We just got back a from 5 days at hampton beach,We have been going to hampton for 7 straight years now. I have stayed at not so nice places there. but nothing as bad as the Royal Crest. Where to begin. We stayed in a kitchenette room (27) with 2 double beds. Opening the door your met with a overpowering smell of mold and disinfectant. There were dead black flies in the picture window sill. The door had a push button lock thats all and it barely worked.You had to play with it to get it to lock. The picture window curtain was too small for the window so it let in all kinds of light when your trying to sleep. The beds were absolutely disgusting. Filthy, dirty box springs and no mattress cover on the bed. I didn't look at the mattress I was too afraid to look. The bed itself was very old and hard as a rock to sleep on. The sheets were paper thin and scratchy. The blanket had cigarette burns on it. The bedspread had holes and rips on it and it was for a queen size bed. We did not use the blankets or bedspreads. I stayed in my clothes the first night. I was afraid of bud bugs, but there wasn't any thank god. The kitchenette had a four burner stove. There was elbow noodles on the stovetop when we checked in. the burners were rusty and dirty. I did not do any cooking. Too gross. The coffee maker had left over ground in it from the previous guess. The silverware drawer was broken. The bath was very old, but we had hot water everytime. The small tub could have been alot cleaner. I was not happy that they did not have a ice machine. They told us to go to the store on the corner to buy ice. I'm pretty sure they own the store. The name of the store is Royal Market $2.50 a bag for Ice. I have NEVER stayed at a motel that didn't have a ice machine for their guest. The pool was large but it was not heated like they advertise. One day it was warm thats all. Anyone that wants wifi forget it they don't have it. We tried everything we could to get connected. We went to all the hotels around to get passwords most gave them to us, a few wanted to charge $10 for the passwords. Even with the passwords we couldn't get a strong enough signal. They do offer a little room off the lobby that you can plug in your laptop. Not very convenient. If the spent $150 for a router they'd have wifi.To cheap to get it I guess. One day at the pool we had to listen to a floor sander taking up the outside walkway carpet the hole lenght of the hotel.It went on for hours. It was extremely loud and annoying. Anyway the location was okay. But if you can stay on the ocean boulevard its much more convenient. The staff was not very helpfull.We asked where a good movie theater was and they said the Ioka theater in Exeter was decent. After driving 30 minutes the place is a hole in the wall. I'm not even sure its a movie theater. Looked in the window cringed and left DUMP DO NOT GO THERE! Well after spenting close to $700 We didn't get a thank you come again.Would I recommend The Royal Crest NO!
