Room was not clean.
Mildew on the shower curtain. Spoke with maid and she didn't see an issue. My wife had to soak the curtain herself. Sink drain did not work even with it unplugged. Took over a minute to empty. One bulb burnt out on fixture. Shower head leaked into the bathroom over the curtain. Good pressure however. Toilet only worked occasionally.
Dust was caked on the ceiling fan. Both frying pans were rusted and dirty. The one pot was usable. Silverware consisted of one knife, 3 forks, no spoons. Toaster did not work. Small refrigerator 'frozen compartment' frozen over. Not usable. Under the sink had mold and blistered paint.
Carpet was stained. AC did work well.
Unkempt. Cigarette butts not emptied from ashtrays, grass and weeds overgrowing the flowerpots. No flowers.
Not cleaned. Water never checked for pH. Chlorine was just dumped into the pool. Containers of liquid chlorine are stored open, unprotected in the pool area. Way too easy for any child to get at. VERY DANGEROUS!!!!!
Location of the property is quite convenient.
We've stayed here for 20+ years. Never again.
We booked this motel because it was the only one in the area in walking distance to the place our family was staying that had a vacancy on short notice. I was hesitant because of the reviews but figured how bad could it be. This place has got to be the most disgusting place I've ever stayed on the entire island. Every bad review on here is dead on - mold, filth, noise, I could go on and on. They do not clean the sundeck or pool area. Each morning we had to pick up other guests' trash and garbage on the sundeck just so we did not have to look at it. The only umbrella is torn almost to shreds, the lounge chairs are grimy, the curtains in the room are torn and the light fixtures need replaced. The doors are also flimsy and anyone can forcibly open your door even with two locks. Since I was an idiot and I booked a non-refundable rate ($401.50 per night), we were pretty much stuck. We stayed two nights too many. Do yourself a favor and go further into the Crest where the overall quality is much better.
Very nice room, big! Full equip kitchenette! Had a plumbing issue when we arrived, took 10 minutes to come and repair! Not even that fast at home! Wifi didnt reach our rooms and was a bit slow, but we are mon vacation right so we shouldnt use it! Ha ha ha! Room wa clean, bathroom was nice and clean! Towel super clean and bed too! We would go back anytime! If it wasnt so far, i would go every year! Would even ask for the same room! Air conditionning working so well it was cold for me ( i keep it at 18C at home ). So for me a 5 star motel all the way!
Fo the big complainer! If you want to have perfection, stay home!
For the other, dont read the bad review, i think its people who are very sad in their lives and complain about every little thing!
I recommend +++ that motel!
First time at the Sea Kist Motel. We got into town early but our room was ready. The room was clean, very large with a small kitchen . The water pressure was good & the water always hot. The staff was very nice. The pool was small but clean .It was always quiet, no loud, obnoxious people. We will def stay again.
I was nervous with this being the first “motel” I’ve ever stayed in. I was very pleased with my stay. Location was great, super close to the boardwalk. Very clean rooms. There was a small clean pool with several chairs around it. Although parking is free, it is super tight and difficult. I had an issue with parking and I alerted an employee who took care of the issue right away. Comfortable beds. The check in/ out process was very easy. Each room has its own air conditioner. There is an ice box available for use. Sign states that the Pool only open till 6pm, although I don’t think it’s strictly enforced. Rooms had thin walls, could hear kids screaming from the pool area.
Kitchen was poorly stocked. Only 2 pots, and no pans. Hardly any cooking utensils. Small area to cook in, but good enough for a few days. Microwave, small refrigerator, and coffee pot included in the rooms with a kitchen. No shampoo, so bring your own. Bathroom could use updating from the older pink tile. The front door concerned me a bit, seemed a bit loose, but there was two locks on the door.
I would stay again!
