Sea Hawk Motel2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed for four nights. Sea Hawk is an older building but the rooms have been remodeled which includes laminate flooring. First night, we were in an oceanVIEW room. It was clean and everything worked but we decided to move to oceanfront which was also clean and everything worked. Sitting in bed In the oceanfront room, the swimming pool was a few feet to the left and the ocean was a few yards to the right. We could see the beach/ocean from our room and we were on the ground floor. AWESOME. We appreciated having our two small dogs with us. The front-desk man was friendly and accommodating. The cleaning staff asked if there was anything we needed.
Room acceptable, full of cameras, seems paranoid,owner acts like a repo man, unpleasant. Asked for 100.00 for event of damages. Took four dawn months and phones calls ,and rude in addition. Then after cancelling reservation it took another 4 months With the help of Booking.com to get money back. There is a habit there to be dishonest Also I believe that that kind of character is pretty intolerant , prown to anger and impatience. Wrong people .
The plus side to this hotel is its clean, the manager seemed nice to me, it was pet friendly and as I stated in the title, the beach was right there. The downsides are that the cleanup crew need to make sure all the drawers are cleaned out after every visitor. We found some Aleve tablets in there and a bag of Doritos. Also, there is no wifi. If you are trying to get away from everything, this is the place to do it because even the reception for data isn't good until you step away from the hotel. It was quiet, people didn't bother you and my husband found it acceptable. I believe they will be charging a pet fee but since it wasn't on my paperwork and I wasn't aware, they let it go.
I want my money back. The rooms are disgusted . The manager is rude. The WiFi is not free. The manager acts he doesn’t want to be bothered. And I just want a partial refund. And false advertisement I was supposed to have a ocean and I do not have a ocean view
Stayed 2 nights here for spring break before heading to Charleston, can’t beat the prices compared to others in the area and it was clean and oceanfront. 2 beds, bathroom, full size fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Everyone was very friendly. We would stay again.
This was our first time staying here and we were a little skeptical, but the room had just been renovated and was very nice and affordable. The bathroom was nicely updated, but the shower could have used more water pressure. I think because the shower head was so high up may be one reason the pressure was lacking. The hot water never ran out though. The beds were firm and very comfortable. We always bring our own flannel sheets during the cool season, but their sheets were very nice. They had plenty of clean, soft pillows and the towels were pretty nice. There is a hair dryer and shampoo, conditioner, soap and body wash. The kitchenette was nice but the refrigerator would occasionally make a loud noise that made it hard to hear the tv. The tv was a nice, big flat screen. The view from the oceanfront rooms were fantastic. The beach is right there. I enjoyed chatting with Fred and the owner Raj was really nice. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. I hope to come back to stay here next year. It has everything we need and is pet friendly, which is my #1 priority.
We have been staying at the Sea Hawk spring and fall for about ten days a visit for many years. Each time we return it is a little better than when we left previously. The new remodel and upgrades are nicely done and a wonderful improvement. The staff has always been and continues to be excellent (a big shoutout to Ronnie!) Good room, good price and very close to the beach what more can you ask for? Mr & Mrs JC Jamesville NY.
It's hard to find anything good to say, after the very FIRST thing I saw when I stepped into my room was a GIANT BUG. In promotional pictures, this place looks clean, bright and airy. In reality, most of the rooms are dark, because to have any light from outside, you have to open the curtain to expose your bedroom to people walking by the open corridor 6 feet from the bed. The entire property was cluttered with sand bags, although there was no chance of needing them at the time of my visit. They must be part of the decor now. My room wasn't the cleanest, and a dirty towel from the previous guest remained in the bathroom for the duration of my stay. Air conditioner grille was dirty. Air conditioner could barely cool the room, in part because the door to the outside is poorly sealed, and there is room for a small rodent to get in under the door. Similarly, the space around the air conditioner is not sealed. Even on the second floor, moisture must be an ongoing problem...they have moisture collection devices the the open closet and hanging on the lamp. Plenty of hot water and water pressure was fine. TV and channel selection was excellent. Wi-fi was free, but unreliable and slow. Some of the people hanging around made me feel unsafe. It wasn't clear if they were guests or if they were just hanging around. I didn't feel safe parking my car there, and I worried about my room being broken into while I was out. I was worried about getting bugs in my luggage to take home with me. Other reviewers have commented on the unpleasant feel of sand on the fake wood floor...it really is awful, and my feet got dirty just walking back and forth to the bathroom. One night about 2 am there was a series of gunshots (or maybe some kind of fireworks or firecrackers that sounded exactly like gunshots). Sounded like it was right in the parking lot outside my room. If I had known what I was walking into, I would have stayed home. This place was inexpensive and not worth it. I have stayed at worse places, but only twice, and definitely not on purpose.
I struck gold when I found this pet friendly motel in 2013. I have been back every year since and will continue to come back every year. I brought all of my kitchen essentials with me this year but to my delight I discovered they have everything except pots and pans so next year I can travel a little more lightly. I have read many of the reviews on the ocean front rooms and the one thing many have in common is the oven. well ladies and gentlemen this is a compact stove so the oven basicly works more like a toaster oven. work with it or bring a toaster oven with you like I did. When I stay in the regular rooms I bring an electric double burner with me to cook on because I just don't use microwaves. This is not a condo it is a motel so if you desire the amenities of a condo then you need to go to a condo not a motel. I can't wait to come again next year. 118
The Sea Hawk Staff were wonderful. The motel is really on the beach! The rooms are comfortable, clean, affordable with a microwave and fridge. Staying right on the beach is a real plus and peaceful. The bathroom remodel is the only drawback it left something to be desired-more space for hanging towels, level floor. Overall this is a very good place!
