2/10 Poor

This room rates in the bottom 3 of any motel/hotel room I've stayed in in the last 40 years. The bathroom had mold and dirt around the baseboards, mold at the base of the shower. The room's tile floor had not been mopped in forever. The lamp was rusted and dusty. The window unit AC kicked on and off very loudly. When you stepped into the shower, the bottom gave and the metal collar around the handle had fallen off. This place is a total mess and no one should stay here.

6/10 Good

The hotel staff was very nice. However, the rooms could use some sprucing up. Our sheets were clean but the bedspreads had holes in them.

4/10 Fair

The room was dirty and needs improvements. Sealing fan doesn't work, tv very small, stand tv broken, air condition very loud, bathroom doesn't have any shelfs for toiletries. The room should cost 50$ instead 100$ a night. During middle of the week and off season rates are too high. We were walking around and town was completely empty , no peoples , it was off season. Location is not good you need car . Only plus is locations to beach around 10 minutes walks . No breakfast. Small old motel. For this price we got excellent room ,oceanfront view in Virginia beach day before.
