We stayed here for our second visit in June of 2011 and this time we got a dune view room so we could have easy access to the beach and have a view. The place is getting tired and in need of help. First of all the rugs need replacing. The room smelled musty like most motels and my suggestion for management is too replace the rugs with ceramic tile and then I think the musty odor will go away. The rug felt funky when you walked on it barefooted. The room itself was fairly clean but another suggestion is too move the bed away from the wall once in awhile and vaccuuum behind there and under the bed. It's very dusty behing the bed and nightstands and there was some paper behind there when we checked in. Just off the sidewalk in the dune view rooms there is a sandy area and it's loaded with cigarette butts that really aren't attractive to look at. I'm not a smoker and it seems a lot of smokers are nototius for throwing their butts anywhere, it's disgusting. There are recepticals for the butts but they are not fully being used. Management should post signs about disposing of the butts. When we sat outside all we would smell was the container for the cigarette butts and that wasn't pleasant. Wi-fi was great and free. The bed linens were clean. It also would be nice to see some flowers in planters in the back yard or boxes on the railings. I want this place to be great, it's a cool old motel and if the Days Inn compant put alittle money into the place, it could be a great place.
