We stayed in #7 the "Love Shack". The room was laid out very well, so it didn't feel cramped even though the bed and Jacuzzi took up most of the space. It was very clean, and the managers were pleasant. The wifi worked, but you had to get the correct code from the managers - the password in the guest services book was out of date. The Jacuzzi hot tub filled fast considering how much water it takes. Watch the temperature of the hot tub - I was expecting the hot water to run out, but it didn't and it ended up being too hot. The tub is in a semi-enclosed space, so be careful about getting overwhelmed by the heat. There is a small vent in the ceiling, but it isn't adequate. If there was a small window that could open it would be better. The motel was off the main road, but close to everything (stores, restaurants, fast food, beach). They ask you not to run the jets in the tub after 11pm but people do anyway, and the walls aren't overly thick (TV on low volume was able to cover the noise from next door). Because they don't have room service while there, we would only consider 1 or maybe 2 nights max stay, but it would definitely be a pleasant one.
