Sand Dollar Motel, Atlantic Beach
Very Good8.0
Very simple, Comfortable, clean and great value.
This is an older building and a family run business. It appeared well maintained and though I never saw a human because I checked in late, everything that I needed was left for me in an obvious spot. The room is very basic (which is what I was looking for) and right next to Fort Macon State Park and just a short distance from some fabulous Atlantic Beach restaurants. Though the room was basic, it was clean and the fridge kept drinks very cold which is always a plus! If you are looking to be pampered or want to stay right on the beach, go on and pay a ton more elsewhere, but if you need an easy, safe, comfortable place to rest your bones... this place is an excellent value.

Nice location, but not very nice room
The location of this motel is great. But, that's about it. There was no one at the front desk the whole time we were there. They just left everyone's keys in the mailbox. The room could have definitely been cleaner as well . We found some pills and old cereal on the floor by the couch. The beds were really hard and uncomfortable. One of the people staying several doors down from us woke up with bed bug bites all over them. I didn't have that issue however it was enough to deter me from staying there again.

Cheap, clean, convenient, no frills motel
This room was a good value for what we paid. It was $70 off season for a room that would accommodate my family of 6. It was quiet and convenient (1/2 mile easy walk to the beach and public access). The owner / operator was quick to please and gave me her cell phone upon checkin. When we asked for extra towels, she was happy to oblige. The Wi-Fi was spotty at best, and while there was no smoking in the room, right outside our door was a bench and an ashtray so the smoke smell wafted in easily. Overall positive.
