We booked a room at this place while traveling to the beach on Expedia. Upon arriving I walked in to the front desk and didn't like the looks of the place. Instead of a lobby...there was a pool hall. It was dirty and I was spooked by the vibe. Not what we were looking for. Deciding not to stay there,... More

The Serena Inn is apparently under new management and I had seen their ad on craigslist and was looking to stay somewhere a couple of weeks before I could move into my own place. The staff is very courteous and quick to take care of any need you may have. The motel is currently being renovated so they had new... More

We booked this hotel/motel accidently, thinking it was Country Inn across the highway. There isn't even a word to describe the room. DISGUSTING, is a word too good to describe it. No lock on the door, stains on the towels, sheets unclean with stains, poop on the toilet seat and so much more. Country Bates Motel is more like it.... More

Wow! First off a great price and friendly staff. Lobby was freshly painted, very ornate. House keepers were thorough, took their job seriously, and made sure we had plenty of fresh towels. Overall experience was great and cant complain about price. Miss them already! . Would recommend to friend

I mistakenly booked this hotel instead of the Country Inn for 1 night. What a dump. The sheets were dirty, the non smoking room reeked, and the front desk called me twice at 1am asking for a copy of my checkin paperwork. Do not stay here.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel at 10:00pm Monday night 10/08/12 and asked how much the room was the front desk person said $50.00 only because we were tired of driving we said okay book the room. The first room that we stayed in had no remote no cable hooked... More
