I was here in March but waited to write my review until things settled down. This is one of my favorite local beach hotels. The rooms and showers are small but everything has been updated in the last 2 years. I need a good tv and cable, WiFi, microwave, fridge, ac and a comfortable bed and I get that here with a great beach across the street( It’s not a highway!) For those who like to walk at the beach like us there is a long concrete walkway for safe walking. If you need something fancy go elsewhere but if you love the beach try here.

We spent three nights with family, total of three rooms. This was our first time at Scarborough Beach Motel and were very happy.
The rooms and grounds were clean and well maintained; it appears the new owners have done work updating the property. It is in a great location across the street from the state beach (quick walk through the parking lot to get to the sand). The atmosphere at night was fun with many families outside but this didn’t seem to cause any excessive noise for those who were turning in early. Rooms had plenty of storage. The showers are very small and there was no tub (not an issue for us, but may be for those with small kids). Our fridge and microwave came in handy but there wasn’t much ‘counter’ space to get breakfast and snacks ready for the kids. My parents’ room had a full kitchenette which seemed clean and well stocked.

Across from beach, easy beach access. Little else to offer. Small room. Small shower. There was no soap. Loud AC unit. A coffee maker in the room would go a long way. Lacks a premium TV cable. (ok, I'm going to the beach, but if it rains...) The beach season price was too much, stay further away and get up early for the beach. Place was fine if it was $125. Paid $199.00 plus taxes,( $228 or so)- expected a little more.

I would NEVER recommend staying at this establishment. While the location is good, you are better off pitching a tent and sleeping on a beach than staying in one of these disgustingly dirty rooms. If you chose to sleep at the beach you would have less sand than we did in our room and we didn't even go to the beach. I stayed here with two friends because we were in town for a wedding. We checked in quickly to get into the room before the wedding, but we weren't able to do a full sweep of the room, or set up our bed. When we returned to the hotel to sleep after midnight we noticed there was no one in the lobby. When we got in the room we noticed a few things: the floor was covered in sand, there was trash in the fridge from previous guests, there was no toilet paper, no paper towel, gum on the wall AND unclean sheets on the bed.

When we went to check out in the morning I told the front desk of our issues expecting that they would give us some sort of discount or refund because that type of service is completely unacceptable. The woman at the desk said "oh we have had a problem with that cleaner" and "yes, the room next door to you also had a similar problem". She didn't offer any sort of compensation aside from "sorry" and she clearly knew this was an issue. I find that completely unacceptable. They should have at least taken off some amount of money for the inconvenience.

When I returned home I reviewed the establishment on Orbitz as that was where the reservation was booked. This hotel had the audacity to respond to me saying that the situation was rectified and that they came to clean the room when we asked! This never occurred as we stayed in room 121 not room 119, who also had an unclean space. I find this incredibly embarrassing for them and think it is utterly disgusting that in a time when cleanliness is so important this hotel could not provide a clean space to stay.

My husband is a 100% permanent and total combat, Vietnam, disabled veteran, and we travel with a service dog. When I attempted to make a reservation at the Scarborough Beach Hotel, I was told I needed to send them an ADA compliance certificate for our dog; according to law, this is illegal. I informed them that what they were asking was unlawful, but that I was willing to send corroborating documentation, and then was told they would be a $75 cleaning fee added to the cost of the room. I can only reason that this is because of our dog. Our service dog is trained, does not bark, and is well behaved. The Scarborough Beach Motel is a disgrace and not a place for those who served and sacrificed their safety and future well-being for their country.

Smell of mold n bleach is so bad we had to leave the door semi-opened during our entire stay. Could not breathe-in, in the room!????

After complaining about no breakfast (was told breakfast was included) n smell they could care less. Poor management! Management's attudite ruined our vacation- pure denial of the the horrific smells. PLEASE DONT BOOK N waste your money!!!!

I’m always nervous about staying at roadside motels, but we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable our room was. Smelled clean, comfortable beds, everything in working order. Location right across from a lovely beach. Would stay here again for sure.

Booked through Expedia but had to cancel 7 days in advance. Hotel policy is 72 hours so should have been no problem. Received confirmation of the cancellation. Also, for some reason, the motel charged me a week before the booking and would not refund. Expedia was no help. The person at the motel told me that despite the cancellation, I was sh*t out of luck and would have to take it up with my credit card company. Scam.

The new owners are a nightmare! They act like they are doing you a favor by overcharging you for the terrible, uncomfortable rooms. We used to stay there under the previous management and it was always a decent place to stay in a great location. Never again!! Watch your bill and good luck getting a comfortable room.

We came into town late in the evening and had made reservations for one night at this hotel. U could tell it was an older establishment but there were several cars in the parking lot. Upon entering our room everything was fine but the smell. I don’t know if it hadn’t been used in a while, or what the smell was exactly, but it was overwhelming. We had to go grab some febreeze and spray the entire room and fabrics to get it to where it didn’t stink so bad. It was like a combination of bleach/dust & a room that was closed up for an extensive time. Otherwise, our room was clean and comfortable for the nights stay.
