Stayed in August 2015. For the price it wasn't a bad stay at all. Very clean room and bathroom. Our room had an air conditioner. We found beds to be comfortable, one of them could be firmer though. Internet wasn't the best. People were kind and helpful. It was overall a pleasant and relaxing stay. There is a bar with... More

Room was terrible, beds need to be replaced and sheets smelled like whoever stayed there last. Restaurant wasn't better, service was good but meal sucked, had a hot turkey, Gravy was lumpy and tasteless, potatoes were lumpy. Won't go back.

The bed was terrible, needs to be replaced. The TV was old and not working well. The advertised wifi wasn't connecting to the Internet. Some of the lights did not work. The restaurant in the morning was a complete disaster. The waitress was overworked and the food so so . Will not return

Wow.... newly renovated room? Maybe they painted, but the walls were never fixed, just painted over the bangs and holes. Gyproc screws coming back out of walls. No phone, no alarm clock, TV in an older 20"ish with no remote. The room smell musty. The bed springs are broken and you roll to the center. The carpets are either stained... More

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
