We were on a trip to see Harvard, MIT, and Boston area, when we stopped by Hampton Beach thinking we could see the sunset. We found out as we were an hour away that Hotwire had overbooked us, and we had no place to stay for the entire weekend. Arriving at Hampton Beach, we loved the environment, and went around looking for vacancies. This was our 2nd stop, and the owner was such a nice guy! He chatted with us and let us know he ran a resort, Isaiah Tubs in Sandbanks, and also a B&B in Quebec. He was so hospitable seeing that we were Canadians. He did the usual salesman thing and sold us the biggest room with kitchenette and it worked out so well! Everything was great till we went to check out. Two kids, most likely freshmen in university or college kids were manning the front. We asked if we could do a late check out so we had time to wash the dishes, clean up, and take a dip in the pool. "Max" the attendant was extremely rude, let us know our room was booked at 11am (YEAH RIGHT, on a MONDAY) and we needed to leave asap (It was 9am at the time). Feeling flustered at his attitude, we asked if it would be okay if we could atleast leave our car in the lot (almost empty at the time as it was a Monday morning) while we had breakfast a block away. He rolled his eyes, looked at the clock and said only for half an hour.
Needless to say we didn't leave our car in that lot. When we came to give him our room key, he took it, threw it in a pile and went back to his computer, without even a thank you, or please visit us again.
Whatever good attitude we had about the motel with the owner the first night, was ruined by this young man and his ridiculous arrogant attitude.
Nonetheless, decent motel, clean beds, kitchen, GREAT AC, Air Wick in the rooms, a good place if all you're using the room is to sleep and perhaps, eat.
P.S. We stayed in room #19, and there's absolutely NO WIFI even though motel says there is.
