run down needs over hull

We spent one night here to see the fireworks on July 4th. It's a beach motel so my expectations were low, but at the end of the day I just did not feel safe. The interior has cinderblock walls, an ancient bathroom setup and dirty thin carpet. All of these I could have lived with, but the door did not have a deadbolt lock on it. When we were not in the room, someone could have easily picked the lock with a credit card. When we were inside, there was also a thin chain lock on the top of the door and somesort of wire to place around the door handle. Judging by the couple who checked in before me and the folkd I saw milling about, I did not want to take the risk as a single mom with an 8 year-old. I preturned the key and paid for another room 30 minutes away, the closest room I could find on the holiday weekend.

This is a very old property — I’d guess 1960’s or so — that has not been updated. Plumbing (and showers in particular) were unreliable and in some cases non-functional for the 5 rooms we had. For a non-smoking hotel, one of the rooms had a deep stench of cigarette smoke. We booked this because it was available at the last minute, and not obscenely expensive. But, you get what you pay for, I guess.

Solid value. Rooms were clean and well kept. Staff was couteous and prompt at addressing concerns. I will stay here again.

Great location for the price! Beds were comfortable enough, sheets are a bit rough, but passable. Under 5 minute walk to the beach. A 5 minute drive to the supermarket. Close to Ft. Macon and a bunch of restaurants in the area. Really just a great overall location.

If you are looking for an affordable, clean and quiet place to stay that is a 5 minute walk from the beach, then this is the hotel for you. The gentleman who checked me in was wonderful - there was a weird mix-up with my online booking but he fixed it and got me checked in quickly. The location is also easy to find and convenient to local restaurants. However the room and bathroom are on the small side and there's not a lot of amenities. If you're looking for a resort style stay, you may want to look elsewhere. But if you're like me and you just want to be close to the beach, then this place is perfect.

This place is gross. No curtains for the windows. Carpets are filthy. But, most of all there are cockroaches everywhere. Tge shower was gross. We didn't stay the night because it was so gross and tge owner refused to refund any of my money

Upon checking in, saw a male hanging around with a law enforcement ankle bracelet on. Went to sleep about 10 pm, woke up shortly after midnight to someone shaking the doorknob. Got my gun, sat on edge of bed waiting for a thug to break in. Luck have it, it never happened. Never staying there again!

It was decent- for the price we paid it was good. Not to far from things - within walking distance.
