Hotel was clean. Like the fact that floors are laminate and not rug. Staff was very friendly. Pool was nice and clean and location was great-1 block from beach. Loved outside grills and picnic tables. There was a mix up with my room and the staff fixed the problem which was great. The bedspreads and blankets were torn and a little gross. I always bring my own blankets anyway. Sheets were clean. Downside-small rooms -We were there 2 nights so it was manageable. I would go back and plan to!

Motel was very clean and our pet room was very nice and clean. Location was excellent, close to the beach and all activities. Heated pool was great and staff were also quite friendly to work with! Enjoyed our stay with our beautiful retired Greyhound Gabby!

Room Tip: Our room was perfect for us with a dog, lower level and on an end. Nice quite street with cottages...

The location of this hotel can't be beat, as it is a very short walk to the beach. The room was clean, and the pool was nice as well. Problems I had during my recent stay: The biggest issue was the size of the bar of soap. I have never seen soap so small! It literally breaks in your hand the first time you wash your hands with it, nevermind if you are trying to take a shower. The second problem was the fact that this is the first hotel that my husband and I have ever stayed at where you need to buy your own ice!! They give you a bag the first night, because apparently they have no ice machine, but when we asked for more on the third night, they wanted to charge us $2. When we told them we have never heard of a motel without an ice machine, they told us that people off the street would come to get ice. (How is that our problem?) Lastly, the toilet ran constantly the entire time we were there. Probably could have been fixed with a simple call to the front desk, but judging by the size of the soap, and the ice issue, we didn't even feel like making the call and dealing with one more thing. It was a much better stay when we stayed here years ago. I hope they can correct some of these issues so that we could come back, because right now we will look for another place next year.

The king room was modern and clean with a flat screen TV. Staff was courteous and did a great job. Location is very central for the back strip. Pool is a nice extra. Would definitely stay again.
Only complaint is that is may get slightly noisy, might be from glass sliding door and/or neighbors.

We have stayed here many times and have always been able to rent a room for one or two nights. We were always pleased with the room. Recently, however, they are getting just way too difficult to deal with. We ended up at Hampton Beach last weekend and decided we would like to stay Saturday night and walked into this motel to inquire about getting a room for just one night and they wouldn't even talk to us unless we were willing to pay for three nights! The woman at the desk stated "we have rooms for three nights, nothing available for one night!" What? Isn't one night better than no nights? I can understand maybe requiring Friday and Saturday nights, but whoever wants to stay Sunday night on the weekend?!? Especially with the rates you pay for these motel rooms in this area! The majority of people work Monday-Friday and have weekends off! We went to Janmere and they were happy for the one night business.

Hello KD from West Rutland VT.

I am sorry that you were turned away from the office without a room, it is our business to rent rooms.

However, throughout the past 40 years we have managed properties in Hampton Beach and come to learn the patterns of when to ask for a minimum night stay; sometimes it is a 2 NT minimum (weekdays), sometimes it is a 3 NT minimum (weekends), depending on the unit it may even be more, larger apartments require weekly rentals.

No not everyone is looking for a 1 or 2 night visit and I know our policy did not work for your needs but it does for the majority of our guests. Our primary clientele generally books for 3 or more nights at a time. In theory if we were to rent all of our rooms on a given day for just that night we are actually sending away more business than just that 1 night rental. Because the traveller looking to arrive afterwork on that day may be looking to rent for the next 3 or 4 nights. Now that we have sold the room for 1 NT we have just lost out on the rest of the weekend. A bigger loss than the 1 NT rental.

These minimums are not required on all days, it would depend on the day of the week, the time of the season and the availability of rooms. Between all of our properties we manage 65 units, not once this season have we lost the rental of a room for a given night based upon the requirement of these minimum stays. We are not out there to mandate that you stay when you do not want to and understand that there are other places willing to fill their accommodations one day at a time.

NOTE to anyone looking for a short term rental we suggest that you call us in advance to check on the availability of a room for 1 or 2 nights. There are times, they do not happen often, when we have short term opening that day. These rooms are usually sold out first thing in morning.

We had plans to visit Hampton on a Tuesday and 4 days before that, we had a death in the family. The only way we could salvage our vacation day would be if we could switch that to Thursday. The manager, Michael Roy, bent over backwards to ensure that we could make the switch. Most other motels would have said 'sorry' and we would have forfeited the money due to their cancellation policies. The room was excellent and clean and we enjoyed our stay. But again, kudos to the manager for treating us with respect and dignity!! We will definitely stay there again!
