My wife and two children booked this motel for two nights based on the pictures on their website. However, the pictures on the website must have been taken from some where else because this is NOT how this place looks. Once I entered the office to check in, I noticed that the office smelled like someone had been smoking and it did not look welcoming at all. Paid my $552 for the two nights and then we gathered our belongings from the car to put them in our designated room. The front carpet by the room door was dirty but I let that go. However, once we entered the room the small carpet inside the room had sand and balls of hair on it. The room smelled disgusting and it looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks. There were cheese noodles on top of the counter, the bed sheets had stains and had dirt marks on them. One of the beds looked like it had a blood stain and the bed were so uncomfortable and made so much noise that no one in our party was able to sleep. Now to the bathroom, the toilet was broken and had stains all over it. The bathtub was dirty all around it and the shower curtain had mold everywhere. We had to shower with our slippers on inside the tub. They only left three small shower towels which looked like they were purchased ten years ago (bad quality towels that felt like sand paper on your body). Luckily my wife brought beach towels which is what we had to use to dry our bodies. There were hair balls all over the place on the floor in the bathroom. There was a TV in the room but it only allowed us to watch one channel (News 12). The beds were so bad that we had to sleep with long pants pajamas, socks and a hoody sweater in order to not have to put our heads on the pillows. The place was unsafe. The door to the room did not lock so I had to put a chair during the night to prevent anyone from the outside breaking in while we slept. If this motel is following all safety and health protocols due to COVID-19, I hate to see what this place looked like before the pandemic.

We stayed here this past weekend in the room that sleeps 6. We enjoyed our stay the staff was very nice and answered any questions that we had. The staff went out of there way to clean up a broken bottle in the road. We liked having the full refrigerator compared to a mini fridge. Pros Friendly staff Close to the beach Clean rooms Great value Cons Parking they have 19 rooms and 14 spots but the staff will have you double park which I didn't mind The pillows could be more fluffy and the mattress could be more comfortable but I didn't have a problem Overall for what you pay this place is great its clean great staff highly recommend and I plan on staying here again

The rooms were clean, and the location was great. It was only a half of a block to the boardwalk while being in the center of Seaside. They provided parking and let me park a little longer after check-out to go to breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here 3x and would go back again and again. It's nothing special except the people who run this facility are wonderful. They will do anything to make your stay wonderful. One block from the beach and boardwalk. Rooms are clean and spacious. I look forward to going back each summer/fall.

Room was nice, seemed very clean and up to date but missing normal items such as a hairdryer, hand towels, and was cloth. 10AM check out time was strange as most hotels are at least 11 or 12. Location was not bad being 1.5 blocks of boardwalk.
