I have stayed at this motel. Its rates are VERY cheap (we're talking $50 for a Friday night), but along with the cheap rates you get cigarette-burned drapes and bed sheets as well as dingy, cream tiled bathrooms. Not ideal for a tropical getaway, but it does the job if you are going through town and need a pillow to lay your head on. All of the quirks get to you? Go have yourself a VERY strong Blue Hawaiian at the TIKI COCKTAIL LOUNGE right in front. Guarantee you won't mind the dinginess of the place after a few of those! Also, one should know that this place has AMAZING carved TIKI statues every 50 feet or so of the motel. They are amazing. Check it out, it's a great little place with loads of potential.
