We stayed here for two nights in late Sept., 2013. The motel sits directly across the Island Highway from the beach, so it's handy for beachcombing or strolling. A paved path runs parallel to the beach for easy walking. Also directly across from the Casa Grande is an excellent pub/restaurant with some fine brews on tap and an extensive menu. The views from the top two floors of the motel are spectacular, but the rooms themselves have very small windows, thus restricting the view.
Turning to the room, I can offer only a mediocre review. Spacious enough, and the two Q-sze beds were very comfortable, as was the''menu' of pillow densities, but we had to reject the first room because of musty/smoky odour and the second room, though better, did not smell fresh. The room had no iron or ironing board and the small refrigerator, tho plugged in, was not turned on. This last bit of minor carelessness seemed to be the tone of the place.
The location and excellent beds made this a satisfactory place, but I doubt. we would return.
