The hotel is very clean, and the staff is so friendly you feel like family. Normally a group of us ladies go and have a wonderful time. Crisfield is small and not a lot to due, but it is my hideaway. Highly recommend it

Spent the night in room 6 of this quaint (practically the only commercial lodging available on Crisfield) and we're extremely pleased. Staff friendly and helpful, room clean and nicely appointed. Conveniently located (we walked to the Crab House tiki bar) and thoroughly enjoyed our getaway to this quiet quaint little water man's town. These days you don't get much for... More

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...
