My family & I have been coming to the Capri Motor Lodge for about 15 years now every summer. We have many great memories here & love the fact how close everything is in walking distance that we like. The suites are spacious & I love that we have a kitchen in them. The family that runs this business is wonderful & they really get to know their clients...very friendly atmosphere!!

Thank you,
Donna Lagares

Once again we had a wonderful week (June 6-13) staying at this establishment! This was our second visit in the last two years, and we will definitely return. We chose the Townhouse Unit #1 again for this vacation, and absolutely loved the spaciousness, cleanliness, and location. We spent many hours at he pool and enjoyed outdoor ping pong, swimming, shuffleboard, and total relaxation. The nearness to the beach makes this location very convenient, and the shopping areas are within a short walking distance as well. We recommend the Capri Motor Lodge Townhouses highly to vacationers of all ages. Can't wait to come back next year.

We stayed here for 1 night with 2 rooms. Its a older hotel but well maintained and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They were the only hotel that would let us book 2 weeks in advance for a 1 night stay with 2 rooms.

We stayed at this motor lodge a couple weekends ago. You are "wowed" by it being right on the ocean and having a sparkling swimming pool right there in the front. However, the lady behind the desk had the customer service skills of a turtle. She seized the opportunity to do some follow-up paperwork from a phone call (she was on when we came in) while we were standing there! I felt like saying, "that can wait, we are now the priority!".

When we got to the room, it smelled musty. Yes, it was on the ocean, however, knowing that someone has booked a room, the maid service should have come in to open some windows and turn the air on. Cleanliness was ok in the room, and I should know, I used to be a chambermaid.

The bathroom was horrible, though. It looked like it hadn't been updated since 1961. The drain in the sink did not work and you were left with a sink full of water when you turned on the faucet (and you know how fun that can be while you brush your teeth). The shower was the worst part. The stopper for the tub which goes up for a bath and down for a shower was broken!! Therefore, while taking a shower you had to balance with one foot on the lever while trying to shave at the same time. NOT FUN!! And, the toilet ran!! You had to jiggle the handle just right or it would run for hours. We figured it was "par for the course" and tried to make the most of it, but you can believe we are never, no never staying at this place ever again.

We booked at the Capri at the last minute and were able to get top floor, next to sundeck, great view of ocean. Room was ok, view spectacular, kitchenette, adequate. Beds were ok but the pillows were not. Our only complaint about our 4 day stay was the office workers' children (all seven of them) middle school age and younger, running amok, loud, undisciplined, rude, jumping in pool with older people getting wet from their splashing. Other guests thought these were visitor's children, and were surprised they belonged to the staff. Boys hitting croquet balls at guests, Girls screaming and running up and down the corridors, sometimes on rollerblades. Just out of control. I hate to think this went on all summer. We would definitely go back, but, the owner(s) should know what's going on.

My husband and I stayed in one of the newer two room suites and the accommodations were great. Plenty spacious and clean. We are going back on July of 2009 and renting one of the townhouses along with other family members.

We have stayed in one of their older single rooms and I agree, they are very outdated and dingy....but the newer suites facing Madison and the townhouses in the back are great!
