    This place sucks
    The room was filled with flys. When I advised the person in the office he was disgruntled and stated that if people kept their doors shut it wouldn’t be a problem. Very rude and unprofessional. People would smoke outside of their room and the smoke would come into your room. This place is a a pure hell hole. For the price you pay it’s definitely not worth it. Better business bureau should shut this place down.

    Very good 8.0
    We took a mini family vacation and overall loved beach bum! Only thing that disappointed me was the bathroom shower curtains smelled like mildew. We had two rooms and in both rooms they smelled. Other than that it was good! You definitely pay for the location rather than the motel itself. Location was fine as we didn’t mind walking the two blocks down to the beach. Summer was super helpful and friendly as she accommodated us to check in earlier than what the check in time was for.
