John & Joni have made me feel like family. Cathy & Alec have been very attentive of our needs.Joni even let me borrow her PC because my hubby drove... More

Water pressure good and the toilet flushes well ... other than that, carpet filthy n disgusting, dead flies in little fridge, shower curtain rod broken n hanging... on and on. The front desk evening staff was pleasant. Paid way to much though. Pass this motel n keep going.

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

When i read the other reviews i was very skeptical of staying at THE SHORE LODGE. but i was so pleasantly surprised. 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

the most horrible place we've ever seen - we left it after 30min, because it was so dirty everywhere - the bedclothes had a lot of stains, the room was extremly poorly ventilated and smells like a dirty sock. There were bugs in the cupboards. The fridge and microwaver was not cleaned for a long time... we tried the bed,... More
