Although not a new property it has an aura about it. We have stayed here many times and the staff and the office people and even the maintenance make you feel at home. You have your own private beach access and a gazebo with a grill to have a cookout or just to get out of the sun for a... More

If you like a run down hotel that smells like wet dog and smoke this is the place for you! The bathroom sink was falling apart there were stains all over the walls. Glad we only stayed one day. There were no bugs so that was good. The staff was not friendly. Very out dated kitchen rusted refrigerator.

This resort is very clean. Great beach access, grill that you can use, good hot showers, great pool, and pet friendly. This is in walking distance to the pier (and free pier passes), a couple of restaurants, and a couple of ice cream shops. The people that work there are awesome! They make you feel like family. It is a... More

Bottom line up front: If you want a place that smells like smoke and you don't care about decor, how comfortable your bed is, and a place to sleep this is your place. I was very underwhelmed by our stay. When you pay $180 for a room you expect the standard to be a little higher than what we received.... More

Stayed with my husband 3 nights in March. Pros: Pet friendly, free pier access, reliable hot water and water pressure in shower, clean, good maid service, easy parking friendly check-in. Cons (Apartment): Every single furnishing top to bottom is old and in desperate need of updating including carpet, bathroom floor and especially mattress and bedding. The rooms are very drab....

We liked it. Clean and reasonably priced. Close to beach and pool was nice. We stayed 2 nights and we will return. If looking for a family, pet friendly place, this is it. If you want high class amenities, look elsewhere.

The best thing about this hotel is it is right across from the beach and has nice views from the rooms. If you have a dog it is one of the only choices of places to stay in that is this close to the beach. If you don't have a dog Do Not Stay Here. The other reviews say it... More

We found the motel online, and the location opp the beach sounded ideal, they even allow dogs which made it perfect. We booked a room for 4 nights and arrived around 7pm after a long car ride. The fact that we were one of only 3 cars at a beachside motel in mid-August immediately raised a red flag. They insisted... More

Three lousy nights before we just walked away after tehy did NOTHING to remedy problems. Overall the accommodations were unsuitable and unsatisfactory and completely failed to me the standard promised in their advertising. For three nights we tried to get the issues resolved unsuccessfully and checked out one day early, moving to the Holiday Inn Express for our final night.... More

If you are looking to take Fido with you and want to be across the street from the beach and around the corner from Caswell beach which is a Pet Friendly (think off the leash until 9am during high season and off the leash all the time otherwise) then this is the place for you. If you have taken your... More
