We were traveling south toward Virginia Beach and decided to turn in for the night. I kept looking for hotels, but everything was booked for the night. I finally found availability at the Shore Lodge for $80. It didn't look great outside and the tiny reception area reeked of smoke. It was late and we were tired so we gave... More

We certainly didn't expect much for an older motel in the middle of nowhere. So yourself a favor and book rooms ahead so you don't have to stop here. Flies took over the room and we found later an old egg Mc muffin which had mold. Very disgusting! The sink had black hair all in it and it wasn't mine.... More

I was greeted at the front desk by the manager of the property. we had arrived about 2 hours before the official check in time, and she smiled warmly and said." not a problem". I asked to see...

This was the most disgusting hotel I've ever had the misfortune of staying in. The room (and entire place for that matter) was FILTHY!!! There were bugs, stained and filthy towels & sheets and a plate of food in the fridge that appeared to be months old. I was also put out by the questionable clientele, one of whom tried... More

There were bugs in the cupboards. The fridge and microwaver was not cleaned for a long time... we tried the bed,... More

On our way home from Kiptopeke State Park to Philadelphia, our heads began bobbing late in the foggy night. We saw the sign for this hotel and quickly decided then we should spend the night. No one came to the door the first time I rang the bell, nor did they say anything, so I rang again. A tall, thin... More
