“bait and switch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2006

Booked a "two bedroom suite" on Expedia. Was initially led to a tiny one bed room. After complaining was given a slightly bigger room with two double beds - no bedrooms, no suites. The sheets were moldy and damp. the bathroom gross. STAY AWAY

Although the online picture of the Sea Breeze Inn appears inviting, beware. This inn had absolutely nothing going for it. When we first checked in. our room was not what we had reserved. We requested an extra large room with a king and full size bed. All we got was a king size bed in a cramped size room that had a terrible order. We complained that we were not happy with the room size per our resevation and that the rooom had an order. The second room the gave us was our size request but the oder WAS 10X WORSE. We asked to have our money returned. We received a room credit...that was eaten up unfortunately, by a penalty of $75.00. Do not even think of going there.

With my job I'm constantly on the go, I visit close to one hundred hotels/Inns a year. I've experienced very nice, upscale hotels and I've experienced not so great hotels from all around the country, BUT! I've never had a more terrible experience at any other place in my life, then what I had at Seabreeze.

Its way over priced for what they offer, the showers, the rooms, everything is disgusting. I had that "closed in" feeling while I was in my room. My room had a strong odor of "sweat" when I first walked in. Stonington is a breath-taking area, but if your in town I wouldn't recommend staying overnight here.

This was a terrible place. We paid 119.00 for the night and we would have rather stayed in a tent. The room was not much bigger than a large closet. Decor was terribly tacky. The whole place smelled stale and it felt dirty. The bathroom was barely cleaned and the shower stall had build up on the doors and floor. Yuck!! If you've already booked a night here, try to get a refund . I'm not a picky traveler, so this will show you how bad this place was. Also, the only staff person we saw on our stay was not very friendly!!

do not consider this motel, dirty, 72 hour cancellation policy, owners not nice. Because of the 72 hour cancelation policy we were unable to avoid a one night charge for a horrible room (140.00) that we refused to stay in. Everyone should really take notice of cancellation policies, as even if you checked the room first you will still have to pay for one night even if you don't take the room. Our credit card companies told us we had no recourse as we knew about the 72 hours..so i guess we resort to word of mouth..please pass on
