Older motel across the street from the ocean. No pool. No elevator, No restaurant, but a terrific breakfast deal ($7 coupon) at the Lobster Cove a short walk away. Located in Long Sands just south of Nubble light. Perfect for us because we had 8 rooms booked. Inexpensive Rooms had refrigerator, microwaves, some with sinks and dishes. Higher price on... More

The room was small but clean. The building is old, but it was comfortable. The views of the ocean were unbeatable! Watching the sunrise was awe-inspiring. Great location, close enough yet far enough away from the center of town. Free breakfast was actually a voucher for $7 off per person at a restaurant down the street so it actually ended... More

My wife and I stayed overnight here last weekend and we enjoyed our visit. We stayed in room 16, which was on the 3rd floor and offered a mostly private balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was clean and the bed super comfortable. The room also had a butlers pantry which consisted of a mini fridge, coffee maker, and small... More

This place is dirty and smelled like cigarette smoke. Even though the rooms are non-smoking, they allow it on the balconies (have disgusting ashtrays out), and the smoke wafts into the rooms. The rugs were so grimy, and exterior hallways rugs were ripped in many places. The say they have free hot breakfast, but what you get is a $7... More

Im sorry you did not find your stay here at the sunrise motel enjoyable. I feel that our rooms are comparable to most and better than others here on Long Sands beach. The rooms you stayed in were both remolded in the Spring of 2015 (#21) and the fall of 2015 (#19, a beautiful room) respectively. I can appreciate your... More

Though I think we were booked into the wrong room...the young man I booked with told me he was new, it was a clean, updated room. The staff were very friendly and took care of our requests straight away. The location is perfect for a beach getaway.

The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. When I opened the door to the room all I could smell was fresh linen! There was none of the usual hotel-type smell of cleaning products. The bathroom was also clean. I would definitely stay here again.
