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...

The stay I had with my family at Mermaid Manor was a fun 2 night stay. It was nice to be right on the beach but it was too crowded in my opinion. Of course, we had 8 people (2 busy babies). We could've used more bathrooms. The management was extremely kind and willing to fulfill most of our needs... More

The good is the awesome oceanfront location, the large room size, and the fact that Mermaid Manor is pet friendly. The area is quiet and private as there is an empty lot on one side and a private residence on the other. Patty, the manager, is very helpful and friendly. The not so good is that there is a definite... More

We stayed at this hotel 8/15/14-8/17/14 and our rooms 206/208 were infested with BED BUGS!! Unfortunately we did not notice until Sunday morning 8/17 when my friend woke up itching and had a bed bug on his back. We then pulled back the comforter and found blood streaks on the sheets along with 3 more adult bed bugs. We smashed... More

For the first time in a long time, I actually made the reservation before I read the reviews. Perhaps that's why, for the most part, I was pleasantly surprised. This is most definitely an old school beach hotel. The solid panelling is dark, but beautiful. The rooms are small, but the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The... More

After reading some of the other reviews before arriving at Mermaid Manor, I was a little apprehensive about what lay in store for us during our weekend stay. I was relieved, however, when I arrived and Patty, the manager, was very friendly and accommodating. I even brought one more person than I had originally told her and she brought out... More

My family (husband, wife, 3 children) stayed in the upstairs suite. It had a beautiful king sized bed in one room with cable TV. The "main" room was a living room with a couch (folded out into double bed). It also had cable TV as well as a comfortable wicker chair and other furnishings true to vintage beach deco. The... More

Lady who's in charge of the Motel at first was nice but then problematic. She doesn't let any visitors come visit you, she's a stalker (Very intimidating), Gives you all kinds of problems, racist, two face, etc.... I personally don't recommend people to stay there not even for a mimute. The building probably was made in the 1800s. The kitchen... More

I've been here twice and have two more weekends booked. I can afford much more pricy accommodations, but I choose this place. Not a lot of bells and whistles, no room service, no restaurant...but management is friendly, I can bring my dog, its clean/ quiet, convenient, and I love that I dont have to deal with the issues that come...

Well, I'd like to first start by saying, if you are looking for all the finer things in life then perhaps you should either stay home or find another place. This is an older home that has been converted to a motel. The location is perfect and my husband and I found it on a whim when he and I... More
