Recent guest reviews

Room was clean, comfortable. Had to change rooms due to broken A/C unit. Desk clerk told me that I was not operating the unit correctly. Property needs upgrading. Rooms look to have been recently painted but fixtures were old and some did not work.

Bathtub not clean nor face bowl towels not clean sheets didn't fit bed had to keep attaching all night. Asked to have bathroom cleaned front desk clerk said no maids until 10 am the time I was to check out This is older hotel needs lots of updating

Viewed earlier bad reviews with some trepidation. Our upstairs room was clean and well maintained. No bugs (we looked, hard), no dirt and no mold/mildew evidence/smells. The TV system was new and required a short course in how to use by the competent front desk person. Wireless service is good. Complementary breakfast is typical: fruit, cereal, yogurt for cold; biscuits&gravy, toaster waffles and toast for hot. Efficient heat/AC only runs fan when heating or cooling

My family and i were driving during Tropical storm Julia (NC ---> NY) and due to the weather conditions and flooding we had no choice but to stop and stay here. When i walked into the lobby i knew right then that it wasnt going to be like the comfort suites i just left but i saw their 9.1 health inspection rating and figured for one night id have to trust it. 75.00 for one night (keep in mind my beautiful clean comfort suites room with a clean pool and gym was 99.00/ night) . Went into the room and was greated by the smell of mold . Just a wet musky stench. I took my son to the bathroom and as he sat on the potty i turned and there are HAIRS in the shower bugs on the floor a redish stain on the towel drapped over the tub and the wall of the shower had an odd brown drip pattern down it. So showering wasnt an option nor were bare feet. Also dust covered each inch of the fridge and blinds. Bed time - pulled down the sheets for my son to hop in . Oily stains bloched the sheets. Instinctively I checked the matress for bugs after everything i had witness with in 15 min of being there. We all slept on the top comforter . My skin crawled all night . I slept for maybe 2 hours . Breakfast - Now i just want to throw it out there that i work for a resort and i am the manager of the continental breakfast. I cook everything fresh and make sure each guests expectations are beyond met. . That being said ... Though they bost a good breakfast . I was met with watered down coffee hard muffins defrosted pancakes and eggo waffles and sausage gravy left out to get cold and turn in a bowl.. Check out - I couldnt wait to get out of there . I told the manager about everything she apologized and said she didnt know the rooms were that bad. I wasnt overly pleased that she doesnt take the time to make sure the employees are doing there jobs properly. In conclusion save your money !!!! Sleep in your car anything but staying here.

Our first room was a disaster - spiders on the ceiling and bugs in the bed - YUCK! The second room was better at least as far as no bugs on the ceiling or bed. The tub-shower was so nasty that we didn't use it. The door didn't seal on the side or bottom. Although we had a non-smoking room we had to walk through clouds of smoke to get to it. All in all it was beyond horrible. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone ever!

One of the worst experiences ever. Booked 2 rooms and problems were abundant: A/C in both rooms was broken, Shower in one room didn't work, dead bugs all over the bathrooms, there appeared to be blood on the walls and door in one of the bathrooms and overall cleanliness was horrible. Finally, after waiting a week for a response to my issues I was offered a free nights stay. WHAT!?! As if I would ever stay there again. Numerous phone calls with the GM and she finally offered me 25% off of my total stay. Still waiting for that refund to happen because as of this date, that was three weeks ago. Not holding my breath. Would give negative stars if it were possible. Ownership doesn't care about your comfort or your experience at all. Consider yourself warned, STAY AWAY!

Going to Music, Boat event In Edenton, a 2 day event, planed to spend night so I could enjoy both days, only live 2 hrs. a way. so was looking the cheapest over night, And that's what I got. A clean but ageing motel, I booked a room on Hotels .com rate was $65 + tax the rate of room on back of door was $59. thought they could not charge more then what was posted on door, when I asked about it at the desk, I was told they the signs were very old. Seams the motel was just sold and taken over by new owners. And it showed from desk staff that I met. To am offering in lobby for breakfast lacked something like comment . Here is an Idea For trip advisor, You could be a leader in the booking realm . Why don't you offer seniors a Discount on your site. If you walk in or call in Hotels give a discount for seniors, but if I use Trip Advisor, or, Hotels. com, I am not offered a Seniors rate

Instead of the usual cancellation policy, this hotel requires a 24 hour notice. I called at 8am of the morning of my reservation and was charged $80 for the privilege of cancelling my reservation well in advance of 6pm. What's next, a fee for towels? I told the manager although I will travel often to Edenton in the future, I would not be staying at this hotel. I have other choices.

This hotel was recommended to us by Hampton Inn in Edenton, NC as we where traveling with out pet (dog) and Hampton does not permit pets. Please take a minute to read the other reviews to confirm how bad this hotel is. The place was absolutely filthy with hair in the linen, awful and smelly odor smelling like urine and perspiration. Light switches didn't work and the furniture padding was shot. I walked up to the desk to complain and my concerns fell on deaf ears indicating that this is not anything new the staff has encountered. Long story short...D'ONT EVER STAY HERE, YOU'D BE BETTER OFF CAMPING OUT OR STAYING THE NIGHT IN YOUR VEHICLE.

We were in town for a cycling event and stayed at this motel since accommodations in town were scarce. The room and the property were a bit of a shock. The property is showing its age and there appears to be quite a lot of maintenance that needs to be done. They did have newer flat screen televisions in the rooms, but we did not try them, or the Wi-Fi. I do have to say the room was clean, but the furniture and fixtures well worn. The free breakfast in the morning was adequate and was enough to start our day. All in all, considering the price we paid for the rooms, we couldn't really expect much more.
