The motel is in a great location and easy to get in and out of on one way street. It's a basic motel, no frills. Had small microwave and fridge. Also a sink which was on top of an old fridge that was pretty dirty and should be removed but it wasn't a bother. Rooms are typical small motel rooms and fairly clean. Staff was helpful with issues in getting tv remote to work. We were on first floor and it was loud above us and next to us but we don't expect total quiet when in motels. You could hear everyone walking above us and talking next to us. Price was great though for off season, wasn't expecting a fancy place for the price. No blowdryers though so bring your own. Also bring any plates or cups you may use for the microwave etc. Parking lot is tight and small, big vehicles will have tougher time fitting in there. Parking is free on their lot though.
I had 2 night stay with this place and let me start by saying this place is terrible! Small room, Small bathroom, dirty stained sheets. Ants all over the place. Very rude staff! Old man had a attitude fo everything. They called the cops on people get them kicked out no refund or anything. Would rent that same room a hour later without refurbishing it. They charge 15 dollars for extra people. At that when have you heard of a motel where you are not allowed to have guests! Ive been to many motels in seaside and this is the first time where i was not allowed to have any guests and there reasons were ridiculous "oh because its a liabilty they need to have a room with us" bs they are just greedy cheap rude people and scam artists. I tried to leave after 12 hours and refused go credit me back any money. WORST motel expierence i ever had! These people shouldnt be like that and should be considerate of people spending their money there and should provide good customer care 117 a night for nothing place should be 49.99 a night and thats just being nice considering how run down the place and with the worst most rude and disrespectful cheap staff they have! How do you catch an attitude for asking for toilet paper. Small parking lot this was bad for a 2 star hotel more like a 0.5 star hotel! Only good thing about it was being half a block away from the boardwalk and club. I ended up losing my money and went to the Glendale across the street. Very sad place please improve the facility and improve on your bad staff you shouldn't be making a persons stay horrible at a bad motel where they decide to spend their money to vacation or have a good weekend with your mean rude staff. Its despicable and horrible of you people to make a persons stay there a horrible and uncomfortable experience. Fix your bathrooms toilets, sink, and shower my bathroom ended up being flood all this within 12 hours of staying there. They need to shut you people down!!
