This by far was the worst place I have ever booked. Pictures were very very deceiving. Please do not book this place for families or friends. Place was very worn and smelled odorous. West wing hotel room we booked was really a basement. Very shabby and very overpriced. Overall less then a 1 star.

Its ok. Nice location. Ocean is right across the street. Bus stop is out front & Dunkin Doughnuts is nearby for a quick breakfast in the mornings. Parking is difficult due to very small parking areas.

Loved my one night stay at this clean, authentic and funky little vintage motel. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating to my last minute reservation. They gave me a great price too! Conveniently located but on the edge of the heart of the strip but everything you need (music, bars, etc.) still within easy walking distance. I love all... More

I've stayed here before. I have never had a bad experience. The owner and staff are always friendly. They could make money training staff at other motels how to act. I stayed at one of the cottages for the first time. Loved it. Hit the pool, ride the bike, or sit on the screened in porch and watch the waves.... More

We stayed in "The Studio" in the historic cottages part of the hotel. If you go in understanding what this hotel is you will not be disappointed. This is a different hotel experience. If you are looking for resort level amenities go elsewhere. I can only compare it to staying at Grandma's summer cottage. The decor is dated. The furniture... More

Our stay was a real pleasure! "Mr Jim's" was small yet very clean, quiet, and just across the street from the beach and boardwalk. More than enough to do within walking distance. The beautifully landscaped yard served as parking while also allowing space to relax and prepare meals on the public charcoal grill. Kudos to Mrs Cook and her lovely... More

My husband & I stayed at the Cutty Sark recently, and unfortunately it was a disappointing experience. We had stayed there 3 years ago, and had no issues - perfect location, like supporting the smaller motel operations, clean, quiet, etc. This time, however, we had issues with cleanliness & noise. There were stray hairs left in the bathtub from previous... More

Great but had some issues with the air conditioning and the toliet got clogged up. Other than that staff is great and the location is amazing loved the heated pool. Parking isnt to great though. Ask for more towels and they'll come warm. Good.

June 22 to June 30 was our third stay at the Cutty Sark in as many years, so you know we love it! Not fancy, but we can't imagine staying anywhere else.

We stayed June 23-27. The hotel was an average one but it definitely had some great qualities. First, price! By just moving back one street from the ocean, we saved 50% on our stay. And honestly it takes no time to get to the ocean, which you can still see from your room. The rooms were small but had everything... More
