Off Season, so quiet!
EXACTLY what is pictured. No frills!, not updated, etc. CLEAN, comfortable, good size room; maintained for an old building. Shower is small, but worked well. Large TV, hdmi cable friendly! Fridge/micro clean and in great condition. The location is amazing! The beach is a short walk up the block. The courtyard is pleasant and well kept. The surrounding neighborhood seems lovely. Convenient to main roads. Variety of restaurants/food/convenience shopping nearby.

Cute little motel nestled in a beautiful strip of Norfolk beach. Quiet and quaint, the beaches weren't crowded and the motel is just across the street from a beach access. I will definitely be back!
