“A Kool Place To Stay”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Koolwink will be a memorable place for me. The nostalgic feeling of the 70's that never left was so awesome. Rooms were extremely clean, staffing was unbelievable nice. This will be the place I stay at again when visiting my family in Romeney. The one and only downfall I had was the mattress was a little to hard for my back, other than that a recommended place for all traveling through this town.

The Koolwink is by far the most memorable place to stay in Romney. As soon as you pull up to the main office, you will feel like you have traveled a few decades back in time. The owner is extremely friendly, and loves to strike up a casual chit chat while you check in. There is a very small, but quality, selection of movies in the main office that are available for checkout for free. Be sure to ask about the history of the Koolwink while checking in. Our room was located in the complex located on the top of the hill, which is where I would recommend staying if possible. The rooms are incredibly spacious, by far the most roomy I have ever stayed in, especially for the price. The decor is straight from the 1970's, but it is no way old or worn. The retro style has been fully embraced, but everything is in pristine condition. By far and away the CLEANEST motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. The mini fridge and microwave was a nice touch, and the dual sink bathroom was very helpful for a family of four. The beds were firm, but still very comfortable. I honestly cannot rave enough about how clean the place was, absolutely excellent condition and spotless! I would stay at the Koolwink 100x over, and I can't help feel good about spending my money at a family run establishment rather than a big name chain. Be sure to buy a Koolwink mug while you are there!

Room Tip: Rooms on the hill are farther away from the road, and have a nice view.

My husband and I have driven past this place several times visiting friends, and thought we'd call in and see if they had a room for the weekend. It's so cute! It's like that 70's show meets Mary Tyler Moore. My only complaint was one of the beds sloped funny. It's a great place to stay on a stop over. The rooms were clean, the shower hot, and we didn't hear anyone else all night. I will definitely stay again!

The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. This property is a well maintained family run establishment. Our experience was nothing but positive from reservation to checkout. They have the added advantage of being the most reasonably priced. We would highly recommend if looking for accommodations in this area.

A colleague and I stayed here for a few nights whilst we were working in the area and we loved it! This isn't a 1950s themed motel - it just hasn't changed in fifty years. And I mean in a good way! For any fan of retro vintage this motel is a real treat. Fabulous decor aside, the rooms were clean and owner Robert was polite and helpful.

Back in England today I enjoyed a cup of tea from my Kookwink mug - a treasured memento. Stay here if you can. There are few places so charming and that manage the retro vibe with such success.
