My wife and I stayed at the Ship 'n Shore once again this year, as we have 6 years running now, and it was not the most pleasant stay. The comfort we once felt there has just up and left. It seemed as though the once family oriented motel with a great friendly feeling, has had a more corporate feeling this year. One of many new faces at the front desk seemed so proud of the fact that she was in "charge" of the housekeeping, that she made sure that whoever she was talking to knew it, or so it seemed. On a good note, they have put new windows in all the bathrooms, which goes to show they are still putting money into the place, and trying to make it better. However that was just not enough to compensate for the poor staff (or staff member), and the overall unpleasant corporate feel! We must say we really do miss Sheila and Joel, who seemed to have always gone the extra mile to make our stay more enjoyable. If you have stayed there in the past you know what I'm talking about. For others who have not, I would still recommend the motel for location.
