10/10 Exceptional

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient
Conveniently positioned motel, close to the Bayfair mall and to the beach, yet shelterd from street noise and bustle. Clean and comfortable rooms, though with the bed-room upstairs and bath/toilet at ground level, it is a little inconvenient to get between the two at night. The kitchenette has everything you need for a short stay. Room is fitted with a heater (which sufficed for the present stay) and fans, but no air-con (which may be an issue for some at peak summer season). Hosts were friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed my stay here, and will look forward to availing of their hospitality on future trips.
