Stayed for one night and didn't even want to do that after we got there. It was old, dingy, and generally "ooohhh." The bathroom floor was stained, the carpet seemed dirty, and the sheets on the bed were wrinkled! Will never stay there again.

Rooms not very clean. Toilet was malfunctioning and needed new tank plug and float. It was not working when we got into the room, but I fixed it temporarily so we could use it. I asked for another room, but there weren't any avail. Carpets left feet/socks dirty. Bathroom and sink area not clean and really showing age. The only good thing is price. Pretty cheap compared to other hotels in the area, which is the only reason I don't give it a lower rating. The overall problem with old orchard is the lack of decent hotels. It consists mostly of low quality mom and pop hotels. This is just another one of those....

We agreed to pay a certain amount for 2 nites for a room with AC. The room we got had broken AC and a mold smell. They agreed to move us and stated one amount then changed it the next day when they knew they had us over a barrel. They appeared very shady with their approach. We have disputed the extra charge with our credit card company and will hopefully be reimbursed the OVER charge-Fool us ONCE-we will never go back. Bait and switch in it's truest form.

we called to see if they had a room available for a larger family that day. We got a great rate on a beautiful 3 bedroom suite. The living area was well maintained and very clean. The only dirt I seen was in the corners of the bathroom. Nothing a wet rag couldnt take care of. The bedrooms were of a good size and the beds were super comfy. The rooms were all painted nicely and the carpets were spotless. The outdoors was well maintained and the landscaping was very pretty. The pool was open and very clean water. The pool concrete deck was a bit peeling but what do you expect of an indoor area that is wet most of the day. The brochure said there was a jaccuzi but we did not see one available. No big deal to us but others may have questioed it. they had a cute play area for kids as well as a tennis court. You need to bring your own rackets and basket ball for the hoop. Overall we had a great time and would return.

The motel was clean but it was 2.6 miles from the beach. A rib place right down the street which was very good. Swimming pool inside which was nice and also clean.

First time we stayed here was August 2009 - was ok. 2nd time - August 2010 - Totally disgusting! Pool was dirty and cloudy, changing rooms were closed, paint was peeling really badly on floor in pool area. Now the room - Ugggh! - There was a large stain on ceiling and room smelled VERY moldy! - Kitchen area was gross! - Outside our room (from people next door) in small trash area - many cigarette butts and beer cans. Will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER stay here again! PS office closes VERY early. Photos of place LIE!

I see not too many people visit this page but I just want to share my experience with you all so to save you a few bucks. The website shows this place as a really nice clean well kept place. Then you get there and it's gross!!!! There's signs EVERYWHERE about no refunds... clearly this is a good sign that they are used to people requesting refunds. We had a room next to someone who clearly lived there... and had the tv loud after 10 which was a rule quiet after 10pm!! So we tried to call the office and they were not available ((good hotels/motels, always have someone on))! We come to a hotel to sleep and feel safe, there we did not and there was no one there to ensure our happiness in the room. We ended up leaving at 11 pm to go to the hotel across the street which cost us ANOTHER 80 bucks. The next day we go there to see if by chance we can get a refund or at least a room upgrade for our last night that we paid to stay there. His excuse was that the walls were thin... OHWELL!! That they could move us but it would cost us another 8 bucks. I am sorry but we JUST paid 80 bucks to stay somewhere else for the night and already paid them 130 for the 2 days... But as my husband was trying to argue for the FREE move another person who lived in the motel ((if that tells you much )) and he was fighting with the owner about fleas being all in his room. WTH. So my husband decided we were going to cut our losses and we went home. This clearly ruined our vacations. They may not give refunds but they can rest assured that others will know about them as well as the bbb. USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN EVEN CONSIDERING STAYING HERE. THE HOTEL ACROSS THE STREET RODEWAY WAS MUCH MUCH BETTER AND CLEANER FOR AROUND THE SAME PRICE!!
