I took a motorcycle trip across country and stayed at the cheapest hotels. This hotel was the worst of all! The first room that I was put in had no windows, dust on the a/c, and a filthy shower. I then switched to the room next door which also had no windows and smelled dank and musty. Turns out there...

The price of the room was awful for what you got. We had one double bed and a bunk bed. The Tv went out in the storm at night. The shower wall had packing tape over half of it and you had to be like 4 foot tall to use the shower. There were spiders in the bathroom in each...

I was there with friends in 1982. We mainly wanted a few hours sleep and a shower. Filthy in everyway. Nothing was even OK at all... Couldn't even take a shower because it was only dripping and the water was total rust. We got ripped off. Couldn't sleep. Wasted our time and money. I can't believe health department has not...

I stayed here, and it was fine. No bugs, no grime, just a regular old motel room in a regular old motel. There is a pool, bar, and a crab shack/diner. The owner was nice although a bit crude. The reviews here are from disgruntled middle class people who can't afford a better motel but still expect the comfort inn....

My husband and I stayed here many years ago. After reading the reviews, I see nothing has changed. I could identify with the last review TOTALLY!! We still talk about it after all these years.
