My family and I arrive about 3pm the room was not ready had to come back at 4pm. The room was very outdated was not clean enough. I knew it was bad when my kids started complaining. You can only park on one side and across the street. The only good thing about this hotel is the it is on... More

The room wasn't ready when we arrived. Overall the value for the size room was a good deal.But the room smelled of smoke and other bad odor. A fight broke out with a mob of about 20 people and it took the hotel staff about 30 minutes to call the police. Parking for the hotel is only on one side... More

April 5th-7th. Honestly I was surprised friendly check in and she even told us it was booked solid on Saturday.

Fresh room It was... More

The Viking is a nasty horrible hotel. We stayed here for a weekend getaway. we got a 2 room suite on the top floor. There were 4 adults and 2 children. The a/c in the bedroom did not work right. There is no curtain over the window. The beds are uncomfortable. There was a small kitchenette that was outdated and... More

We have spent the last two summers at the Viking and we appreciate all that they do for their customers! Not once have I had a negative experience from any of the staff, they appear to enjoy their jobs which is a definitely a plus! Our rooms have always been neat and tidy (slightly outdated but who goes to the... More

I was a little apprehensive about staying at this motel after reading some of the previous reviews, but foor $29 a night for a 2 room oceanfront suite, I couldn't resist giving it a try. I was not disappointed at all. Upon arrival we found that the a/c had been turned on for us. The room was very clean and... More

We decided to stay at the viking again this year since our experience last year turned out to be better than expected. Is the place a little tired and worn around the edges? Definitely, BUT seeing the sunrise from our oceanfront balcony for 34 bucks a night is a steal. We figured why spend 3 or 4 times that amount... More

When I read the reviews about this hotel I was very wary, but being a college kid with two friends to go with me to the beachfront during spring break I figured how bad could the hotel be. I was very pleasantly surprised in the end. When we first arrived we had a major issue which was that someone in... More
