Curmudgen owner
We pulled into the motel lot with unexpected change of plans. The owner was unsympathetic and was charging us for 2 nights out of 5 after much loud discussion of policy. As we were there already and losing the money we decided to regroup and stay and make plans to return due to family emergencies. The owner was not friendly or empathetic citing he had business to run and turned people away thinking we'd be there for 5 nights. WELL... next morning he knocked on the door early and said he had "good news". He had someone that wanted to book multiple nights and we didnt have to stay the 2nd night afterall. Needless to say we had already rearranged our plans to be able to stay the 2 nights so told him so....I dont think he was happy with that either. He had already charged us for the 2 nights mind you. I guess Kharma does exist. The motel was clean. It is older. It is nowhere near the beach pictures it shows in the ads. You also need the car to go into town.
