I had no choice, I wanted to take my family to the beach for just a couple of days. I booked it and then read the reviews. I was really worried and I prepared myself. Well I didn't have anything to worry about. Our rooms were clean. Sheets, towels bedspreads all clean. I looked because I brought extra believe it... More

First of all I will apologize to Norm because I can see that this place has sucked his soul out of him, I know because I experienced the same feeling while there. My friend and I attempted to stay here on our mini vacation and were scared for our lives the entire night. We arrived around 11pm and the staff... More

We left there and wouldn't give our money back for the 3 nights we were suppose to stay there. The place smelled. The bed frame was broke so when you sat on the... More

When walking into Normans motel, you instantly think of a horror movie due to the name. The room was musty, looked like it was from the 70's, and the shower still had soap in it from the previous people. The place looked dangerous with the multiple things plugged into one outlet. The bathroom was small and had a attic looking... More

This place was gross and disgusting. Do not stay here unless u are desperate and then think hard about it. When we got there the place looked ok from outside. We checked in and went to room. The place was awful. Sink would not drain, shade over window was broken. There was dust cobwebs on the wall and when I... More

I went in with very low expectations based on the reviews. I figured I can't be disappointed this way. I arrived at 10 PM and the reception desk was locked up tight--literally with the lights off. Thought this might be an indication of things to come. Thankfully there was a door bell and after ringing it several times, Norman and... More

Don't expect much, just lower prices triple in some cases. A Jacuzzi in a separate building for when it rains, a gazebo with table on large sundeck. The back yard with grill and picknic tables , horseshoe game and swing, arcade games. We close at 10 pm no matter if we have 1 or 10 rooms empty. This is my... More

Horrible, horrible, horrible!!! Dirty Q-tips in drawers, dirty sheets (when we asked to have them changed we were told that "they looked dirty but were probably clean"), no cold water, disguisting smell, the ceiling was caving in and spider webs in the bathroom. A NIGHTMARE!!!!

The motel from the outside looks ok...But looks can be deceiving. Our room was dingy at best. The motel room looked like something out of the 70's, our lamp had a broken light bulb in it no lights outside either. The shower curtain had mildew on it and the toilet seat was painted. I know i will never stay here... More
