“A motel with character”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

Ray & Carol have passed but their grandson Gary now runs the place. Nothing fancy but the rooms are clean and comfortable. We had the First Mate's Cabin with two double beds and a big bathroom. All rooms have AC and TVs. Take a book! Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine are available for guests. The Salton Sea is a fascinating albeit forlorn place. Lots of photographic opportunities. A few miles to the north, Salton Sea Beach was prettier and had actual neighborhoods of houses/trailers. Bombay Beach on the north shore was a truly depressing place.
