3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

We had hoped to camp for one night but our tiny tent was dwarfed out by a full park of RV;s. So we opted for a room that was a good price, but obviously bare bones.Depending on what you want, the location is prime, and the price is amazing. But if you are used to any type of luxury, avoid this motel.

I should have listened to my instincts after meeting the motel manager, what a sleazy seeming character. While we were booking the room, he was going on and on about how his prices were better than the other motels, and how terrible the other motels were in comparison to his. How annoying. I didn't want him to feel like a fool, so I didn't tell him that I had already been shopping around and knew he was full of it. We only stayed here because our friends were already here.
The room was very dark, very old looking. It was obvious it hadn't been remodeled in some time. My boyfriend went to use the bathroom and found a surprise in the toilet. Yuk! We were there for North Rocks the Bay Weekend, so we didn't spend much time in the room. Our last night there, the people in the room next to ours came back with a bunch of people around 2 or 3am and woke us up. They decided to invite some people back for a party. My boyfriend banged on the wall telling them to quiet down, and they were screaming at him through the walls. Then came out banging on our door and window.
If you want a nice place to stay, or even a decent one at that. I recommend going else where. This place was a total night mare. We will never be back.
