Although this hotel is dated, the staff is very good, the room was clean and has a frig, microwave and nice wardrobe cabinets for stowing luggage and clothes. The floors are tile and easy to keep clean. The room has good sound proofing. It is close to the board walk and many shops and places to eat. The beach is... More

Small place, not fancy, but just what we needed for a bargain. Three minute walk to the beach. Ice cream and restaurants and drinks within a five minute walking distance. Shared balcony with chairs outside to enjoy our morning coffee.The cleaning staff found my cell phone right outside the room and picked it up, saved it at the front desk... More

Let me just start by saying that the owners are very sweet and helpful! She answered every question we had and even suggested places to eat. We had a single room (room 17) and it was just what we needed.... A place to sleep and shower. The room is small, but we didn't mind. The pool was nice even though... More

My family of 5 came in for the weekend from Raleigh. We were very pleased with the rooms. They were clean, and the AC was in great working order. The staff was very friendly and very helpful (I left a set of car keys after checkout and they called us straight away). This is not a 5-star luxury hotel. It's... More

My husband and I were "childless" for a couple of days and we decided to do an impromptu visit on the beach. Not much was available but we found this place on hotels.com. We own a 5star timeshare in Florida so we are accustomed to the 5star lifestyle. HOWEVER we have also stayed at mom and pop places like this... More

I would recommend this motel to anyone. The price was very affordable. The location was awesome, within easy walking distance to the beach, dining, shops, rides, pier, etc. The room was very clean, the pool was nice. The place had a nice little family set up in the back with grills, a dining area, and games for children. The staff... More

Affordable & CLEAN! Very friendly staff who actually made me feel like they appreciated my business. No frills, low key & within walking distance of public beach access and the boardwalk/amusement area. This met our needs & then some. Free wifi, cable tv, well kept pool onsite. Firm but comfortable beds. Very cool patio area to unwind with cornhole boards.... More

The place is old but updates have been made. We stayed in a double room with a kitchen. Everything worked fine. Beds were made every day and fresh towels brought in. The website does list two pools but only one is in use. The wifi tends to drop out frequently. It is well located within walking distance of most restaurants... More

Staff was very kind and allowed us to check in 3 hours early! Upon getting to the room I found stains on the pillow case and bed sheets. I am convinced they didn't change the sheets at all! There was hair on the sheets in addition to the stains. The toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned either with what... More
