We needed a last minute booking for family related reasons and this was available. The property is under new ownership/management. The owner/manager checked us in personally; he was perfectly friendly and polite and made us feel welcome. He has a spare Pack n' Play for those who need it! (We didn't, but it's a nice gesture for guests.)

The rooms are nothing special, but they are clean and serviceable. The biggest drawback is the lack of black out curtains. As the hotel is right on the road, it makes it a bit bright at night. The pool is clean and well maintained. The pier is about a 20 minute walk away or a two minute drive and there is a convenience store close by. This is an easy place to stay for a few nights.

We arrived a little early and had to wait, but Miles and the staff were so extremely helpful that we didn't mind. Had a wonderful chat with JoAnn (sp) who was finishing cleaning our cabin. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to OOB in the future. The linens were changed every day, new towels, beds made and shampoos and soaps replenished. We had a fridge, a microwave, all the dishes we needed and the AC worked perfectly. We were able to leave our car and walk to all the attractions which made moving around OOB all the easier, especially in the summer. As a child I spent many days at OOB and I must say that this location, combined with the kindness of the staff, made our family's experience excellent. We even had a fire in our backyard fire pit late one evening. If you are looking for luxury then this place may not be for you (I don't know about the motel rooms), but for our family it was the perfect location with just the right amount of amenities to serve our needs. Thank you to Miles and his staff for making our stay one of the most enjoyable we have spent since moving out-of-state.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin #6. Cozy and comfortable.

Awful! The smell, dirty carpets, stained towels, itchy bedding, rusty ceiling, shower that didn't work and a malfunctioning door to the bathroom which was the size of a closet. On their counter there is a note with their pricing indicating rates starting at $39 per night. There is some fine print that rates in the summer are more than double.... try triple! $180 for the worst experience we have ever had in any form of accommodation.

I was disgusted upon arrival but my husband insisted we stay and tried to tell me it wasn't THAT bad but early in the morning, not sleeping because the walls were so thin and the beds were so uncomfortable, he agreed.

We were told that morning coffee was available at 6am. The ONE good thing we were hoping for and when we went there, there was a sign on the door to call a cell number. This was the same thing we experienced upon arrival. When we were able to get coffee the front desk girl, although very pleasant, didn't understand how much of a issue it was. When checking out, we met Myles (Owner/Manager) who, in his eyes, wanted to make things right by fixing the shower. He didn't seem to understand even when it was brought directly to his attention that we over paid for a place to sleep and a shower/bath area but we didn't get what we paid for and that the only way to remedy the situation would be some form of renumeration. Offering to fix something upon check out it not acceptable. Things need to be in appropriate order upon arrival.

The site is completely unacceptable. Do not stay here.

Pros: Walk was convenient to the beach and cottage was quiet. That's about it.

Cons: The Mattress was more stiff than a sheet of plywood. Sleeping on the floor would have been a better option.The kitchenette we were promised did not exist in our cottage. The AC unit was under-powered, so the cottage always had an uncomfortable muggy feeling to it. Also, because of the AC, we chose to sleep on the futon that was in the kitchen. While it was more comfortable than the bed, it certainly wasn't a restful sleep.

Our cottage was behind the office in was appeared to be a construction zone. Not exactly quaint. Our bathroom didn't have a sink and was barely big enough for the door to open. Any smaller and the door would have hit the toilet. The only ventilation the bathroom had was a difficult to open window. Our shower stall looked like its best days were far behind it. The enamel was half-gone exposing the metal on the floor and around the drain.
The quality of the bathroom extended out to the rest of the cottage, which to me, looked like a retrofitted extra-large shed that you could buy from Home Depot. The floors looked hastily laid down, with gaps between the ties, electrical quickly modded in for lights and plugs. I understand fully that for what we spent to stay 3 nights here would have been the price to stay 1 night in a high end hotel. However, that's no excuse to provide barely passable accommodations. I have doubts that some of what I saw was even legal.
Service was also an issue, and this really bothered us. We came back after a day at the beach and checking out the town to discover that the staff had came to our cottage to do whatever they do, and left the door open. All I had to do to open the door was to barely touch the door. Anybody could have walked right in at any time. We were very uncomfortable with this to say the least. Also, the staff never left any notice of what time they come around, so we had no idea how long they cottage was completely unsecured. We ended up leaving a night early just so we wouldn't have to endure sleeping there any longer.

In a nutshell: No Kitchenette as promised, hot muggy room, stiffer than concrete bed, tiny and unventilated bathroom, and an insecure feeling knowing the door is unlocked all day. We will not be staying at the Pine View Lodge again.

Room Tip: Spend a little more and find somewhere else.

We pulled into what we thought was the entrance to the office and drove through a very rough looking area with cabins. I was immediately uncomfortable and disappointed, It was hard to find out where the office was at first since the property is split up half on one side of the street half on the other but we found it across the street from where we were. When we checked in the owner seemed very nice, gave us the key, the code to the free WIFI, offered us free coffee. He did mention that he was doing some "property maintenance" throughout the area and that they would be working on it throughout the week which had me concerned right away, it was a vacation after all, last thing we needed was someone working outside our cabin. We pulled around to where our cabin was and became even more concerned with the tiny sandy driveway that doubled as the picnic area directly next to the road and a couple of scattered grills. the property was completely dug up and looked terrible, I understand people need to do property maintenance but as paying customers we should have been informed that it was going to be like this and unsafe since we have a 1 1/2 year old that likes to walk around and play outside. We went to our cabin which was on the main, noisy and busy road, again dangerous for a 1 1/2 year old, we walked in to bunk beds in the living room no couch, no kitchen just a small sink and a hotplate, locks on the door left a lot to be desired I mean they had sliding locks you would find on a bathroom stall. It wasn't dirty but it wasn't what was advertised on the website. There was a cut through next to our cabin that people were using and looking into our windows, the pool was across the street, again we have a young child, I didn't want to have to walk with him across the road every time to use the pool and there was no grounds what so ever where we could play outside. Our deck on the back of the cabin where we can sit outside and enjoy the day had a great view of the busy, main road, just what we want to see on vacation cars whipping by. I was so upset with the false advertising and uncomfortable with the area and the fact that my toddler had no where to go outside and it was plain unsafe that me and my husband actually went and found another place to stay that day!!! We would never come back.
