My husband and I went on a mini getaway without our son, hoping for alone time. The room was so small a prisoner would feel uncomfortable. The bathroom was prison worthy. The faucet in the shower became so hot that we had to use a towel to turn off the shower. I understand it's the beach, but there was sand...

Everyone seems to be giving this place a hard time, but I found nothing critically wrong with it. The price was fair, the location was amazing, the staff was friendly enough, and the room was clean. They even provide you with a cone to save your parking spot which was awesome. My only complaint was the lack of a garbage...

To the complainant above "Stole Our Money" they left out the truth. That they were told to move vehicle. At check-in it clearly states no unregistered vehicles or guest allowed on property. Also did not say that they stole a parking pass off another vehicle on the lot and ripped off the information on the bottom and put on their...

Room and bathroom was very small, but very clean. Receptionist was very helpful and knowledgeable of restaurants in the area as well. Parking was adequate. My fiance is an exterminator and there were no bugs to be found in the room. We will gladly stay here again.

I stayed for one night last week (Wednesday). I think this was my 4th or 5th stay at this motel. It meets my needs perfectly as I am not looking for anything fancy. I just want a basic clean inexpensive room to take a shower and sleep. I live in the Annapolis area so when I go to the ocean...

Couldn't check in till 4 right when the manager leaves so she doesn't have to deal with the complaints. She leaves kids to deal with customers. Though I could barely fit in the room I found mold, a dehumidifier, bugs, a used razor on our towels, a used a tip and oh yeah a nose ring. Checked right out. DO...

Upon arrival to this motel check in was pleasant but that was the first and last pleasant experience. The first room they gave me had a bad breaker and the power went out ever 5 minutes. Then they moved us to another room which was even small, something I didn't think was possible. The second room on day two had...

The Suntan Motel is older style Motel and we are not responsible for any cable issues that may occur nor can we be responsible for any breakers that may get blown due to some of our guests bringing in their own electronic devices such as microwaves, grills etc... We have done our best to check out any electrical breaker problems...

I do apologize for any inconvenience this guest may have through because the guest family did not want to stay more than two nights but we do have minimums set for event and holiday weekends. The guests rooms were not cancelled by mistake, they had only one room booked and there was a three night minimum, we also tried calling...
