.

Clean and comfortable
The motel room I stayed in was clean, the bed was comfortable. It had all the basics required. As I was traveling for work I only needed somewhere to rest. The staff were very friendly.
