We liked our room, but there was no light in the toilet. It was too late in the evening to bother getting it fixed, and we can only hope they replaced the light bulb the next day as they promised. We especially liked the breakfast vouchers which got us each breakfast cooked to order, eggs, sausage, etc. Hotels have lagged... More

I travel all over the country and have stayed in many hotels. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the rooms were in this hotel. The front desk and staff are very professional. The beds are clean and comfortable. And the free breakfast is nice because they actually cook the breakfast for you that is free. We had a problem with... More

We were on a time limit I went to get into the shower and the knob was stripped I had to wait for maintenance to arrive. Beds very... More

A great value. The room was very nice and the people who work there are very friendly. The morning breakfast was also great. Would definitely stay there again. The room was very spacious for myself, wife and three grandchildren

If you are looking for a bargain so that you can afford to visit Rockport-Fulton then this is the place for you. My greatest disappointment was when housekeeping failed to secure the door when they left one day. Not the surprise I wanted after a day at the beach. Fortunately nothing was gone. Housekeeping had a failed to give us... More

We stayed here on a quick trip down to the coast. The price and the ratings were both good. Check in was quick and friendly, the hotel offers a free breakfast that is made to order. The rooms are a little outdated and have a certain lingering smell. Smoking isn't allowed but the hotel is pet friendly so this may... More

Large room, very well kept grounds, helpful front desk and a very good breakfast served by Kathy who has been employed by this motel for 19 years. She was very busy cooking, serving breakfast for a packed house ,on the 4th of July weekend, and greeted everyone with a smile. One thing that needs some attention- the bathroom toilet bowl....

What a delight. My wife and I have stayed at this motel for many years. We were quite delighted to find that Econo Lodge had taken over the management of this motel from the previous owners. They are restoring both the physical facilities and the service to what we had come to expect many years ago prior to the previous... More
