I will get straight to the point. I was going to stay the night and decided to pay 78$ for this motel. The reviews were good, but obviously faulty. After paying I was able to mark a crack dealer, and two low end hookers right outside my door. This might be a great thing for some, but for me and... More

The rooms were dirty we had to get our own cleaners and clean it. You have to throw your own trash away. You have to take your towles to the laundryroom to be laundered and pick up your clean ones. The laundryroom was dirty. The phone did not work. The fridge and shower curtian were moldy. And NO REFUNDS.

We had business in Wilmington and the port area, so we booked this place because it accepted pets. I booked on the web site and paid via PayPal. When I got to the motel they said the web site doesn't work, the money will not go through, and you don't have a reservation. So I paid again (and will have... More

The floors and bathroom are dirty, the view is a rubbish tip, possibly the worst place I ahve ever stayed at, the pillows were stained and when I complained they did nothing except argue. After a lot of shouting they gave us one clean pillow for 2 people. Dont... More

I love coming here. The family that runs it are cool. The rooms are pretty clean. Every room has a variety of mirrors. The air conditioner works great and they allow pets. They also have a big swimming pool and jaccuzzie thats hidden, not to many people know that. I come here two to four times a month

I was in Long Beach for the Scottish Rites music festival and thought this place looked nice with the heart shaped spa. I arrived when it was just getting dark and I was tired from driving all day from the Bay Area. I could see when i arrived it wasn't a place I should stay alone. I had already booked... More

This place is a dump - their main source of review is from homeless shelters. Ladies of the night line the front at night, the rooms are dirty and have bugs, they never clean your room. They have a no refund policy.
