The old owners were the absolute worse.The new owners have completely remodeled the rooms and lobby. They were doing construction outside while I was there which was very annoying. I had to keep moving my car every other day I was there. But I was offered a discount during the sometime which is a fair deal. All in all I... More

I will offer be offering a different opinion on the Emerald Isle Motel than most of the recent reviewers. I paid $70 for a double room for my girlfriend and I to stay in because we are on a tight budget, but we understood that the accommodations may reflect the price. After reading the recent reviews we made the trek... More

Beggars can't be choosers and this was the only place we could find close to the concert venue that was not booked for Labor Day Sunday evening. We arrived to find no manager available to talk with us but someone who was "not the manager" was sitting in front of one of the units with a group of people and... More

BUYER BEWARE - We booked a room through Hotwire for two nights. I had two days to cancel with a full refund. The next day, we realized that the weather wasn't going to cooperate so we cancelled the reservation. I received a confirmation email from Hotwire and my itinerary showed that it was cancelled. The night we were supposed to... More

My best girlfriend and I decided to go to Hampton beach, along with my 2 small children to celebrate the end of summer and her birthday. I booked this room after reading the reviews on hotel.com. I felt that the reviews stated that it was fair/ok. I knew this was going to be a basic motel, but we didn't mind... More

Checked into this one after a looong drive. The first room they gave me looked ok but stunk of cigarettes and sickly sweet air freshener. I asked for another room. It was filthy. the bathroom had not been cleaned and when I pulled back the bed cover the sheets were dirty. In the parking lot several people were standing around... More

July 4th 2015 DOES NOT EVEN DESERVE ONE STAR. This place has bed bugs for sure, very disgusting. I can't believe they are still open. When we got here our room was still being "cleaned" we had to wait for about 3 hours. Once we entered our room it was still dirty. The bathroom door doesn't close at all. The... More

I want to start with when I arrived. I look slightly ahead and look at the person cleaning room but noticed the comforter on the bed already so became curios about them. We checked in and walked right into the room and the first thing I did was move the sheets. The comforter had a pizza stain and the bed... More

Filthy, smelly rooms, unpleasant, dishonest owners and staff, empty pool, bums and scary people hanging around exterior, bugs, tiny dark rooms, you name every horrible feature of a motel that is possible. This hotel was condemned last year because of code violations and bed bugs. It was reopened after it was brought up to code by new owners. It was... More

I'm sorry, but this wasn't just a dump. It was scary. Rooms were dirty. Linen was stained with really strange spots. The door was difficult to lock. There are some "guests" who live there full time. The smell of cigarettes was overwhelming. Beer cans tossed around the Hampton Police were called there several times during our stay for rowdy behavior.... More
