Good location, Rooms are well maintained. Had rather strange decoration relating to the owners life. Too personal for a guest staying there. Community room is a good idea. Needed better access to power outlets for device charging. Owners should not press their lifestyle or beliefs...More

We went as couple for the first time together alone. This motel was perfect for us. We went to the dunes and the scenic drive on one day - arriving from Chicago. The room was clean and quiet. Could walk to dunes.

It's a great place to stay. Rooms are adequately sized and cleaned. I loved the community room; it has a stove, refrigerator, and dishes so you can bring your own food and cook meals. The Dune Climb is a short walk from the hotel.
