We were disappointed by our Motorcourt cottage. We had originally chosen #3 and got a phone call a few days before arriving to let us know they had to move us to another one due to mechanical issues in the one we had originally selected.
Upon arrival we were faced with several issues.
1- The room had a serious moldy smell. Very strong and constant, despite air circulation with door open and fans on. My husband's allergies were thru the roof while in the room.
2- The bathroom (of which you cannot see ANY pictures on the website) is EXTREMELY small. The toilet is practically on the shower and there are 3 steps up to get to the bathroom door. The final step is literally the toilet.
3- Even though the room appeared to be throughly cleaned, the bed cover had some stains, and one of the robes in the entry closet was used and had not been replaced. After confronting the 'room inspector' the next morning she said she would replace them. Never happened. They took both robes and we never got any after that.
4- We had to call for cleaning service the first day....it was 3:30pm and nobody had come to clean the room. Had to call and a man showed up at the door 10 minutes to 4pm saying "you requested maid service"??? Huh??? It wasn't a request...it was included in my rate.
5- They had a seaside bag that they give away with mugs and some other things. The bag was very dirty and come to find out as I was washing them before use that I cut my finger with the bottom tip of a screw! The mugs have a screw at the bottom and it when in too far and pierced the inside of the mug. WOW.
6- The price paid for this is definitely not adequate for what you get...not to mention the fact (as other reviewers do) that the bed is sideways and one person has to crawl over the other to get out of the bed...there are no 'usable' night tables, light definitely lacks and the AC didn't seem to cool enough.
Seaside is a beautiful place, the location is phenomenal and the places to eat and shop and superb...BUT...Seaside is NOT the only property along 30A, there are soooo many more to consider that for the money we paid, I'm sure we'll find something better next time.
