Like most reviewers I chose the Sun Deck Motel because of the rave reviews. I agree with most reviewers that if I had not had such a bad experience it would have been a great value. If I had written the review immediately upon my return home I probably would not be so gracious about my review. In short, the rooms do not have safes and we experienced theft during our stay. The theft was not just something we left out exposed. What was taken was tucked inside a drawer which means they had to actually rummage through our belongings to uncover what was stolen. The owners wife admitted during our stay that an employee was the guilty party but did not want us to discuss the incident with her husband. We were traveling with others and felt very fearful after we were informed, knowing that it was a person who worked at the Sun Deck Motel who had complete access to our room at all times. We were afraid at night as well as when we left the room unattended. We also left feeling completely violated. We spoke with Robert (the owner) and made him aware of our concerns and checked out with the understanding that we still needed to further our conversations with him. It has almost been 4 months and we still have yet to receive the phone call that was promised. Also, while we were there we made them aware of a German roach problem in our room. My husband had a soda on the nightstand next to him and went to take a drink only to discover a German roach on the rim of his glass (very disgusting!!!!). Thankfully he saw it before putting it up to his mouth. Now, that we have returned home some of those pesky critters must have hitched a ride home in our luggage and we now have a problem with German roaches in our own home. If anyone knows anything about German roaches they are difficult to get rid of as well as the added expense of it. After 4 months we are still suffering through and trying to eliminate the ongoing roach problem which we didn't have prior to our stay at the Sun Deck Motel. There were other small incidences that occurred yet I have written as much as I care to.
