Fodor's Review

This folksy, laid-back motel looks better on the outside than inside, but it's just steps from the surf and rooms are spacious and clean, and most have balconies and ocean views. Well-kept grounds support blooming hibiscus, bird of paradise, and sago palms contrast. The adjacent beach is a popular local gathering place.
