we stayed 3 nights with room facing the bay,with a private deck. Was clean but a bit outdated. Very affordable for what you get. Restaurant had great food and free bands on the weekend. Staff very friendly. Plan to come back again.A plus being on the bay away from all craziness.

When we booked the motel for our stay, I did notice the mixed reviews. I was not really worried because I tend to give people the benefit of the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Buccaneer and will stay again on our next trip. The hotel rooms are a little outdated but that did not bother us at all. The repairs done to the rooms were not done professionally or if they were I hope they didn't pay much, but still is not a deterrent. The room was clean... More

My Boyfriend and I made reservations three weeks in advance and we were told we had a pool view room,but when we arrived we had a view of the back of the building and the parking lot. When we brought it to the front desk's attention, they were rude and refused to give us another room. Because they open the... More

My husband and I booked this hotel for a 3 night stay as his band was playing at the Marina and Carillon on the Green on the 4th of July and this was the most convenient location. We booked before reading the reviews and were worried we made a mistake. Let me say, it was NOT a mistake at all.... More

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at the Buccaneer. Our room had a French door and a patio area facing the bay. Every morning, early, at high tide we would snorkel out our back door. My husband and I got to see Puffer fish, Skates, Blue Crabs, and a tiny black and white fish that hovered in front... More
