Sherwood Motel2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Clean room, comfortable bed. Fooled us when we drove up, satisfied when we awoke. Prepared us for the long day we had ahead of us. Basic, cheap, perfect. Some would say 'Priceless' Close to eats, not so close to shopping.
We stayed one night here, and thought it was going to be lousy, because it was so much less than other hotels, but when we got there, they had saved our reservation and everything. We'll definately come back again.
A room with microwave and small refrigerator that meets the basic needs of a traveler. We just needed a bed for 1 night on our way to the beach and found this motel. We were pleasantly surprised at the comfort of the beds and the shower pressure. Affordable and clean rooms with helpful front desk staff. I would recommend to anyone needing a clean bed for an overnight stop
Much better than the usual cheap fare. Family that takes care of the desk is nice and helpful, place is very safe with all of the parking lot facing major road. Also clean and neat. This is a cheap motel and absolutely not luxurious - if you want bells and whistles pay more. But if you want a good deal in a location close to lots of restaurants, gas stations, etc., this is the place. Note that road noise can be loud; light sleepers should bring ear plugs.
If you're just looking for a clean place to sleep and shower then this is the place. If you expect much more then pay much more to stay at a fancier hotel. We got a clean place to rest and watch tv for the night and saved some $$. I would stay again. Rooms have free wifi and mini-fridge with microwave. No pool, no breakfast, which will save you money.
I booked a room on the road and was really worried because it was so cheap. The room was clean and that's all i care about no bells and whistles, mini fridge and microwave, but I would prefer to stay here and bring my own iron, coffee maker etc.! When I travel the hotel is a place to sleep & shower, not the destination!
After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit worried about staying at the Sherwood, but my fears were unfounded. At check in, I was greeted warmly and desk clerk offered suggestions to area attractions. The motel is not new or trendy, but my room was very clean and comfortable.There is not a coffee maker in the room, but coffee is available in the office ! On my next visit to the area, I will stay in this family owned motel !
Travelers who don't frequent trip advisor will probably end up here because it is cheap but nasty. Desperate folks will get shafted. I was there for 2 weeks working for the place. Normally the Sherwood gets $200.00 per week for rent. I worked as an electrician and a HVAC tech for an agreed fee of $10.00/hr for 25 hrs in lire of rent. That makes me paying $250.00 per week. When I realized the owner was unscrupulous I said I was leaving giving notice. The overtime pay rate after 50 hrs equaled min. wage for the incorrect hours. This operator is a scam artist. He should be investigated by the IRS and The Federal Bureau of Wage and Hour. In addition, the rooms are filthy, mold ridden, appliances don't work, and the constant sound of military jets performing landing and takeoffs, despite being patriotically comforting, at Cherry Point Navel Air Station, is deafening. Spend a little more money for a better nights sleep and better amenities in New Bern, Morehead or elsewhere. DO NOT SUPPORT THE SHERWOOD MOTEL!!!!
But it's a great dive. Spent a week in a ground floor cinderblock room with a noisy air-conditioner and actually enjoyed the stay. Decent rates, mini-fridge and micro-wave, nice employees and easy access to local restaurants and attractions. Great half-way point between Morehead City and New Bern. Although the place is light on ambiance (the free coffee was nice) the Sherwood is heavy on functionality.
Tried two different rooms, all had a distinct odor of mildew and other biological miscelli that assault you in the face as soon as you open the door. Staff claimed not to notice, possibly have no ability to smell. Insects were attracted to my room, had to buy my own fly strips and stomp a roach from entering my bed. AC unit is loud and has approximate temperature ratings of 'cold' and 'arctic blast,' with a single fan speed of 'gale force.' On the plus side, anyone with tinnitus like myself will be entirely unable to hear it over the ChillMaster 500000 next to your bed. Had to request a change of the lights above the sink as none of them worked, and the shower drain would back up slightly at times, revealing to us a Tangle Monster of previous tenants' hair. Someone decided to use the sink drain as a trashcan, which the management was apparently unable to remedy. If my car seat laid down completely flat, I would have flipped a coin to decide whether I stayed at this place for in my vehicle. I wish I had taken pictures of everything.
