“Would Never Stay Anywhere Else”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

My husband and I have been staying here for several years - we've never considered staying anywhere else. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Yes, it's not a 5 star resort and if that's what you're looking for stay elsewhere...it's just your normal small beach motel. It always seems to me that the bad reviews come from folks who want the 5 star resort at a motel price - doesn't exist! We love it here, we even booked for next year at check-out!!

Our family has been staying at the Mystic Sea Resort for five years now, we've never had a bad experience. We get all of the repeat guest discounts which add up to 25% off of our stay. They have always been friendly and helpful. We have sent other family members here and they said they will absolutely come back again, as a matter of fact they were amazed at the price they paid for the accommodations and they were not even repeat guest. The hotel is in a very convenient location also, there is a store across the street, ice cream shop next door, put-put and Angelo's are walking distance from the hotel. Another reviewer mentioned they had to park across the street when the hotel parking lot was full, let me tell you parking across the street from June to September is perfect, there are shade trees to park under and it makes the vehicle much cooler in the heat of the day. Every Thursday afternoon they serve their guests hot dogs around the lawn and pool area. As repeat guest we have been invited to eat a thanksgiving meal and stay for a night or two, how many hotels do that? Unless there's a free stay somewhere(and that will never happen) we will be going to The Mystic Sea for the Value and the repeat guest benefits....can't beat it!

On the outside the hotel was not too bad. We were given a room across the street that still didn't look too bad. However, when we got to the room there was a sign on the door that said, "step down." We had an old key on a chain which was hard to open the door with. I almost fell in when I got the door opened. You had to step down to get into the room. It was dirty beside the bed and night stand. The bathroom was a nightmare!! You had to step up then step down to get into the shower. It looks like it used to have a tub but then someone poor a concrete slab over it. The toliet handle had to be held down in order to flush. The man at the front desk when I checked in was not friendly. He did not try to make our stay pleasant whatsoever. We paid for the room then ended up gettting another room at the hotel next door with a much nicer front desk clerk.

We have stayed at Mystic Sea on several occasions and in different room types they offer. This time we tried the Charleston which is across the street. We had a one double bed room. As always the room, grounds and pools were very clean. The front desk staff, their handymen and maid personnel was friendly and very nice. The room is small, probably too small for our taste but that in no way reflects on the hotel. If I had asked for a larger room I could have gotten it. As long as you realize that this is a great Mom & Pop kind of place and not a hugh fancy motel you will be very happy. You want to come to the beach and think you can't afford it? Try Mystic Sea.

and were fully satisfied..Arrived on a whim trip after a 6 hour drive and found their rate to be AS ADVERTISED on their sign..79 dollars...got the last room their and were never expecting the Hilton, but they did a great job ,even offering an extra night to make up for a small glitch in the AC system,which wasnt even a problem! Overall, If you expect what they advertise and offer, then you will be satisfied..If you are one of these idiots demanding perfection,pay 200 a night and stay at the Breakers.We enjoyed it and will be back!
