          Location, breakfast, comfortable bed.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          warm friendly atmosphere provided by all personnel.

          bathroom was too small and the tub's plumbing needed replacing.

        • Older travelers
          4.0

          The room was clean and neat.

          It was not a good experience. Maintenance of the room was poor. Many things were broken and we couldn't swim because the water was freezing. Not a heated pool. The door lock worked sporadically. Several lights in the room did not work.

          My wife and I enjoyed finding an excellent walking trail behind the motel allowing us to enjoy and early morning walk.

          The motel is located on busy, busy rt. 31. It is difficult at times to get out onto the highway.

        • Single
          8.8

          Very helpful staff, relaxing and clean.

          I thought for the length of the building there should be more access doors.

          It was very nice having a door that exited the inside and a door that exited the outside. Also, the pool was very nice.

          No microwave or refrigerator.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Good personal service and all staff members were will to do anything to get the job done.

          Great location for the price.

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          They had a nice breakfast and good coffee, except you had to take it all back to your room to eat it because the dining area was also the lobby during the day . The gold bedspreads and old tv's reminded me of my grandmother's house and the dust on the bed rails and dirty pictures let me know she couldn't see that well either. And the hotel isn't by the bay at all unless you like crossing a busy highway and walking thru another hotel's parking lot to get near the water. You had to sit in the parking lot if you wanted to go outside. No benches, tables or chairs to relax in. The pool was in a boxed in closet no more than 10 persons at a time. Check out was a big blowout because noone told us it would be $10 extra for another human and the taxes, wow, put on another $20 making it almost a $200.00 room!!!!!

          This hotel should charge $69.00 tops for a room. Not impressed in the slightest. The service was shabby and they took offense if you complained. I will never stay there again and neither will my friends and I'll make sure to pass the word!

          service-breakfast-

          cost-I know it was the weekend and is prob. inline with rest of motels but I felt it was a little pricey

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Reasonably priced. Good breakfast. Nice hot tub.

          The internet is problematic. We had a lot of problems signing on and finally just gave up. The staff was not helpful. They have no pay per view movies, just HBO. Also, there's no directory on the TV. The only way to no what's on a specific channel is to change to that channel. Very frustrating.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Rooms are extremely quiet. Good breakfast.

          Bathroom is teeny, tiny! This was not a priority to us. Breakfast area is also tiny but everyone was patient with each other and worked it out.
