My overall experience was ok. I got my room really cheap and did not expect to much. The rooms were ok but need updating badly.The only complaint I have is the rude staff. We stayed a week and out of the whole week I only met one staff member that was nice and professional. My son and I were walking... More

We were there March of this year. When my partner told me that he had found a great place on the ocean front, with a balcony, and kitchen, two rooms with a total of 3 queen size beds, and it was only around $35 dollars a night, I was not real sure what we were going to walk into. Well,... More

I should have known it was going to be bad when the first thing you see upon arrival is a huge sign proclaiming NO REFUNDS. The room smelled. The refrigerator was in the bedroom area and made noise all night long. Carpet was worn through and full of sand. Water was standing on the bathroom floor and mold in the... More

Upon arrival we had to buy air fresheners and cleaning products to clean the molds in the bathroom. Kitchen floor and carpets were disgusting. It took me an hour to clean everything. Even if our reservation was for 5 people, we received only 3 towel kits, had to ask them everyday for more. Parking is a nightmare, shared with Best... More

We reserved our hotel online and upon arrival we found very little parking. Our room had a very strong stench, 2 inches of dust on the ceiling fan and on the a/c unit, and mold in the bathroom above the shower, the shower curtain was filthy, had previous tenants hair on the walls. The pools were freezing and people stayed... More

Inside the bathroom was mold in the shower ceiling and on the floor. Mold in fridge. Dirty sheets. Called room service and heather the manager of room service... More

This was our second visit to the Viking Motel this year. The room ( Oceanfront 2 room suite, 5th floor ) was very clean, as was the bath and kitchen area. The cookware, flatware and dishes were all stored nicely and were clean as well. And the view from the oceanfront balcony was spectacular !! The beds were comfortable and... More

First run-in was with the front desk when calling about the pet policy. Desk informed me that a crate was necessary for the animal yet there is nothing about this on the policy or anywhere on their website to see before you book. I was told that if I would have checked in without a crate my reservation would have... More

The hotel was dirty and smelled bad. While we were in the room, I wondered how dirty the filters were in the air conditioners. Both the sidewalks and rooms were filthy. Soap doesn't cost so much and cleaning the property would have helped loads. The steps in the office had carpet falling apart on each riser. The lights between the... More

We just stayed for one night and I am glad it was not longer. The pool is nice and the location is awesome. The room was old and worn down. The appliances in the kitchen where old and nasty. I would not have used that coffee maker, but the refrigerator was ok. The ac unit was not cleaned in ages... More
