    Great Clean location

    The staff was very nice and attentive. My dog was treated very nicely. The room was clean and had tiles in the floor which allows quick clean up when my best friend may have an accident. They gave me as many extra towels as I asked for more. My room had no bugs or other vermin. The WiFi has improved since my last visit and I would come back again for both vacation or business travel.

    Stayed over in Seaside, wanted beach

    More than a year ago

    Stove doesn't work properly and the knobs for each burner malfunction to the point that they turn on the wrong burner or multiple ones at once. Totally unreliable. The oven also doesn't work. The stove and oven are also hooked into the wall with an extension cord which is extremely unsafe.

    The garbage cans are positioned right in front of the doors so flies constantly get in your rooms no matter how quickly you close them. It's especially disgusting that they force the disabled Vietnam veteran living there to stay closest to the trash. There are also roaches in the rooms.

    Literally nothing is as they advertise. Their wifi signal can barely be detected by devices and literally cannot be used if connected to. Their pool is locked during hours it's meant to be open for swimming. There's virtually no lighting in the rooms. The bathroom ventilation is filthy.

    Oh and here's the highlight. Almost everyone staying at this motel is on Section 8 housing. And that's not a knock on the poor. The problem is that if you are not subsidized by the state then you will be charged at least a hundred bucks more whether you pay a daily or weekly rate. If you pay by cash they will not give you a receipt and that's likely because they pocket the cash without reporting sales tax. So if you're a working class joe they will upcharge you on everything and they will fix nothing you bring up in return.

    If you have more than one dog they will harass you in the middle of the night to get more money from you. They literally have the old lady from the desk drive around in a big red truck after hours to bang on doors demanding money. They will lie and accuse you of hiding pets and demand you pay fees for them despite knowing about the pets for three weeks and already getting a pet deposit up front.

    These people are scam artists. If you pay by card they will double charge you. Especially bad if you're low on bank funds. They'll put you in the negative and then tell you they need to be paid. When you tell them they charged you already and several times on top of it they'll accuse you of giving "sob stories" and demand to be paid. The only way to avoid being double charged by card is by paying cash. And again, if you're not being housed by the state they'll jack up your rates and pocket the cash. They act stupid when you confront them about their broken promises, broken amenities and broken rates.

    The old man and woman that run the motel and front desk are terrible people. I don't use that language about the elderly lightly. They take advantage of those down on their luck, they abuse those they know they can get away with robbing, and even after their high summer rates barely drop down for winter they'll just jack them up with made up fees.

    Fire code violations, building code violations, health code violations, tax code violations, and of course violations of any sense of ethics codes. Don't waste a penny on them. They will, and pardon my language here, *RAPE* your wallet.
