    You are NOT getting what’s advertised on Hotels.co

    The room was absolutely disgusting. Dirty stained towels, sheets, pillows. Food trash under beds. The photos shown on hotels.com are not the same photos of this motel. We only stayed cause we could not find anything with availability. We talked to manager on duty about cleanliness he said sorry this is all we have and it’s not a “wedding dress” not sure what he meant about that. People on balconies partying all night. We called desk several times and no answer. We will NEVER stay here again and I can’t believe it was $180 for this hell hole. Another guest was telling us they were dooped by the fake photos! I will add my review to Yelp. Hotel needs a major upgrade.

    BAD EXPERIENCE

    My daughter and I checked in and the man at the front desk seemed a little off. He ended up charging me twice and said the money he refunded should go back right away, but it didn’t! We took all of our stuff to the room and immediately left because we were trying to catch a couple of places before they closed. When we got back, there was no parking and the same man that checked us in parked us at an undesignated parking spot and I’m sure people who were turning in could have hit my car. When we got to the room we decided to lay down for a bit before we left for dinner. However, when we rolled back the covers, there was hair on the sheets and a bug! We checked the other bed and same thing. I went out to tell the man how disgusting it was and we didn’t feel comfortable. He was very rude and said it’s not his fault and it’s not his hair. He said there is nothing he can do but give us a new pillow. I went on to tell him it was gross and I wanted a refund because I was not going to be staying there. He laughed and said “Thats not how this business works.” He seems very unconcerned of how we felt. We left the hotel right after and found somewhere else to stay. I would not recommend ever staying here as it was disgusting! You would think they would care more about their customers but they don’t !

    Dirty old stunk would never stay again and no one around to do anything for you. Horrible stay. False advertisement on hotel.

    Shores Inn

    Hotels.com should not recommend this place. It’s old, decrepit and, although they had at the door a sign for the maid to clean up, she never showed up. I told them that the hotel was paid for two nights and they asked for a credit card for incidentals. Are they kidding? What incidentals? They have nothing. Not a place I would ever go again.

    Very poor

    Definitely not what we paid for. Rooms are old and not updated at all, Beds are uncomfortable with no A/C. There were flies all over the bathroom and main room. The only good thing is the location. The room had an old, dusty smell to it. We didnt even feel comfortable getting under the covers to sleep.. It was more of a camping experience than staying at a clean motel/hotel. Just because they are in a prime location does not justify the high rates when they do not reach the bare minimum of cleanliness (especially in the middle of a pandemic). We were not comfortable or felt safe, and had a horrible night sleep on top of spring mattress beds that squeeked with every small move made.. For the rates we paid, we expected at the bare minimum a comfortable bed.. This place is to pricy for what you get. The pictures online do NOT represent the actual property.

    Very unsatisfied

    The hotel ad claims that theres a beachfront room but thats not true. Theres homes between the hotel and the sand. Also there were no air conditioning systems in the rooms just a small fan that barely stirred the air directly in front of it.

    This place was very runs down, didn’t see a single room with an ocean view. Definitely looks better on paper. It was reasonably clean, no air conditioning though.

    Great area - be sure to do your homework first.

    I should have done more homework on this place. It is rough at best. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms is were the work is needed. Stained sheets, missing screens, torn screens, weathered decks and stairs. Very outdated. Limited parking. But that is on me for not fully reading the reviews and just seeing the pictures of the rooms opening up to the beach. Oh wait- those pictures of the room on the beach are from another property they own actually on the beach. Not from the motel were the reservations are. The motel is 1 block away from the beach. So truly that was our only issue that we could complain about. Great beach, nice area. Please update the pictures.

    You don’t get what you pay for.

    This is a good place to go if you’re a heavy smoker. Rooms say smoke free but when you have to have the windows open because of no a/c, all the smoke blows in your room. There isn’t a smoking area away from the motel. The furniture was very dirty. Very out dated. The chair was probably 20 years old and never been cleaned. I had no towels and a missing battery to the remote to start. Have to walk down to the office because there is no phone in your room to call the front desk. The shower pressure was very low. Long showers to rinse all the soap off. Toilet was wobbling and tub was filthy. I honestly thought I could get covid staying in this place.
