“Gone down hill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2011

We have stayed at this place many times and have always enjoyed our stay. However, the owners don't seem to care about the place nor it's guests anymore. We stayed here last summer with 6 adults in a 2 bedrm condo for a week. The bathroom was not cleaned once!! yuck. On this trip I asked if the rooms and bathroom would be cleaned and the woman at the desk said 'oh yeah'. Were they cleaned? nope. We had to ask them to make the bed! When we were checking out, I was waiting outside and another guest had gone into the laundry area to ask the housekeepers if THEIR room was going to be cleaned!!

Oven/stove did not work. Only were given about 1/4 of the Kitchen utensils the other rooms received. Booked 2 twin beds, given one and told the fold-out cot counted as a bed. If the cot had actually worked and didnt pull out and rest at a 45 degree angle, it would have been acceptable. However, it was so small that Gary Coleman's knees would have been hanging off the end. Manager made a point of lecturing us for drinking alcohol before 5pm. 4 bbq's, air compressor for floaties, and being located right on the beach was a nice touch, but unfortunately this place is almost as terrible as the Pizza Factory down the road.

Room Tip: As far away from the front office as possible,

In over 2 decades which has seen us come in small groups to as many as 30 people.
The Richter Pass Motor Inn has always provided the perfect venue for some of my fondest memories

One of the few original Motels still left on the best part of the beach. The soft sandy beach flows into the shallow warm water making it idea for children to play in and perfect for dipping into on those 100 degree summer days. This mature Motel offers the best in price and customer service and seems to draw the right type of people that make for a friendly and enjoyable experience.

I have raised my children on this beach and along the way made many a new friends .Experienced every thing from boating ,Water-skiing , Jet skiing to just sun tanning on the beach with a few cold beverages.

Just a small warning this is one of those places that once you visit , It impossible to stop coming back

With extended family and friends we have stayed at Richter Pass for more than a decade, same week in July every year. Children became young adults and continued to come along with their friends, some of us became grandparents with small toes tip-toeing on the beach again. Until summer of 2010, with new management team, who saw us as annoying bunch of no-bodies, constantly re assuring us of their power to shut down, put on the sprinklers and throw us out of the property, if we wouldn't stand and sit to their likings. 10 years ago, we would sing and dance on the lawn and on the beach at nights, we would even play survivor game for a whole week on the beach,to much joy to other residents. Last year we would sit and chat about old times and sipping our wine. But yet that was to bothersome for the new management team, so when we (20 people) were settling our account, we were told that we were not welcome any more. To seal that we received a letter from the actual owners, who told us we were not even allowed to step our feet into their property.
What a way to treat loyal customers - shame on them.
Location is wonderful, everything else, including rooms, service and cleanliness need serious renovation.

Don't be deceived by the older appearance of this motel. The rooms are clean, the staff freindly and helpful, and the rooms reasonably priced: especially considering that they are right on the beach. We have been going here for our summer holiday for ten years and will continue to do so.
