We checked in late-maybe it was the last room. The room was moldy, there was fresh pee on the toilet seat and what appeared to be baby roaches! We were tired so we didn't complain until the morning. received a discount. Will not be returning.

My friend and I stayed one night on our way to Virginia beach and NC outer bank. It was fine for one night. A little dated, but clean enough. Had to ask to get wifi reset but it was reset in 5-10 minutes. The staff was nice. Breakfast was included. I love make your own waffles. I'd stay here again

Stayed: July 2014

We stayed here to Vacation at Ocean City,MD. It was a 45 min drive to the beach, the ride to and from was nice. The room we stayed in was comfortable. The air conditioning was on in the room when we checked in which made the room cool on hot humid day. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would stay there again!

This location has had its rooms updated in the last 2 years, but the overall facility reflects a mid-1980's colorscheme and decor. The rooms are small, but clean. Wi-fi throughout, pet friendly, family friendly and breakfast served. This is the cheapest local option during Chincoteague pony-penning time. Vijay was very welcoming and helpful, and we felt safe and appreciated.

We stopped here for one night on our way to South Carolina. Our expectations weren't high, but we had hope. Unfortunately, our low expectations were met. We opened the door to our room and immediately saw some flies. We just thought we had let them in when we opened the door but it turns it more flies were inhabiting the room, along with some dead ones. There was a fly swatter in the room so this should have been a clue. The room had a musty smell and there was some type of greasy residue on the cabinet housing the refrigerator. The microwave hadn't been clean in some time. The towels were gray and dingy. When my husband swatted a fly on the ceiling there were small pieces of ceiling falling around us. The sheets also did not give a clean appearance. We counted at least 16 flies that we laid to rest. The fly situation is definitely a health hazard. I couldn't sleep that night. We thought about requesting a different room but we were concerned it would be worse.

We left early and my husband told the manager about the flies and falling ceiling. The manager, who is a very nice man said "you should have told me."

The only two things that save this motel is, it is cheap and you can park your car right outside your room. We will not stay here again.

I recently stayed at the Econo Lodge in Pocomoke City, MD and it was very clean. While it was nothing fancy, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable and it was reasonably price. I will definitely stay there again.
