Stayed 3 days with my husband in February for a get-a-away. The room we booked was dated but very nice and clean. Cooking utensils could be updated. The next morning our hot water was not hot. Someone came to our room to check the water immediately. The front desk stated they were upgrading us to a 2 bedroom cottage instead... More

The location is convenient & you can walk everywhere, which is why we started to stay here 5 years ago! Since then ... No upgrades or changes have been made. The same broken TUBE tv is in the room, the remote doesn't work, shower temperatures are steaming hot or ice cold! Its my opinion the owners of the property do... More

The location was perfect, right smack dab in the middle of everything, and a short walk to the beach. Loved being so close to everything. The room itself was clean, spacious, had a kitchen area which we would have loved if we were staying more than a weekend. Beds were comfy, shower was TINY, all the windows were drilled and... More

Nice and clean, everyone was nice! Def will stay here again. Great location to walk to everything. Price was good too! We stayed in a 2 full bed room, and had 3 people. We had to pay another $10 for the third person which I thought wasn't fair because you should be aloud 4 people with 2 beds but that's... More

Right next to Times square and overlooking a beautiful waterway. Had a few problems with the electrics in one of our rooms, the electrician was unable to rectify it during... More

We spend 3 night at the Shipwreck and everything was perfect: the host was very polite, respectful and let us change our room because of un educated neighbours. The room was very pretty and also the place, with its pier along the canal. Peaceful, facilities for cars and washing machine. Nice pool and close to the beach. Plus, I forgot... More

Great beach access motel, decorated with beach theme bright colors and within walking distance of everything . Although it's freezing this week it has little tiki huts out by a nice swimming area to Sun and the people are so friendly. The location is the reason to visit .A kickback friendly place to stay!!
