“Old and Worn”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This place has seen better days. It is outdated and very old. Mattress was worn out, my air conditioner did not work - reported it and they worked on it but it still didn't blow cold air. Thank goodness it was not that hot or I would have been very upset. The location is great, but that is the only good thing going for this place. The place is overpriced for the condition and cleanliness. I will never stay here again unless they do a total remodel. I recommend tearing the place down and starting over again. This is such a great location they could have a really nice place if they started over from new.

I have stayed at this place for several years. It is and old motel, it used to be a Quality Inn. Even though it is old it is kept up. It is clean and the maid service is great, the rooms all face the beach with balcony's so you can enjoy the roaring surf and beautiful sunsets. This time of year the price is really a bargain. They have a lot of rooms with kitchens if you are into cooking while on vacation.

Room Tip: Ground floor opens up to the beach, all other have balcony's.

Pictures on the web site are not acurate. Web photo shows a loveseat when it is a bed and they advised that they took out the loveseats 6 mos. ago. Shows coffee pot but there wasn't one. Phone didn't have cable to connect to a phone jack . One tv didn't have a remote and they gave us one that would not work the tv until they found one the next day. Works were remodeling and woke everyone about 7am yelling at each other and making noise. Awaken at midnight by people two doors down who were locked in their room and couldn' get out because maintance did not fix it when notified the day before. No clerk on duty help them, just a number to call (remember the Phone). Ask to speak with manager when checked out and they said they would have him call. it a week later no call. Don't waste your time with these people find a nice hotel
that will treat you better.

Room Tip: Find a different hotel from other than the Reef or Origin because they are owned and managed by the...

We heard about this hotel from a friend at work..He said building's old, but very clean, close to everything, even walking distance....24 hour grocery store 1 block away....We got there and found everything he said to be true...We rented a kitchenette on the beach side(very reasonable),We rode our bike down and they let us park it near the office...Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, especially Sherry....There's a Sharky's next door....We walked out of our room, onto a deck, then the beach, less than 20 feet from our backdoor.....Room was clean , beds comfortable, air worked great.....We would and will stay again.......Thanks for helping make this one of our best beach vacations....Til next time.. :)

Room Tip: We had a beachside, ground floor, room 113

Absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed at. The room had a musky smell as if it had been closed up for a long time. We rented #538 which was a suite with full kitchenette, but it was of little use because it was poorly stocked with the usual tools, (pots, untinsils, etc.) It didn't even have a coffee maker as was advertised on their site. When I called front desk I was told that they had taken those out, and didn't have one I could use.
We layed towels down on the bathroom floor, so we didn't have to step on tile which looked as if it had never been mopped. There was mold on bathroom wall, and rust where tub, and toilet met the floor. Also rust on the napkin holder and toilet paper holder. The entire facility, including the elevator and exterior hall was dirty and unkept. Had I not booked thru expedia and had a no return on cancellation, I would not have stayed there. It certainly was not worth the 109. per nite. Given the choice, a sleeping bag on the beach would have been cleaner than this place.

Room Tip: don't waste your money here.

Location of this hotel is desirable but our room was run down, with smelly carpet I guess and very loud dirty dusty conditioner.
Everything was working. Beds quality was all right but that conditioner just did not let me sleep at nights.

I have never seen so many hidden charges for one hotel. I WILL NEVER stay here again! The service was terrible the room had holes in the walls. No working T.V. in the bedroom. No sheets or pillows for the fold out sofa. We had a view of a MOAT! If you value your money like we do i strongly suggest you stay somewhere else. For just 2 nights ended up costing us almost $500.00!
