The room was reasonably clean and comfortable but out dated. The bathroom was very small. The room smelled very strongly of air freshener. The shower was lousy. We reserved months in advance and requested an upstairs room but when we arrived at around 9 pm on a Friday night, no one was in the office and a note on the... More

It is a motel in a town that is trying to make an economical comeback. The Paddlewheel is clean and basic, but ambiance, view and amenities are non existent. A single serve coffee pot would certainly help, as there isn't coffee available nearby except at one less than desirable establishment.

This motel is centrally located near everything visitors could want. The staff is friendly and very interested in patrons having a good time. The rooms are average but somewhat dark-could benefit from decorating with a color other than brown; bed was comfortable, air conditioning worked extremely well! Refrigerator was a nice touch. No coffee maker-not sure why. Would also suggest... More

We ended up in Crisfield sooner than expected not knowing where to stay. We found this place by accident. What a fortuitous discovery! The staff is friendly and local. If you want to know about where to go or what to do, they will surely help. A clean and quiet little two story motel. The floors are hardwood on the... More

The hotel is very clean, and the staff is so friendly you feel like family. Normally a group of us ladies go and have a wonderful time. Crisfield is small and not a lot to due, but it is my hideaway. Highly recommend it

Spent the night in room 6 of this quaint (practically the only commercial lodging available on Crisfield) and we're extremely pleased. Staff friendly and helpful, room clean and nicely appointed. Conveniently located (we walked to the Crab House tiki bar) and thoroughly enjoyed our getaway to this quiet quaint little water man's town. These days you don't get much for... More

First of all, this motel is now called Captain Tyler Motel. Apparently this is a name change without an ownership change. This is an older motel that is reasonably well kept. Bathrooms are very small and there is only a rack on the wall for hanging clothes. No coffee pot, but does have a hair dryer, mini frig, microwave and... More

The previous reviews on on the money, just an old motel that is within walking distance of the fairgrounds and local eateries. Overpriced, not sparkling clean but just a place to rest your head. Average.

This is my second year attending the Crab Cruise and staying at the Paddlewheel Hotel. Donna is lovely and treated us like family. Yes, it is an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and the hospitality is outstanding! I will definitely be back next year!
