Location and value
outdated and worn
Smelled musty Could hardly wash our hair water pressure was non existent
location, price, people, can't wait to go back our new favorite place
It's very close to the beach, nightlife etc. also very affordable for vacationers on a budget. Not the nicest but okay as we did not plan to spend much time in our room.
The hotel is out dated and kind if dingy. They only allow parking for one vehicle per room.
The room was old and out-dated. The air conditioning doesn't work very well. The shower barely drained, so I showered in a pool of water. You can't sit on the toilet if you are over 4 feet tall, it is much too cramped. I am not sure who thought that was ok. My bed was dirty - there was some unidentifiable stuff in my sheets (looked like red pepper flakes). The beds were not comfortable and were very old. The hotel in general needs a LOT of updating. I will not return.
Proximity to the beach; friendliness of front desk; fact that pets ARE allowed!;beds are quite comfortable; getting extra towels was nice; letting us check a little early since room was cleaned; we have been going there for several years now, as we don't like to board our dogs.
Shower/tub in less than desirable condition; musty odor; somewhat noisy neighbors above us
First and foremost the closeness to the beach. Spaciousness of the rooms.
The way the toilet was positioned. The rooms were a little damp (possibly the AC units needs cleaning/filters?).
Location and pet friendliness.
WiFi was spotty.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great.
The room was very dated. The bathroom was very old and needs work. The room smelled very musty.
not as close to the beach as picture makes it seem it's not steps to the beach it's a block to the beach
Filthy. Bed felt like it was 40 years old. Bathroom was foul, bath tub had hair in it. The room smelled moldy and the air conditioning only made it worse. We dropped off our stuff went to the beach for the day then packed up and went home.
short walk to beach, recently improved exterior makes the place look inviting
musty interior walls, thin ceiling & walls, toilet space would make a commuter airline plane proud.
The only positives I can give this place is the location and the staff. Each time I had any interaction with the staff they were very friendly and accomodating.
I can not even begin to describe the horrible smell the room had. It smelt like mildew and mold. We actually used car vent clip airfresheners in the air conditoning to try and mask the smell. You can tell the room is cleaned as best as the housekeepers can do, but unless they are equipped with a magic wand there is not much that can be done.
The walls has water damage and the floor felt wet. The toilet didn't flush and the shower and sink didn't drain. They have to have their own security guard monitor the parking lot and hotel on weekends because of how much nasty stuff goes on here, including people peeing on cars parked below from the third floor balcony.
Proximity to Rehoboth Beach was good
This motel was terrible! The cleanliness was extremely poor. Mold & mildew could be seen and smelled everywhere, from the carpets to the bathroom walls, shower & tub. The bathroom sink was run down, old and dirty. The ventilation was poor as well. After 1/2 hour of checking in, I was forced to check out & leave for another hotel; I was clearly allergic to the unhealthy conditions. Even though I lost out on more $$ than it was worth, it was worth my family's health! I defintely would not recommend this motel! It needs to be shut down and have major renovations done--especially based on the amount of money charged to stay there...
Absolutely nothing about the motel but the beach was beautiful .
The location is great walking distance to a lot of things. Easy access to rehobeth.
The rooms are run down . The curtains were falling off the rod. The bathroom had flaking paint on the sink and tub. There was mold in the shower curtain hangers .
We enjoyed the location of the hotel because it was very close to the beach which made it very convenient for us.
I did not appreciate the housekeeping staff not cleaning our room on day 2 of the trip without any explanation or remorse for not completing their job.
Location, ease of check in, parking
The location was excellent!
The room felt damp. The carpets were so old and dirty we felt like we needed shoes on the whole time we were in our room. It smelled of mildew probably due to the dampness.
It was clean but the beds were terrible and the AC didn't work, making it very uncomfortable.
I loved the fact that u can walk to the beach and restaurants.
The wifi connection didn't work, and the staff never cleaned our room
Great location, friendly staff
The building and room needed updating. The room seemed humid and had a slight odor at times.
