Stayed one night while visiting the fort and the lighthouse. Checking in the lady was very nice, suggested places to eat and see. Opening the door to the room I was hit with a powerful musty smell so we left the windows open a while and could then breath. The room was clean and spacious. The double beds were comfortable....

We stayed here in August 2014, if you are looking for economical, clean lodging, this provides that, does not have some of the amenities you would find at other places like a blow dryer, in room coffee maker, bar fridge, iron or ironing board in room, but does have laundry facilities, pay for use, good continental breakfast and very friendly,...

The staff were very helpful: gave directions to the lighthouse, recommendations for dinner/entertainment, and coupons to go to the Fort. The motel is close to restaurants and grocery store. The room we had was nice and comfortable, but the hot water was off and on in the shower. Free breakfast includes cereal, oatmeal, toast, bagels, yogurt, juice, coffee/tea. Would stay... More

Overall a nice, clean friendly hotel. Nothing fancy, nice bar area. No food though. Check in person were very nice. Fast and good all four of our checked in, in no time. First place I ever had to pay for ice, but they do give you, your first bucket of ice for free. That's a little unusual. They do have... More

We stayed here in October as most places were closing. This motel is in need of a serious update but quite clean. The walls are thin and the bar noise goes on until late. The bed could have been more comfortable. (my husband says it was the worst bed he ever slept in) They serve 'breakfast' but we are not... More

We stayed here just the one night before we visited the famous Louisburg fortress. It's not fancy and age but is also clean and quiet and safe. Most of all, for being an older hotel did not smell like cigarette smoke. Lots of choices for free breakfast which included coffee juice milk cereal toast bagels jam and yogurt. It's just... More

We stayed here because our original hotel overbooked. I'm sorry to say that it was awful. The curtains let in light, There were only two coat hangers - the type for trousers. You could hear everything in connecting room. Everthing was very old and shabby. The worst thing was the bed and pillows. The bed was rock hard and the... More

loved the service from the front desk, such a nice lady, offered us a suite which was spacious and very clean. Informed us of all the activities in the area. So grateful for her help because we had a chance to go to the Playhouse

We stayed in the older section of the motel and it was very very basic. The door was stuck so we had to kick it to get in. Very musty, mouldy smelling. Dingy, old furniture. Beds were substandard. It was, however, clean and pet friendly, which were pluses. However if you have the choice, stay somewhere, anywhere else!
