I WAS seriously debating about posting a review, because if more folks knew how wonderful the Mark I was, then it would become more difficult to find a room there the next time we planned a... More

I recently returned from a 2 night stay at the Mark I with my husband and 2 children. The place is super clean and updated. Close to beach. Spotless swimming pool. Friendly owners. No complaints. Can't wait to go back!

For over 30 years I have been going to the Mark I Motel.... The family that has owned and operated this home away from home has become part of my family. I have watched the renovations on the Motel transform the place into a luxurious -modern- clean- efficient vacation motel to stay... I spend 2 weeks every year and enjoy... More

This is the second year I stayed at the Mark I and had a great stay. The owners go out of their way to accommodate you and the place is spotless. Very close to the beach and friendly atmosphere. I highly recommend it.

Another GREAT stay at Mark I Motel. I would highly recommend. Close to Beach, heated pool, and very very clean. We have stayed there the last 4 years on Memorial Day weekend. We already scheduled next year and we hope to go back in August 2015.
