I chose the Beachside Motel for a girls' getaway with my mom and sister, attracted by the reasonable rates and positive online reviews. It exceeded my expectations. Check-in was simple and we found our room to be clean and comfortable. We didn't make full use of the appliances (refrigerator, microwave, coffeepot) or dishware/silverware, but it was nice to know they...

Excellent stay here. I highly recommend this hotel. The staff was beyond nice, so friendly and helpful. The manager, Marcy, helped us to move to an ocean side room which we fell in love with. The cleaning staff did an excellent job and I had fun conversations with them, felt like I found new friends! Thank you Marcy and staff,...

Contact this hotel directly and you'll probably get a better price that through a discount provider. Myra was on the desk when we arrived and was very helpful with getting us extra coffee supplies for our early departure the next morning before the office opened for breakfast. Be warned that there is no elevator and that toilets are not ADA...

From the outside, this place looks good. But right now, I'm sitting in my room hearing every word of a conversation the people in the next room are having, and not because they're yelling, because the walls are paper thin. Last night I couldn't sleep because of the noise from the karaoke at the restaurant across the street. The room...

Thank you for your comments and feedback of our motel. We are saddened that you did not have a more enjoyable time. We will happily pass on the information you gave about the sounds you were hearing while trying to sleep and also check the tv to insure it is working properly.

This is not a fancy hotel but it is clean and has everything you need for a perfect beachfront stay plus some very nice extras like a microwave, refrigerator dishes and a really nice counter/kitchen area. The wifi is a little limited (one device) but it's good and you have a great selection of television channels. The beds are comfortable...

Centrally located making it easy to visit the north and south portions of the island easily. Located right on the Atlantic shore. Reasonably priced. Great staff. A special shout out to Myra, who made us feel right at home.

An inexpensive room on the beach? Heck yeah! This is a motel that seems to be family owned. The staff at the front desk were nice and accommodating. My uncle needed a room on the ground level, they made some changes and made it happen. We had a nice room with a partial view of the ocean and pool. The...

Our room was clean,comfortable, lots of space and well laid out. The staff were friendly, informative and welcoming, especially Hilda who was very helpful and engaging. Location was central for bike rentals and bike path and of course, wonderful sunrises right on our beach. In room coffee quality could be improved. Microwave available in office.
