Absolutely the best place so far on our road trip. We are covering the whole eastern 1/2 of the US. We are staying in the triplexes. Do yourself a favor a check in here. Only 1 short block from the water. Great staff. Comfortable bed, and living quarters with full kitchen, here for a wk.

My husband and I stayed at Cutty Sark Motel, room 34, and had the best week ever. Just as promised we sat on our balcony and watched the Dolphins play everyday. Our room was perfect, it was clean, bed was comfortable, staff was wonderful. Its on Atlantic Avenue, trolly stop right out front, great pizza shop two blocks down and... More

We had an awesome stay, we'll definitely come back! The hotel room was super cute and the service was great. We could see the ocean from our balcony and it was only a one minute walk. Really nice restaurants where around.

This is a great little hotel right on Atlantic avenue. Very clean and well maintained with a throwback-to-a-simpler-time décor. Very reasonably priced during peak season. The owners are very pleasant.

The bus/shuttle stop is located out front.. Many maps, coupons and need to know brochures were located in the lobby.. Our room was located near the pool area.. My 2yr... More

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
