      The price was right for a very basic room.

      The room was older and in need of a freshening up.

      It was close to the Dunes and the ocean. We were allowed to have our small Yorkie. They had a continental breakfast. The staff was polite.

      Didn't have enough washcloths and hand towels. No hair dryer or coffee maker in room. Didn't have room cleaned when checked in or by late afternoon the next day. $15.00 was a little to much for having a pet.

      The man at the front desk, the owner?, Was very friendly and accomodating. He gave us a late check-out and it was much appreciated. There was also a small fridge and microwave in the room, that was really helpful.

      The room had a odd odor to it. I don't know what it was, but it smelled very musty. Turning on the air conditioner helped some. It would have been better if the windows opened.

      Easy access to popular eateries. Close proximity to inter-city rail connection, national park (recreational). It is the perfect romantic get-away. I shall certainly recommend your facility as a primary spot for the entire family - year-round fun and excitement.

      Clean hotel right off the expressway facitlites are what you would expect from a budget hotel.

      Queen beds were more like full size beds and the rooms could use a fresh coat of paint.

    • Older travelers

      We were pleased with the location in reference to the University. We were not exposed to the noise others in the family experienced in facilities closer to the University.

      We were rather disappointed in the advertised free "Continnental Breakfast" which was rather sparse. However, the moderate charges for the room made it acceptable and understood.

      The price. The "breakfast" was miserable.

      The breakfast was miserable-tiny wrapped fake pastries.

    • Older travelers

      If a budget hotel is what you are looking for and you don't set your expectations high then this place will satisfy you.

      Cleaning staff could clean better

      Great price,comfy bed,location near expressway

      No alarm clock, confusion about price booked on line, but quickly resolved in our favor. Could have used an extra pillow.

    • Family with children

      Value is important to me. I had read reviews at website and they were true as mentioned. The motel does need a paint job but it serves its purpose and kind of a cool step back in time.

      The continental breakfast wasn't too great.
