I think this placed wised up after horrible 5 year old reviews. No bugs, clean pool, clean room. It's very convenient to the beach and on shore activities as well as dining. Value priced and modest accomodations, and, as it is near the beach, I guess you get what you pay for. Overall better than expected. Next time, though, I...

This was our 3rd year staying at Dry Dock. The first two years were mediocre, at best, but the location and price was hard to beat, so we returned for our 3rd Summer vacation. This year was atrocious. We had a room that was completely filthy. The bed was half-made, the bathroom was deplorable (dirty tub, a dirty towel in...

We have stayed at dry dock for several years now and we love it. The staff is nice and friendly, so are the owners. We stay for a week and they always give us a good deal and make us feel welcome. Even my 7 year old grandson loves to stay there.

Cheap place to stay and walk down the street to public beach access. We did find bugs. The ac was a unit in the wall...old school and the heat was an electric heater screwed to the wall. Laundry facilities were poor. Do not recommend and we will not return.

Ronnie and Debbie are absolutely amazing. We needed accommodations for out of town guests to my son's wedding. They offered to provide a discount if we rented several rooms. This was during the off season, so I am sure it would be a help to them in a less popular travel time. They in turn made offer to help us!...

My husband and I took my sister and her son from the Midwest to the beach and this was one of the only places that didn't require a week stay during peak season before July 4th. Good price and great friendly staff. The A.C. window unit definitely needed upgraded. We slept in the bed near the door/window and both woke...

Although this hotel is dated, the staff is very good, the room was clean and has a frig, microwave and nice wardrobe cabinets for stowing luggage and clothes. The floors are tile and easy to keep clean. The room has good sound proofing. It is close to the board walk and many shops and places to eat. The beach is...

Small place, not fancy, but just what we needed for a bargain. Three minute walk to the beach. Ice cream and restaurants and drinks within a five minute walking distance. Shared balcony with chairs outside to enjoy our morning coffee.The cleaning staff found my cell phone right outside the room and picked it up, saved it at the front desk...
