Keep in mind this MOTEL (and it is not a RESORT) is the only game in town for direct ocean front on the beach. So we had to pay a whopping $310 for a Skipper's Deck 3rd floor ocean front room weekday (Wed-Fri) in July. The room was a standard, not up to date, no pool, no spa, cookie cutter type, two queen beds, very small shower and the coffee maker was in the bathroom. I also looked at another room and the refrigerator was right next to the toilet in the bathroom. Is this sanitary? I could not believe this is an ocean front motel and they do not have beach chairs, umbrellas or even beach towels for the guests to use like all the other motels in the area at no charge. You were expected to bring your own! It was also odd in July all the other rooms next to us on the ocean front were empty for the nights we were there. They do not even offer breakfast for this price. We were told by other guests that had stayed there before they gave out passes for free breakfast each day, but apparently they do not do that any more. My husband and I thought it was way too much money with no value at all. Be afraid... be very afraid. Do yourself a favor and go look at this motel if you can in person before you book a reservation. If you expect a hoity toity place this is not for you.
