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

I THINK THE OWNER SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND EMBARRASSED TO RENT HOTEL ROOMS FOR MONEY THAT ARE IN SUCH DIRTY, DEPLORABLE CONDITION. I am not talking worn down or older motel I AM TALKING DIRTY conditions that you may expect at a public beach restroom or a homeless shelter! literally every room and object was dirty. The toilet had urine... More

Shall i begin with the wall of boogers? The Toilet streaked with urine and other bodily waste? Kitchenette Appliances encrusted with schmegma. And a grimy, crusty bathtub. Pure filth. See the attached Pictures, they don't lie! Im Thinking the last good cleaning was in 1982. It was so bad that we forfeited our paid night there (without any refund). We... More

I just want to start off by saying that I rarely write bad reviews. I'm not a picky person and I like smaller rooms.. emerald isle wasn't very clean and the service kind of sucks but what I want to write about is the man that lives/works there.. not the owner but the guy who, I assume he fixes things...
