I booked this motel, along with other family members for a weekend getaway. When we spoke to the owner he told us that the hotel was recently remodeled and was a nice place. It was a total dump! The room that we had (#14) only had one knob lock and no chain lock. In addition, the room was dark and musty. The bed was uncomfortable and squeaky and the comforter looked dirty. The bathroom was far worse! The tile was cracked and missing on the floor and there were big holes behind the toilet. The vanity looked like it soaked in waters from previous hurricanes and the base had a huge hole in it. The shower/tub had paint or some plumbing repair stuff hanging from it. The worse thing was that the ceiling over the tub dripped continuously on your head while you showered. We could only hope it wasn't from the above toilet!
There were some red flags that we should have noticed, like a huge NO REFUNDS signs in the lobby. When we checked out, I informed the front office about what a dump the place was. She just laughed and said, "yeah, we get that a lot." The worst thing is that this hotel, with its numerous religious messages on the marquees and everywhere in the office, pawned itself off as a family friendly religious place. In the end, they are using Jesus as a way to rip people off!! So, the Dry Dock family should remember that the Bible says, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." Do Not stay here!
