I stayed for one night last week (Wednesday). I think this was my 4th or 5th stay at this motel. It meets my needs perfectly as I am not looking for anything fancy. I just want a basic clean inexpensive room to take a shower and sleep. I live in the Annapolis area so when I go to the ocean... More

Couldn't check in till 4 right when the manager leaves so she doesn't have to deal with the complaints. She leaves kids to deal with customers. Though I could barely fit in the room I found mold, a dehumidifier, bugs, a used razor on our towels, a used a tip and oh yeah a nose ring. Checked right out. DO... More

Upon arrival to this motel check in was pleasant but that was the first and last pleasant experience. The first room they gave me had a bad breaker and the power went out ever 5 minutes. Then they moved us to another room which was even small, something I didn't think was possible. The second room on day two had... More

The Suntan Motel is older style Motel and we are not responsible for any cable issues that may occur nor can we be responsible for any breakers that may get blown due to some of our guests bringing in their own electronic devices such as microwaves, grills etc... We have done our best to check out any electrical breaker problems... More

I do apologize for any inconvenience this guest may have through because the guest family did not want to stay more than two nights but we do have minimums set for event and holiday weekends. The guests rooms were not cancelled by mistake, they had only one room booked and there was a three night minimum, we also tried calling... More

Reponse to this complaint is that not all facts are written. The guest fail to say that try to check in early before the check-in time which was 4 pm as it states on our website and in our confirmation letters. The guest was not here it was actually her daughter trying to check-in on her mother's credit card which... More

This motel is using false advertisement on their website leaving customers to believe the motel is safe, clean, and has a friendly staff. The pictures of the rooms are staged and not accurate to what condition they are really in. My family checked in and first had to deal with a rude front desk attendant. Then proceeded to our room...

Helpful staff and wonderful location with great rates. The room is small but you get what you pay for . Despite other reviews my room was clean and had no troubles. I plan on going again because it was very reasonable and tidey.
