“Horrible, horrible, horrible!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Old. Dirty. Run down. Only 1 roll of toilet paper at a time. When they came in to clean all they did was tidy the bed. Did not empty trash. Our room smelled old and musty and they tried to cover that odor with an air freshener that was too overpowering! The carpet was old and the floor was not level. They did not clean the bathroom area every day. While the staff was pleasant enough it was just a bad hotel all the way around.

Room Tip: If you do take a chance at staying here ask for a room on the "sound" side. They have win...

Upgrade needed. Motel is dated. Radio was poor. No movies available. Holes in screen. Not very sound proof. Reservation was wrong but corrected by staff.

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms. They were bright and airy. The beds were so comfortable they gave us the best sleep of our trip. We would definitely stay here again.

I apologize, but I have to say it was a bad hotel. I had a funny feeling, when I parked, but as I had already booked, I told myself to try..maybe the room would be nice. The hotel employee was helpful. The room was disgusting. I found hairs on the pillow, there were holes on the cover, the carpet was dirty. I just could not stay. I was lucky that I was refunded and that was the positive side of it. We spend a night to sleep in a hotel, is it too much to ask for a clean room?

The Inn Keeper was friendly and available for local information. The room had a tidal pond view with a window that actually opened. Will stay again.

This was the worst hotel i've stayed ever. It was filthy to where I didn't want to walk around without shoes on. The bathroom was furry and so was the heating/air conditioning unit. All of us had stuffy heads for the entire stay - maybe mold issue? Would never stay here again.
