business stay

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 16, 2015
Great location. Quiet. Felt dirty, old, out of date. Thankfully it had decent tv, refrigerator and microwave. If they would freshen the rooms it could be a cute place to stay. Surprised Howard Johnsons name is on it as below their standard.

one cold night

Would not recommend Tue, Feb 17, 2015
I got this room in February so it was cold. The heater wad comfortable. I was dissapointed with the WiFi. Weak signal. Took forever. This was not worth the 50 dollars I spent but was cheapest in town. 5 years ago this would be a 30 dollar motel room.

Pleasant stay

Would recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
Staff was very friendly. The bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed have the refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. That was one of the reason I stayed there. Good value. The hotel was in good location for me to visit people and get down town.

Simple but Clean

Would recommend Sat, Jun 21, 2014
The room was simple but clean. This is an old motel, but the staff was friendly and helpful. It was convenient to UNCW where I needed to be, and I didn't have to pay as much as other places.

Money saver

You don't have to spend a lot on a decent motel.

Father's day Weekend

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 16, 2014
The "motel" is very old and ugly, looks cheap. Nothing like the pictures on the website, which were probably taken when the motel was new (a couple of decades ago). The "breakfast" was a disaster. The bed covers were dirty (or stained). The place did not look nor smelled clean. The carpets have not been vacuumed in a while. There was hair on the shower. Paid 2 nights, but only stayed 1 night... Will not recommended...You can find nicer places for the same price.
