First of all, this motel is now called Captain Tyler Motel. Apparently this is a name change without an ownership change. This is an older motel that is reasonably well kept. Bathrooms are very small and there is only a rack on the wall for hanging clothes. No coffee pot, but does have a hair dryer, mini frig, microwave and... More

The previous reviews on on the money, just an old motel that is within walking distance of the fairgrounds and local eateries. Overpriced, not sparkling clean but just a place to rest your head. Average.

This is my second year attending the Crab Cruise and staying at the Paddlewheel Hotel. Donna is lovely and treated us like family. Yes, it is an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and the hospitality is outstanding! I will definitely be back next year!

There aren't many options in Crisfield, this one seems to be the best of the very few. It's an old motel, but the rooms are clean and fairly roomy. We were in a second building, next to the main hotel. The rooms in our building were above a closed restaurant. No elevator to get up to the rooms, the stairs... More

First of all, Crisfield is small. I mean very small. So there aren't very many options on where to stay. The Paddlewheel Motel, which is now called Captain Tyler's, is an old school motel. It reminded me of the places we stayed on family vacations in the 70s - and it hasn't changed a whole lot since then. The motel... More

If you plan to visit Crisfield you are probably going for the rustic Chesapeake experience. Paddlewheel Motel will absolutely enhance that experience. It is your two story motel right out of the 50's. Renovated and updated yes, but all the feel and sensations of rustic. I say it is the best place to stay because your choices are extremely limited.... More

Our room was Super Clean, we met a great staff, had a flat screen t.v., small refrigerator, microwave, big walk in shower, two lounge chairs in rooms with King Sized beds, and priced right.... What else can I say...

My son and I stayed for two days. The room and the bathroom was spotless clean. The service was friendly like we were old friends. I plan on going back to Crisfield in the spring and this summer and this is the place I'll choose to stay.

I have had 4 Vets come to the Crisfield area this winter to hunt with me. There are not alot of places to stay in town. Told the Vets to use the Paddlewheel due to the reviews. The outside is out brick , but the rooms are all updated and very nice. The Vets liked their stay and told me... More
