This motel is a bargain for its location a short walk from the beach, and features an absolutely stunning landscaping, wonderful outdoor heated pool and hot tub. The rooms are "vintage" but remarkably clean and comfortable. I slept on the sofa bed in the "Trout" room and was amazed at how comfortable it was - they had actually put a thick foam pad on the bed to ensure its sleep quality! The kitchen was fully functional and stocked full of all utensils and appliances one would need. This is by far the best motel to stay on AMI - for comfort, peace and quiet, relaxation, location, cleanliness and attentiveness by the staff. I hope to return many times.
