I knew this was a budget motel when I reserved a room. I have no problem with the accommodations because I did not want to spend $500 per night. I went to Marathon for the 7-Mile Bridge Run and made my reservation through an online reservation service for 2 nights 2 months in advance. The week of the race I...

If you're looking for a cheap place that's older but clean, look no further. It's definitely dated, but the sheets were fresh, the bathroom was clean, and we had a separate room for the kitchen/living area. If you're looking for luxury, go elsewhere, but this place is nice if you're on a budget and not afraid of the older mom-and-pop...

This makes the 3rd time staying at the Kingsail. Staff top notch...from the ladies at the front desk to the cleaning staff...always smiling and ready to answer questions and help any way they can. Rooms are a bit outdated, but always clean. We were remembered from our last visit by the lady at the front desk and I'm so sad...

(Stayed in room 114 one of the smallest rooms) For the small amount of money paid, (189.00) this was a lot more than I expected. I stayed with my two 10 year old boys and husband and we were very comfortable. If you are planning anything more than 2 nights its not really spacious enough in the smaller rooms. While...

The place is needs to be bulldozed and rebuilt. I agree with the few other 1 star reviews.The "Marina" or "beach access" is full of very stinky rotting weeds. The smell comes to the yard and patio. No security - interior grade outside door with non-working deadbolt. Dirty - stained sheets, everything generally dirty. Electric wiring is for 2 pin...

One corner had a very small refrig, with a small microwave on top, and thiey put the coffee maker on top of that Bed was OK, You could not skin...

This place is gross!!! Run down, rooms are dirty, holes in furniture, A/C units are loud and it smells like urine outside near stairs. Staff were VERY rude and hung up phone on my husband when he called to complain. I would recommend sleeping in your car before staying in this place.

The place is a dump. No security - interior grade outside door with non-working deadbolt. Dirty - stained sheets, mold/mildew in the bathroom, dirty fan blades, generally dirty. Falsely advertised, not a 2 bedroom suite, as listed/booked on Hotels.com. The place was so disgusting that we simply couldn't stay there. We checked in about 9 PM on February 21st, 2017,...

Its ok, only 4 bugs, noisy but not worth $200/night at all. Wish I would have chosen else where. I don't mind staying at budget hotels either but I'd like half the money back. Oh well, live and learn. I wouldn't refer anyone there or stay there again
