We have visited this place many times and never had a problem until today. We drove up from New York for my husband's birthday. He was looking forward to relaxing in the jacuzzi bath in room 5 the room we always get with a king bed. We booked it in July and arrived today only to be told that they switched our room. Someone else was in room 5 and we were handed the keys to room 3. My husband checked us in and came back to tell me and I was so mad! We looked at room 3 and it was not even comparable. Two twin beds and a regualar bath. It smelled musty and there was a black beetle crawling on the bed! We were totally disgusted went back to the front desk and asked for a refund. The lady apologised and said if we come again tell them not to switch our rooms. We should not have to!! When we book room 5 we expect to get room 5 or at least let us know it had changed before we got here. We will not be back, you have lost us as customers. The manager apologised to my husband but still that is not good enough or good business practice to your loyal customers. Thankfully the York Harbour Inn down the street had vacancies and the room is lovely. I highly recommend it.

Perfect location! This is at the south end of the beach and all rooms face the ocean - spacious, clean, & gorgeous views!! FYI - Check the tide tables and plan accordingly as the tide change was drastic. We are from NJ and used to moving our beach chairs a few feet back when the tide comes in. Here, the entire beach disappeared for a few hours. It was unexpected yet fascinating! Note: The manager/owner? was working between hotels so when we arrived it took a bit of time to find her to check-in. We had to go to the sister hotel property and literally track her down. Fortunately, many kind guests were repeat customers and able to guide us in the right location. I would suggest calling ahead of your arrival to make sure she is available at your arrival time.

Very clean and efficient. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room had a kitchenette with microwave, mini fridge, small sink, and 2 burner stove. Nothing fancy, but the room smelled clean and the bathroom had no mildew as is often common at shoreline properties. The ocean view off the balcony was nice, but had a few powerlines in the way. Just a short walk across the street and the view is unobstructed. If you're a morning person, get up to enjoy the sunrise. Just to note, there is no elevator or pool. You do get a breakfast voucher ($14) to the Lobster Cove Restaurant, about 1/4 mile to the south. Long Sands Beach is a short walk to the north....the shoreline directly across the road from the motel is rocky. Would go back!
