You really get what you pay for!

The sheets were dirty and with hairs. They got us new sheets. We booked a king bed, they had overbooked the king bed rooms and put us in a double bed room. The internet did not work most of the time. Everything else was fine.

The picture of the hotel is deceiving

The front desk reception is polite but cold. The pillows are tiny and worse than cushions. The bath room is very tiny. Every night, there were groups of people partying in the parking lot (back of a truck) or staircase. There seems to be long term rental residents as well.

beach getaway

Was looking for a place by Chesapeake Beach. (This was only 6minutes away)--The front desk clerk printed out directions for me, which was great! All of the staff was very helpful and friendly. The phone didn't work, bathroom door looked like it had been kicked in as the lock was ripped back, but other than that was clean. Had a nice, clean pool (although it was small). Only problem was there were quite a few people hanging outside on the balcony and being loud when the kids were trying to sleep, and if the phone had worked, I could have called the front desk. Breakfast wasn't much to brag about, but it was free, so can't complain. Overall, good experience. Would go back if other options were not available.

Gets the job done!

Not a chain hotel, so limited by the owners willingness to fork up money to improve it. The T.V.s were very old and outdated. The same comprable LCD tv can be upgraded for about $300 per room. A HUGE upgrade for a tiny price! The hotel was conveniently located and has a shuttle which wasn't listed as an amenity. The coninental breakfast needs improvement. The staff was very friendly which made the stay at the hotel worth it. Bang for the buck...pretty good!

Weekend Family Getaway

Won't recommend or choose again. It worked while we were there for those 2 days, but it is something like one of those cheap hotels that a person choose because they are too tired to continue to drive. Not recommending and probably would not visit again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There are plenty of food choices on this strip, most of them you have to U-turn or turn at the light to get to. I found it more convenient to shop on Military Hwy.

was not impressed

The room was o.k. The bathtub was a little nasty. The toilet splashed water out of the bowl when flushed. The front door to the room had a large gap and allowed air, light and noise in. And it only had about a 1/4 inch of the door lock bolt in the hole to lock the door. Not very secure.
