I wanted an inexpensive place to stay super close to the beach and was lucky to find this property. It was super clean and the staff were super friendly. I felt very safe traveling alone here. The beach is about a 4 minute walk and that was why I was here! Stayed only one night, it was quiet and the... More

First- I'm not sure you even rented a room here as nobody with the name Lawrence comes up in my system. If you did, thanks for staying with us. We are a small, locally owned and operated motel built of cinder block in the 1950s. We are not the Ritz nor some other hotel with a bunch of amenities. We... More

Okay, I'll start with a positive. The shower has plenty of pressure and hot water. That's it, nothing else about this dump merits any positive remarks. Let's start with the infrastructure. It's falling apart. Literally. The only hope at this point is a bulldozer. Holes in the walls, toilet paper rack falling off, cabinet doors barely attached, no blinds in... More

Thanks for staying with us. Did you talk to anyone at the motel about the issues you had? I did not hear anything about it. I don't know when you stayed nor what room you were in since you are in cognito. So you know- we are a small motel with limited time to get rooms ready and limited staff... More

We stayed in a double queen room with a kitchenette. The price was fantastic. The room was clean and everything worked. The staff was very nice and helpful. I asked for extra towels, pillows and was given without a fuss. The pool was great and pool area was clean and easy to access. The only two gripes I have are... More

AquaViewMotel, General Manager at Aqua View Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for the nice review Leabertia! I will look into the showerhead/arm issue. We were having some issues with our Wi-Fi access points while you were here so the 1 or 2 that were working may well have been overloaded. We have an average of 80-100 devices accessing our Wi-Fi at any given time during our peak season. We have... More

We stayed last year here and it was awesome. Got a different room this year, we are extremely disappointed. No chairs to sit on. No dresser. No chest of drawers. No hangers. All of our clothes have to stay in our suitcases and the suitcases have to stay on the floor. Nasty!!!

AquaViewMotel, General Manager at Aqua View Motel, responded to this review

Sorry you didn't like the room you had this year as you did the one last year. We had to get rid of some of the old dressers we had and haven't yet been able to replace all of them. I'm confused over the no chair issue though. There is a sofa and dining table with chairs in the room... More

Hotel was exactly as described. Clean with nice pool. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Proximity to beach was excellent. Would have been nice to have housekeeping service, but we knew that up front. It was nice being able to walk to some shops as well as Schooners. Would stay here again!

Thank you for taking a moment to post a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I guess we didn't make it clear but we do offer housekeeping service upon request. We don't clean all the rooms because we have found that most of our guests just want to relax here at the beach and have their... More

This was the second time that I have stayed at this range. Both times were extraordinarily charming, room is spotless and quiet, agents are gainful and obliging. I am amazingly content with staying here and will do in that capacity afresh.; I would endorse this hotel to anyone.

Honestly, this place is downgraded extremely from what it should be. This place is AWESOME! It's really close to the beach than what you think and has shops and food options in walking distance. The bathrooms are sort of small, but hey bathrooms are for small moments anyway. They have a big mirror outside the bathroom for you to get... More

We stayed in one of the King Kitchenette rooms on the bottom floor. Now obviously this is not a luxury hotel, so if you go in expecting that you will be let down. It is an older motel, but it was very clean (we both work in a hotel and inspected every inch upon arrival). The staff is very friendly,... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay for the most part. Sorry for the loud ceiling. The floors were built with wood and are a bit loud when someone is walking above. As far as pot holders- we HAD pot holders in each kitchenette but someone must've removed them from the room you were in. I have already replaced them and will... More
