Too close to railroad tracks and street. Trains come by several times per night and blow their air horns many times behind the motel rooms.

The room was old with cracked paint and tiles. The carpet was dirty and shabby. The room and bathroom were dirty. Do not stay here unless a kid on Spring Break.

rooms were very clean and the staff very nice. The only down side to this hotel is the train that runs through the night right behind it honking its horn repeatedly. Other than that beds were comfy and the coffee good.

We were not very happy when we woke up we had bed bug bites on our body. It was our 3 grandchildren me and my husband. This place needs to be cleaned not just look clean. We will never stay there again.

Todd at the front desk was amazingly friendly. Loved that I had a store close by and was close to the beach.
