I was in a bind and had to stay at this motel. The only good thing was location in regards to the area I was visiting.
Where do I start. Terrible matress, small paper thin towels, small bar of soap(no shampoo), moldy shower stall, no extra security devises on door, rusty sink, furniture that looks like my granfather threw out 30 years ago. Horrible. Left the room very early in the morning just to get out.
We decided to take a last minute trip to the dunes, and Golden Sands had rooms available last minute for under $100. It was pretty clean, had a nice retro feel, and the staff was very friendly (and accommodating of us showing up after their 10PM check in time).
It could use some updating, the old tube TV sporadically got 2-3 stations, the towels were threadbare, but for the price it was decent.
