We traveled from Island State Park to this destination because according to the woman I spoke with while inquiring about rooms, this was one of the best motels in Seaside.
When we arrived, we asked the young boy at the front desk to show us one of his rooms. He was very accomodating and did allow us to see the bottom last room, which seemed nice.. Although I was totally disgusted when I pulled up the comforter and saw stained bedding. He assured me that the bedding was cleaned after each guest, but I asked if he would kindly have the bedding changed and he said yes..
My husband then went in to pay for the room. After paying he was told that the rooms were switched because of my dislike to the first room. The second room was not as big as the first one and seemed alot more dingy but I tried to be a sport about it for the kids sake. They wanted to swim.
We quickly entered the room and wanted to swim in the pool, which was nice. After about an hour, I got out of the pool and entered the room, to notice about 10 fruit flies all over the top of my tot's sippy cup..........Gross.. When I went into the bathroom, I heard birds chirping..Which must have made a nest near or in the exhaust fan. Some towels were very dingy..which I can't believe they would even put them out. .(they no longer appeared the shade of white) The kicker was when my nephew sat on the bed and about 3 large flies started flying around the room.. We knew we would not be able to sleep here for the fear of other pests.. When I initially looked at the other room, I posed my concern about bed bugs and the boy told me that they had passed their pest exam with flying colors on the first try.
When we went in to speak to the person in charge, the young boy told me it was him. He was very polite and gave us our refund. He told us that all motels have these flies in because we're on an island. The only place to avoid them would be finding a room away from the beach. On that note, we decided to drive the 3 hours home.
For the price of the room, they could try to update. The cleanliness was not good. I noticed above the dining table that it hasn't been cleaned in awhile and the floors needed to be vacuumed.
I would never return to this place nor after the boy's comments would I want to return to Seaside Hgts...GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
