Clean, courteous, and convenient. Out house hunting so it was an inexpensive option and we really enjoyed our stay. Went back a second time and had the same room. Same great experience. I have been recommending it to family and friends who want to come visit.

We have stayed in this hotel twice before (this past week being the third, most recent time.) We love this place. Each unit has a small living room with a fold out couch and a two-person dining table, and a television with a stand-up fan, a small kitchen with full size refrigerator, oven, microwave and coffee maker (and cupboards equipped...

The room was dated, with walls covered in wood panneling, and paint worn off the corners of furniture, but it made me nostalgic for the place I stayed for childhood vacations, only missing the glass doorknobs. Everything seemed clean, and there was silverware, dishes, and cups in the kitchenette. However, my stay took a bad turn when the woman in...

Thank you for your review. We truly apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with other guests. Unfortunately, unless someone is being unruly, we have no control over situations we know nothing about. We are a small family business and run a respectable, safe establishment. All rooms are equipped with locks and safety latches. Again, we thank you for...

This is without a doubt THE best budget motel and the first I've ever seen with a 41/2 star rating and I'm giving it a 5!. All I needed was a bedroom and bath but instead I got an apartment with all the comforts of home for a very reasonable price. The rooms were clean as well as the kitchenette...

This place is a little Gem. Super clean, maid service daily. The Staff and owner are very nice, the unit was all we needed. If you are looking for amenities such as a pool, or grills, this is not your place, but who needs that with all of the gorgeous beaches in the area. Having a kitchen saved us a...

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the place is clean, spacious (includes a nice kitchenette) with a separate bedroom. We didn't get in until late and left early the next morning to catch the ferry so we appreciated the fact that the bed and pillows were very comfortable. A Best Buy!!

This little motel is fantastic! Clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. Friendly staff who really take care of their place. Wifi that actually works.

There was plenty of space - bedroom is small but separate from the living area and kitchenette. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. The room air conditioner was loud but cooled well and didn't keep us from getting a good night's sleep. Plenty of parking too, right outside the door to your room. I like to...

“The units are numbered from 1 (closest to the office and further from Rt. 1). To get the minimum of noise transfer, Unit 1 is your best bet.”

“There was some sort of generator (?) outside which ran all night. It was rather noisy, like a loud air conditioner. It would be best if you could get a room away from that.”
