From other reviews I read yes the building is old and the front desk person does need to be a little friendlier. Once you get to how her she is a great person. The rooms do smell of a lot of cleaner. Just open the window and air it out. If you want a bad motel experience go to Plainview...

This would have been the 11th hotel our tour group would have stayed at in our coastal tour. It's the first I'm writing a review about. Our group was having fun over by the beach/dune area. We liked the area enough that we wanted to stay for dinner and decided to get hotels. We needed 3 rooms. I made the...

There's a fridge, microwave, tv (we couldn't get it to work past the main screen though), heater(which worked out after hunting for oysters)! We did find old soap in our shower which was disturbing considering these hotels are suppose to be deep...

The room had an odd odor, like mold and cleaning products similar to a shampooed wet rug. It is right next to the bay. The TV is ancient and didn't work, the wifi is non existent, and the...

Older and quaint setting perfect with fishing boats and restaurants near by. The room was clean but the sign said Non Smoking room but you could tell previous tenants smoked in the bathroom. Had to run the bathroom fan and keep the front door and windows open for a while to air it out. You could tell the hotel was...

Mgr Jan would not give me a pet room because I had booked with Booking.com. Had to cancel reservation and rebook with her to get a pet room. Major hassle and NOT worth it. This place is old and smells like mold. Don't stay here.

“Bottom floor is easier access, but expect to hear people tromping around in the room above you... should it be occupied. Shouldn't be an issue in the off-season, but it MAY be unless you request otherwise.”
