if you expect to relax in peace and quiet its not going to happen. the street noise is ongoing just two feet away you get truck, bus, car and jet noise all day and night. the place has no ice machine (two ice trays in the room). stairs are a pain. we had been told by the owners daughter that...

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. The location is perfect and the kitchenette provided allows us the freedom to get up early or sleep in without worrying about making it out to a restaurant.... More

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

Pictures on website do not give an accurate description. Didn't know I would need to bring my own towels/washcloths, soap, etc to "enjoy" the stay.
