I had heard horror stories of the old owners and change overs..but upon arrival was pleasantly surprised at the clean nice room and remodeled efforts! Great fresh continental breakfast and eating space.Shirley?Owners daughter? was great and friendly..remembering names and addressing you by them as a personal touch.Redeeming factor for Korean culture and attitude..as I think she is? After staying at dude at the OTHER Motel at end of strip(Wakefield) where my husband and I experienced a nut case manager? walking around looking angry most of the time it seems or yelling at the lady on the desk that runs all over trying to do it all it would appear! Place stunk of smoke and gritty floor rooms..had ashtrays on every ac unit outside with butts so guess thats what draws all the smoke INTO the NON SMOKING ROOM! What a Joke!
So i guess this is a double review! GOOO to the Rivers Edge Hotel and be right on the Board Walk and nice gravel beach area..with a right AT HOME feeling! DON'T GO to Wakefield Motel..you get what ya pay for! Get a B&B service or the only descent place to stay in Colonial Beach .The Rivers Edge!! Just Hope they keep it up!Good Job!
