The price of the room was awful for what you got. We had one double bed and a bunk bed. The Tv went out in the storm at night. The shower wall had packing tape over half of it and you had to be like 4 foot tall to use the shower. There were spiders in the bathroom in each... More

I was there with friends in 1982. We mainly wanted a few hours sleep and a shower. Filthy in everyway. Nothing was even OK at all... Couldn't even take a shower because it was only dripping and the water was total rust. We got ripped off. Couldn't sleep. Wasted our time and money. I can't believe health department has not...

I approached the office and asked... More

I stayed here, and it was fine. No bugs, no grime, just a regular old motel room in a regular old motel. There is a pool, bar, and a crab shack/diner. The owner was nice although a bit crude. The reviews here are from disgruntled middle class people who can't afford a better motel but still expect the comfort inn.... More

My husband and I stayed here many years ago. After reading the reviews, I see nothing has changed. I could identify with the last review TOTALLY!! We still talk about it after all these years.
