The Manager Ronnie was friendly and made my wife and I feel right at home. The room and motel was clean and well kept. The motel is better then any motel we have stayed at in you didn't feel like it was a motel, almost like you were at home. All the good restaurants are within walking distance. Short walk... More

This quaint little hotel is an AWESOME place to stay. We had such a great time throughout our week long vacation that we hated to leave. The rooms were well maintained and very clean and spacious. This is a pet friendly hotel which made it even better since we were able to bring our four legged child!!!!! The manager, Ronnie,... More

Please do not book this place. It is horrible. The moment you walk into the place you feel like you need a shower!!! The internet photos are are extremely deceiving!!!! Booked this place from just looking at the site and thought it was cute and quirky. Instead it was filthy and scary. It was pet friendly and that was what... More

This person did not have a reservation at our place nor did she stay there. She showed up at 12:00 noon. Our check-in time is 3:00. When she found out she did not have a reservation she asked to rent a room and to see one. We explained that the room was not clean yet as our guests had just... More

I was hesitant to stay here, as it was a very extended stay, but the staff improvements and the major overhaul that the hotel recently had made me never want to leave. This place is calm, close enough to walk along the beach and the pier and the food in the area is FANTASTIC. I will most definitely stay here... More

We had a great time staying here! Apparently it is under new management, and the rooms have been renovated recently. We stayed in one of the ocean front suites and the views were awesome. The location is great for nightlife, and it was all around a great trip. Would definitely recommend it!

We stayed back in January and it was awesome. We stayed in one of the ocean front suites, the views were great, the room had just been re done, and it looked awesome. Overall it was an awesome place, the people were friendly, and it had a "mom and pop" feel to it. Will definitely be back.

This weekend was my third stay at the Mermaid Manor, but this was my best by far! The new renovations are amazing, and the new management was outstanding. The staff always show genuine hospitality and I love that my pets are always welcome!

This place was just horrible I had to clean the place as soon as we got there. There were bedbugs and really dirty and old Hawaiian style sheets. The office smelled like cigarette smoke, it was just a mad house in front of the beach. Great location but you won't feel safe staying here.

I feel it is my duty to inform people that the room I stayed in at Mermaid Manor had bedbugs. I was there for a birthday weekend with my boyfriend. The owners were friendly and even lent us their bike locks. But at 2:30 am we awoke, the bed (and our bodies) literally crawling with bedbugs. We had to ride... More

If you want to stay at a beach front spot that appeals equally to your toddler and dog, this is the place for you. It has a ton of character, offers free parking and is in walking distance of shopping and restaurants. It faces the beach and also has a pool. If you expect the marriott, room service or floors...
