I looked at the reviews of this motel before I booked, yet there were not many so I weighed the good and bad and decided it leaned more to the good....or so I thought.
We arrived at 12:30 PM and the lady who checked us in was very friendly and informed us that our room would be ready by 2pm, and it was. The view was nice of the bay and so was the beach access. Fresh flowers in the room.
When I walked into the room, it smelled horrible. The microwave was dirty and rusted out. There was a plastic bowl of cereal / spoon, half eaten left in the fridge. There was pubic hair in the shower and on the curtain. There was hair behind the cups and ice buckets. Cobwebs along the base of the bed frames and in the corners of the room. The table top was broken, making it unusable. There were burned out bulbs in the fixtures. One of the fixtures was broken. The lighting at the vanity was very dim. Mold around the vanity sink and around the baseboard of the tub. Supposedly, the motel had been remodeled in 2010 however, the matress sets had to be the original ones. They looked old and sagged in the middle. We thought one of the beds was broken because when you sat down on it, the other side flipped up. However, it was only off the frame. I'm not sure how the maid service would miss that though, when they changed the sheets. There were dead bugs on the top of the air unit. Bathroom door was dirty as well as the walls. (Drip marks) We had three people reserved to stay in our room yet we were only supplied with 2 towels, 1 hand towel, 2 washclothes and a floor towel. I requested more towels and the maintenance guy came to give them to me. He had an attitude and told me that it was his day off. I went to the office to voice my concerns. I did get a new microwave along with an apology for that. However, I had to go to the office 3 times to get the bed fixed/back on the frame. The owner asked me why did I not call the maintenance guy instead of coming to the office. I told him that was his job and when the maintenance guy did come to our room, he was rude and let us know it was his day off again. He had the nerve to ask me "what do you want me to do about it?" Really???? I wanted a fixed bed and a clean room! Was that too much to ask? I honestly can't believe that the motel is even up and running. I will be finding the appropriate office to report this establishment to.
So if you are reading this, and are contemplating on staying here, spend the extra money and stay somewhere else, not that this place was cheap! It was terrible. I can't even imagine what the place was like before if indeed it was remodeled only a year ago. I would never let my family stay here again.
