We had a good stay here. The room was clean. The beds were comfy. The location, excellent! Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Spacious grounds. The area is quiet. Drakes Island Beach is a 5 minute drive at the most.

My husband and I reluctantly left our niece and her two small children there last week for the night, as we were heading north and they were heading south. Outside smelled like some type of chemical! The room was awful , and the desk clerk ( the owner, I assume) wouldn't give me the full price for what she had... More

After we paid we were told the pool was closed, they are vacuuming it. Umm... It was green. Entered the room and the closed up mildew smell was overwhelming. Furniture old and worn out, bed was saggy and beyond uncomfortable. There were two smoke detectors on a shelf without batteries and no operating smoke detector at all. Bathroom fixtures were... More

We booked a cabin through booking.com and when we walked through the door we knew were ripped off. The "cottage" we rented (unit 14) was nothing like the photos online. The room was extremely small, maybe 10x10 and very dirty. There was a full size bed with a small table, small fridge and microwave. A door leading out to the... More

For a leaf-peeping weekend, this was apparently a good bargain. It turns out that it was not. Room not ready at check-in time; room was dirty and needed vacuuming, tub and shower curtain were moldy, room was never made up while I was there, at one point I even hung the "clean room" tag on the door and all that...

Clean tidy no frills motel, in need of some upgrading. Separate cabins means less adjacent noise, but the close location to the railway line did bring the associated noise. Good value. great wildlife.
