Positive Reviews

Centrally located near the beach

Beachgoers were in their element at this motel as it was just five minutes' walk from the beach. Moreover, it offered easy access to attractions like the marina and Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark. Reviewers also appreciated being so close to a wide choice of dining options in the surrounding blocks.

Customer service praised

Many reviewers spoke highly about the customer service, often calling personnel friendly, attentive and helpful. Check-in was usually hassle-free too.

Modernized rooms at reasonable rates

The rooms were often described as basic but more than adequately clean and comfortable for a shorter stay. Many guests said they would stay again, although some found the rooms and bathrooms to be small. Reviewers often said this motel was fair value for money due to its reasonable prices.

Some maintenance and cleanliness complaints

Critics took issue with some maintenance and cleanliness issues they encountered. It was claimed that certain bathrooms weren't always cleaned to a good standard or that some rooms had stained linens and mold. There were also infrequent reports of encounters with cockroaches. Marked walls and interruptions to the hot water supply were among the maintenance issues reviewers remarked on. Stale smoke smells were also reported in some parts of the building.

Parking lot was tight

Although motorists appreciated the free on-site parking, some claimed there was occasionally a shortage of spaces during peak periods of demand.

Unpopular charges for Wi-Fi access

Reviewers were disappointed to face additional fees for Wi-Fi access, often expressing surprise that it wasn't provided free of charge. Furthermore, some users said the network was slow and suffered from a patchy signal.
