When you stay in a hotel you expect a certain amount of service for your dollar. The Cutty Sark is a very cute little motel with small kitchenettes in the room. The rooms are sparsely furnished and look like they're from 1960, but they are clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic, literally across the street from the beach.

I stayed here this past weekend and it was much nicer than I expected. The room was a good size and clean once we got in. Originally I was told that there wasn't a room with a balcony available but once I came to check in, we were given room 2. Even though there was a condo in front of...

We will definitley be back!! Perfect for families on a budget! Great location too! Right next to the beach, but not smack in the middle of all of the crowds. But not too far away either. We had the perfect (budget friendly) vacation!!!!! Next time we would like to check out one of their cottages!

May 30 - June 3 I vacationed at Cutty Sark back in 1997 with my family when I was younger. We stayed in the Cottage on the Corner of Atlantic and 37th St., definitely a vacation to remember and thought it was worth revisiting. This time we decided to stay in a Efficiency Room because it was just 2 of...

This is a real little gem of a hotel/motel. If you're used to luxury accomodations, this might not suit you, but if you enjoy something a bit more intimate, this is the place.

The hotel is a little dated but it was very clean and had everything you would need to stay a few days (stove, microwave, toaster, pots/pans, silverware, refrigerator), The owners were very nice and were willing to accommodate to our needs and had great recommendations of where to go and what to do. It was worth staying here rather than...

Being on a budget, we were looking for something within the $100 a night range close to the beach. This MOTEL is a 30 second walk to the boardwalk.

Took a while to write this review. My family was to stay in late August before school started check-in on Thursday and out Sunday. Irene came blasting through Friday and Saturday.
