We had 6 people so we got the 2 bedroom suite. We came into it last minute and got a good deal but we knew it would not be 5 star. It's older but good view. Elevator worked. Pool was good/clean . Walk to beach perfect few steps. Carpet needs cleaning. Did not have microwave, hair dryer. Kitchen did not... More

This motel is very old and outdated. The staff are average and the facility offers the basics. My trip was for a fishing trip and it served our purpose in that it provided beds for us to sleep and that is all we needed. If I were coming here for a family vacation then I would not recommend this motel.... More

Cheap is what you get! If you are just looking for a cheap place to stay, with no frills I'd recommend the Viking. While our room was exactly what we were told it would be, it was far from comfortable. Our room was beside the hotel next door's pool and the laundry facilities for guests at the hotel. Our first...

We made reservations in May. We arrived at the motel and we were told our reservation for an oceanfront suite had been canceled but lucky for us they had one room available. We go ahead and take the room. BIG MISTAKE! We go to the room and find the door standing wide open. The room is hotter than Hades! We... More

We had a fantastic time! The room was filthy, but we didn't spend much time there. It's cheap for a reason. The kids enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed being on the beach. Bring your own blankets and towels.

OK - this motel is not billed as a luxury resort, but is billed as being on the ocean, and that's about it. It's cheap, has a locking door, and a soft-ish area that is useable as a bed. We stayed here for three nights, and while I found the room to be terrible, I was satisfied because I went... More

This motel was so terrible I'm not even sure where to begin. My boyfriend and I booked our 5 day stay at what looked like a nice motel (for the price) and a nice location. What we thought was going to be the best week of our lives actually was a week of Hell. To start off our check in... More

I recently booked to stay at this budget hotel, when booking it looked nice on the reviews,on the beach which was what we wanted, I did not expect any luxury but did expect parking and cleaned room. When we arrived the parking was terrible, it took over an hour to find a parking space, even though the hotel has a... More

Being in a band we’ve had the pleasure of staying at some dives up and down the east coast over the years but this takes the absolute cake. This is by far the worst hotel I’ve ever been in. There is no parking convenient to the rooms and the lot is horrible to start with. Upon checking in you will... More

My husband and I vacationed here for a week. Our room was clean, there is a place to hang your clothes with hangers. The air conditioning worked great, housekeeping was on top of keeping our room clean daily. Every day maintenance was working, cleaning the pool, sweeping the sidewalk. The kitchenette was nice, supplied with everything advertised. The staff was... More
