Right in the heart of Plymouth water front. Convenient to everything. Short walk up the hill to the heart of downtown Plymouth. An older motel, but our room was clean, and comfortable. Also, a continental breakfast in the morning. The staff was very helpful with every request, or question. Upon check in we requested to change our room from 2... More

We stayed here over the July 4th holiday weekend. This is one of the busiest weekends in Plymouth. We knew it would be loud, and crowded so we chose a back room and not one with a view of the waterfront. It was quiet as long as we had the AC/fan on. Check in was easy, we even got there... More

I just spent the weekend here. & paid top dollar for a pet friendly room. I have a small dog. As soon as we opened the door we smelled cat urine. It was so strong it was overwhelming. I had to leave the door open while we were in the room. I did report this to the front desk. And... More

We want to thank you for your recent stay with us. We are sorry that you had problems with your stay. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, we cannot get the room as it should be. For that we apologize. We are dog friendly, but sometimes a guest will sneak a cat into the room and leave an odor.... More

My husband, myself and three children stayed at this hotel 26 May- 2nd June 2015... A time span that coincides with a couple of bad reviews on this site. We found the book-in process to be faster than expected for international visitors, the rooms were cleaned daily complete with clean towels, there was a chlorine type smell, which we put... More

IF you want dank and dingy and dreary and entomologically suspicious and decor harking back to 1956 and last cleaned in the same year, this is the place for you. If you want a view of the water in Plymouth, you got it. If you want clean and modern and a top notch or even moderately decent motel, this ain't... More

Very friendly desk staff. Room could use some paint improvement in the bath, but large, comfortable and with all usual amenities. Too cool to use the pool , and we left too early to enjoy the free breakfast but they let us leave our car there while we went fishing, so appreciated!

The location is amazing we walked to the beach (John Alden Beach Park) out to dinner and drinks and shopping. We arrived Friday and did not move our car until Sunday afternoon. We were able to take our dog and the area is very pet friendly. The room was pet friendly so it was a bit dated but very clean.... More

As a last minute booking, I was happy to get a room in such a prime location in Plymouth. It has beautiful views of the bay and is really in walking distance to just about everything. Parking in the hotel lot is minimal but there is additional parking across the street. The hotel will provide you with a pass. A... More

The previous reviewers have told you what you need to know about the rooms and lack of housekeeping. The location is great. Mere steps away from dining, The Mayflower, whale watching ships, antiquing, oyster bars and historical sites galore may make it worth it to you to stay here. And, it's pretty affordable. We won't be back to this business... More
