It was fine. nothing to write home about, but you can ignore the slanderous things said in reviews. If that was true, it isn't anymore. It is a convenient location for travelling to nearby attractions, it is clean and has decent beds. The TV works, there is a pool (we could not swim due to late inspectors?-but we didn't care...

We were greeted warmly. Our room was big, and clean. Seemed to be newly painted. It is not fancy, but it is definitely nice. It served our needs and I would definitely stay with them again. Not far from downtown and we enjoyed the restaurants there.

This place was awful. When my husband and I arrived, the outside looked nothing like the picture shown on this site. The office was dark and dingy. When we got to the room on the backside of the motel, no windows on one side and our room was next to a storage shed, the room did not look inviting at...

Easy access off of Rt 127 / Eastern Avenue. From the outside, the rooms look like storage units or sheds. Once inside, the lofted ceilings make the rooms appear very spacious. The beds were like sleeping on box springs, but for the price, we were satisfied. A nice grassy area is off of the back door that overlooks the tennis...

We had booked a room in this lodge motel on october 2015. When we arrived we saw an awesome place with pool, basketball court, and a well groomed garden. Kind manager. Things changed when we opened our room door. We found a giant room, with a very high ceiling, very very old furnitures. The fitted carpet was very dusty and...

To us, it's a 5 star hotel, because, first, Komal and her family are always so welcoming, and are always there if you have a question or need anything. We've stayed there for, I think, at least the past six years (if not more). We have a dog, and pets are allowed. There is a pool, if you need a...

The rooms are very clean. They respect your privacy. Even though we weren't on the water, we were within 10 minutes to many beaches. They also supplied passes to some beaches. We brought our own little hibachi, we put music on with our Bose radio. We had a little birthday party for my daughter outside in the back of our...

We were afraid to sleep in our room. It reminded us of the Bates Motel only not as clean! To date the worst room my family has ever stayed in!!!!! Even our dog stayed in his crate and kept a watchful eye all night. How this place is allowed to stay open, is one of things you just shake your...
