Stopped by for a take out lunch in the variety store. My husband and I both got burgers and fries. Both were very good and not greasy. Appreciated how friendly and accommodating the staff was- would definitely stop by again! Looks like they had a good selection of items you would want at the beach.

I am writing this review on the Moby Dick store, not the hotel (I've never stayed here). However, given the treatment I have received in the store, I would absolutely stay with these wonderful people in an instant. Each time we came to the store we were greeted by the owner or a member of his family. The owner is... More

Awesome family owned place! Not on the beach, but just fine!!! Very clean & nice staff! Great deli/pizza place too & huge breakfast sandwiches!!!! Just an FYI- bring your own hair dryer & pillows from home. Pillows in the room could be former.

We visited OOB and stopped in the variety store to get some water and decided to get a grinder for dinner. Well, let me tell you it was one of the "BEST" we had in a long time. We did not stay at the hotel but grinders are Slammin and the gentlemen that made was very very nice!!

Stayed here summer 2012 for 4 nights. Hotel room looked clean at first glance. Upon getting settled in the room, we noticed that all around the window was mold. The air conditioner didn't work as good as it should have. Go in store to check in, owners are very nice and helpful. Hotel has wifi, depending on the room you... More

I used to always visit the store when in the area as they have "everything" with awesome food. Their subs are huge and put Subway to shame. I thought they were just expensive at first until i tried one. I finally decided to stay there and even though the rooms are about average/above average, they definitely made improvements from when... More

This was unreal.. This motel had a smell in the room that you could not get rid of Even after opening up windows. There was no maid service. The towels were like Worn out rags. I would never stay there again......
