“What an amazing view”
Reviewed 23 June 2005

We stayed 2 nights in a queen w/kitchen room (the least expensive room they have) in one of the 4 original buildings. There are newer buildings (1 on each side) on each end of the 4 original buildings. We were upstairs and our balcony was on the east side of the building looking away from the ocean and toward the parking lot and the Best Western Inn at Face Rock across the road. Needless to say, we did not sit on that balcony. From our kitchen table, however, we had the most beautiful view of the ocean, beach, and what I presume was Face Rock.

The above average rating here is for the spectacular, unobstructed view. There is nothing here between your room and the beach.

The room itself was not as great as the view. In our room upstairs (we never saw the downstairs units for comparison), the ceiling is pretty low (about 7'), giving us a slightly cramped feeling when we first entered. Bathroom has a shower stall only, and the only power outlet we could find was near the floor on the wall opposite the sink. There was also a sitting area with a couch and a chair. The room had a kind of dated (1950s era, maybe?), rustic ambience, you might say, with dark wood doors and wood detailing. But, it was clean, and all the cooking equipment provided for the kitchen seemed well washed. But it really is the view that counts here!

After sitting and looking at our view for awhile, we forgot that the room was not quite what we would have hoped. We assume the newer rooms are somewhat nicer.

The only thing I would have liked was a balcony or patio where I could sit outside and see the ocean. The more expensive rooms did have their own patios and the newer rooms had a balcony upstairs (on the ocean side) as well as a patio for the downstairs.

If you think you won't be happy in one of the older rooms, give the rooms in the newer building a try. Then report back here. I wish I'd ask to see one of them.

We would stay here again.

Truly fantastic oceanview from inside your room, beach access right outside your back door. Super clean, comfortable; spacious enough for family getaways w/1 queen and kitchenette downstairs, 2 full size beds upstairs. Not a luxury motel, just an unexpected great value for weekend retreats, family getaways. Very friendly staff that makes this a place to feel at home, but with the ocean sounds and views that make it a place to remember.

I recently stayed at the neatest place imagineable for the money!!! It is directly across the street from the Best Western Inn at Face Rock but half the price (even though it is a much better location!). We (2 sisters, cousin with brother and sister-n-law) all stayed in one of the "cottages" and it was fabulous. 1 bed with kitchenette and bath downstairs and 2 beds upstairs (full size). The place is not for those expecting luxury!!!! It is very plain, simple, clean, economical and has everything you need furnished! Super nice people and the best location we saw!!! Had a wonderful visit with family and hope to go back soon!!!!
