Nice rooms, great location & affirdable
Small but nicely decorated room, with nice amnesties. Location can’t be beat, right off the beach with ocean views facing west for sunsets. I’d stay here again. Reasonable room rates

Wouldn't stay again
Walls were so thin I heard the couple next door having sex at 1am. Also the room smelled like urine. The location and staff were super friendly.

Nice and comfortable and at an excellent location.
The room was small but comfortable. Clean and looked like it had been recently painted. Shower was not too big but very nicely done. Bed and pillows were comfortable. The managers were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. A very short walking distance to the pier. Very happy with our stay.
