I want to start by saying that the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is really good for a hotel at the beach that is not on the beach. It is across the street from a shopping center that has great dining and a grocery store. On the down side, the rooms were not very well maintained. I... More

We had no complaints for the entire week we stayed. The Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and when we complained about the fridge they immediately replaced it. The place was safe and it was close to everything. You can't beat the price!

No carpet in rooms, only Pergo floors. Shower curtain about to fall down. Hair dryer glued to the sink basin. Hall carpet to room was held down with white tape. Breakfast substandard. Furniture very worn with table leg almost worn through due to chair sliding into it. Location hard to locate from the street unless you knew it was there.... More

Peaceful stay. Room not that clean. Trash behind the night stand. Fridge not working. Needs a better cleaning crew but I paid cheap and got what I paid for. Bed comfy, staff very friendly. Parking lot dark and hard to see the drive way.

Worst stay ever!!!! No clean linens! It was not clean! Elevator didn't work the whole time which for me is fine but my husband is in a wheelchair and it was a bad experience. We asked to be moved to another room and management wouldn't even talk to us, as we were stuck on the 2nd floor for hours. We... More

Overall a great place to stay. Very clean motel. Service was great also. Had some negative things ie. Hot tub didn't work. Guest laundry was broken as well. The continental breakfast area was great and as long as you like belgan waffles the breakfast was good also. I will stay there again if they will have me....

We have 4 kids all under age 10. We were looking at rooms right on the beach but saved over $600 for a week staying here. We were not in the room except to sleep and shower. Walmart is across the road, Walgreens is on the corner and also very close to the zoo, Waterville, food and ice cream and... More

Bugs in room. Popcorn beside bed. Tiles from wall laying in floor. Food in Fridge. Sink has a toothbrush and other items in sink drain. Outside grass is high. Trash everywhere. Really would be a nice place if staff would take pride in their work. These rooms reflect on you as housekeepers and maintenance. I am a former housekeeper/ inspector/... More
