The exterior of the property was run down and spooky looking when we pulled in. I think a lot of people that were there live in the hotel full time. The room itself was immaculate and looked like it had been remolded somewhat recently. If they are remodeling the property they seem to be heading in the right direction. It... More

One of the only places to not have a 2 night minimum in the Summer. About $100 opposed to the $329 the nicer places wanted. The sheets were clean, but stained. The place is in dire need of a paint job. Thank god I only needed to sleep for a few hours. I would have a hard time recommending this,... More

We booked through a travel site and chose rashly based on price rather than reviews- huge mistake. We checked in and right back out. The outside of the building is run down and shabby, the inside of the office reeked and make my stomach turn, and when we got to the room and checked it out we found a brown... More

I stayed here on business because it was 4 minutes from the company I was visiting. I left with 40+ blistering bed bug bites all over my body! On the morning of my checkout, there were 2 Mexican men sitting outside my room waiting for me to leave so they could enter. The rooms haven't been renovated since the 80s... More

We stayed here due to a last minute family event and we live 2 hours away. The motel was dirty, holes in the walls, stains on everything and anything, lightbulbs missing and/or lamps not working. The bathroom mirror and wall was covered in stains. The walls were so thin we could hear the people in the room in front of... More

Went yo Cape Cod to spend time at the beach and visiting local attractions. Did not want to spend a lot of money on a room we were only going to sleep in. Eddie and his wife run a great, basic, clean motel. The swimming pool was clean and well maintained. The room was clean, with microwave, refrigerator and coffee... More

I requested a late check in on my first night and due to nobody being there, I had to sleep in my car. The next two nights I slept in my sweatshirt because of the spiders and dirty sheets with cigarette burns in them. The shower was either hot or cold, no in-between. Also, it would not drain. I didn't... More

I booked this hotel on short notice (paid in advance) as I would be arriving to the area late and leaving on the ferry early the next morning. I called ahead and told the receptionist I would be in around 1:00 AM: she was friendly and advised me to call the number on the door for check-in. We arrived at... More

My husband and I stayed at the Carleton when we got in too late for the last ferry. It was clean and at a much better price than the neighboring hotels. The hotel staff was also really helpful in checking us in as we got in after 11pm. It's not a place I want to stay for a week, but... More

This motel is very primitive, but also ill-maintained. The front door does not open/or close properly. The amenities are old and loud (air conditioner or bathroom fan). There is a TV set in the room, but power on/off button is just a hole. There are no basic conveniences (hair dryer or clothe hangers). The hotel is located on the main... More
