I really felt sorry for the drowned cockroach in the bathtub. I must confess I executed two more who were just taking a stroll across the floor. I felt bad about the crunching sound. Let’s just say NEVER AGAIN

I called in advance to verify the hotel could accommodate three guys and the man who answered said he would reserve a double bed with a foldout couch. I checked in and the front counter called me a liar and said “no one would ever promise you a couch”. He was rude and inexcusably an ass. No apologies. Moreso, the place was dirty, and breakfast was frozen junk food.

Okay. So I was told to beware of Market street. I am a travel nurse and needed somewhere to stay from 7:30am until about 6pm for 2 days on the weekend. They were kind enough, gave me a good rate. If they didn't have a vacancy, someone would go and clean a room for me. I found no other place in all the places I have stayed that would do that. Or I would hear Check back at 2pm...How can I do that when that would be the middle of the time I needed to sleep! Bob is the owner, at least that is the best way to say his name. He owns 2 motels in the area and did everything he could to make sure I was comfortable. Sometimes the floors had some sand on them. SURE! you are right by the ocean! Expect that! For a lower end motel, including the price being low, be understanding of that. If I contract again in the area, I know where I can stay and will be treated fairly! The place may be old, but, the shower was hot. And the AC was cold!

We stayed here for one night when we unexpectedly found ourselves in Wilmington on a busy weekend night and could not find a place to stay. This hotel is shady, stinky, dirty, and dangerous. 1. I pulled off the bed covers and found crumpled sheets (looked like someone slept in it) and hair all over. I doubt the sheets were changed. I requested clean sheets for both beds. The receptionist brought fresh bedding and I changed it myself. Gross!!! The pillows were stained and the mattress cover on one of the beds was disgusting. 2. The bathtub was dirty, rusty, and towels old and worn out. 3. The room smelled awful, so did the reception. 4. When I said the room was dangerous, I mean - you certainly do not want to get electrocuted. The lamp over the beds had no obvious switch - the only way to turn it on was by turning one of the lightbulbs by hand. My husband tried it. One bulb turned on. When he stuck his hand under the lamp shade trying to turn the other lightbulb on, he realized that there was none. The lamp was on and he was lucky not to accidentally touch the connections where the bulb was supposed to be. The other lamp in the room was placed at the spot where there was absolutely no outlet to plug it in. 5. Knowing the smell of the reception area from the night before, I did not have the courage to go and search for breakfast food. 6. The only bright spot was the easy check-in and the gentleman who worked that night. I am not too picky. A clean bed, bathroom, and a decently fresh room is all I need for the night when I travel. But this motel was a real nightmare. And the price for all of this? Over $100. Really???

This motel was absolutely terrible! The maids were extremely lazy, the room wasn't clean, it was noisy and full of questionable people. Non existent breakfast and part of the parking lot was flooded, soda machine was empty. What ever you do, don't stay here!
