This is without a doubt THE best budget motel and the first I've ever seen with a 41/2 star rating and I'm giving it a 5!. All I needed was a bedroom and bath but instead I got an apartment with all the comforts of home for a very reasonable price. The rooms were clean as well as the kitchenette...

This place is a little Gem. Super clean, maid service daily. The Staff and owner are very nice, the unit was all we needed. If you are looking for amenities such as a pool, or grills, this is not your place, but who needs that with all of the gorgeous beaches in the area. Having a kitchen saved us a...

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the place is clean, spacious (includes a nice kitchenette) with a separate bedroom. We didn't get in until late and left early the next morning to catch the ferry so we appreciated the fact that the bed and pillows were very comfortable. A Best Buy!!

This little motel is fantastic! Clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. Friendly staff who really take care of their place. Wifi that actually works. It's in a great location, close to both Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Cape Henlopen State Park. Everything we enjoy was just a short drive away. Loved it here! We will be...

If you are looking for the Ritz, this isn't for you! If you're looking for a clean, QUIET place with a friendly staff you will be happy to stay here! The full size fridge is great, the ability to cook on a real life sized stove came in handy when we had 8 inches of rain falling outside! The beds...

There was plenty of space - bedroom is small but separate from the living area and kitchenette. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. The room air conditioner was loud but cooled well and didn't keep us from getting a good night's sleep. Plenty of parking too, right outside the door to your room. I like to...

This was a great place to stay. We spent 2 nights here. The room are very spacious and super clean. Having 2 separate rooms was the best having a toddler. The staff was great and very helpful. If we every return we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for the great hospitality!

Blue Bell, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 6 August 2016

No doubt, definitely needs an update, however the most important aspect is that the room was clean and bed was comfortable. No daily housekeeping, just clean towels, trash emptied and bed made, but what more would you need, you don't clean your bathroom at home every day. Good location, we left the motel around 10 am each day to drive...

Thank you for staying with us. We do provide daily housekeeping between the hours of 11 and 3; however, we typically do not enter the guest's room if the Do Not Disturb sign is placed on the door or the room is occupied. We apologize for any misunderstanding. As you noted, our beds are comfortable, being brand new, having been...

“There was some sort of generator (?) outside which ran all night. It was rather noisy, like a loud air conditioner. It would be best if you could get a room away from that.”

“Heck, there are no bad rooms. There is some traffic noise, during rush hour, but in the evening is is very quiet. I guess, if noise is a problem, you could request a room close to the office. The traffic noise, at night, did not bother me, but they did ask if I wanted to move to a more remote room. These folks do everything possible to make your stay a pleasant one! You will really get a great value for your money.”
