Toilet did not work properly, ac was not cold, very few and inconvenient plugs for charging etc. The price of this motel should not have been more than $60. the marina is too dangerous to go to in the back on the river. Do not take young children to this dangerous marina.

The room does not get cold in summer heat if you partially keep the door open. The dock was under repair if you recall seeing all that lumber piled up on the seawall. There is never enough electrical plugs even in your home.

I was actually pleasantly surprised as there had been some updates. The nasty carpets had been updated to engineered wood flooring which is much nicer, but very loud. The room is small and the original bathroom needs updates - water was constantly running and lots of rust all

Carpet was disgusting! Coffee pot had mold inside we had to take it up and get a new pot. The WiFi did not reach our room so If we wanted to use it we had to go outside and sit a few rooms closer to the office. Management was super nice and they were renovating but overpriced

Hello dockDOG, I did tell you that because of severe unusual cold weather the water pipe broke and that the plumber was on the way to repair it. I remember you were very happy to receive $20.00 adjustment,you said so yourself. Exageration is not benificial to you mainly.

Does the motel have Wifi available?
Yes, the motel has wifi. I believe I had to ask the owner/manager for the password, if I remember correctly. The owner was also very helpful in pointing out two very nice places for dinner and then for breakfast.

There are very good restaurants nearby.-The light House,which has very good seafood menue and the food is also very good.BBQ which is a barBq RESTAURANT-I have been told the ribs are to die for. For light meals, a restaurant called 19/98 Grill is ideal
