Room lacked basic needsPosted Sep 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
Room was large enough and clean enough (certainly no bugs), but had no amenities--no rod or hooks to hang clothing, no fan in the bathroom, no small conveniences (like a clock or TV remote). Commode would not flush solids (but this was promplly corrected by management). Efforts to upgrade were obvious, like windows and outside railings, but age is hard to hide. Location is super, but for comfort and any sense of luxury, we would not recommend this motel.

For the price and location, it wasnt bad.Posted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: Price and location
Cons: Friendliness of staff and new bed sheets each day.
Location: Its pretty close to the boardwalk
When I got there, a guest and the woman at the front desk were cussing each other out. This was a bit entertaining. The guest looked like he was under the influence, however. That seemed to be a common feature among the other guests. You get what you pay for but I think this was a good deal overall.I wouldnt stay here with kids or a girlfriend/significant other. It was just me staying here and Im not very high maintenance with having a place to crash.

The location is great. The rooms and service are the worst I have experienced. The front desk staff are very nice but not aloud to even give an extra towel. The rooms are dirty, unmaintained and small. We had to buy towels and toilet paper.

The location is great! The staff was not.Posted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: The location, the deck,the little diner next door,no sand everywhere in the room like there usually is at beach motels, the nice little flat screen tv
Cons: The personality of the staff. Take action against a room that has strong oders to the point it is almost intolerable
Location: The location close to the beach is great. It is close to Ripleys,the inlet and other stores.
The desk clerk was very rude with a customer speaking in a degrading manner. The trash was setting outside our door at check in (3pm) and set ther till the next morning. The a/c worked well and the refrigerator was roomy. The amazing thing was the room had no sand in it. So I would have to say the room was cleaned. The only draw back was the room smelled so strongly of urine (like a cat had been there for awhile marking it's territory) We had a few laughs about the indoor pool thats available but is at a "secret location" that you can use if you leave your room key for the time you use the pool. This just made us do a little detective work to find out the secret* (answer is below) The sign at the office was picture worthy telling you not to use it as a key drop. You can not check out before 9am because there isn't any staff there at that time. ANSWER ******Monte Carlo******

Horrible experience wouldn't recommendPosted Aug 27, 2013
The absolute worst experience ever. Rude staff, dirty the pictures on website are nothing like the rooms. Just an all around bad experience will never go back

It was very dirty.Posted Aug 27, 2013
Pros: less than 1 block from the boardwalk.
Cons: cleanliness an attitude of the help.
Location: very convenient to the boardwalk and rods and entertainment.
cleaned the floor just to keep my feet from being dirty. Staff was very unhelpful. My kids were disgusted by the condition of the place we stayed in. I can't say anything else that would be positive.

Yikes! Hotel Impossible anyone? Just a mess.Posted Aug 25, 2013
Pros: Location to the beach was ALL.
Cons: Keeping rooms clean and together should not COST EXTRA or have anything to do with the overall price. These things should be STANDARD.
Location: Location is right across a small street from the beach and is conveniently surrounded by many of the boardwalk's attractions/eateries.
My wife and I loved the idea of staying somewhere cheap (in price) so that we would have plenty of spending money left over... The Suntan Motel had an unbeatable price for being so close (across 1 street) to the beach. BOY WERE WE FOOLED! Just because you are calling yourself a "Budget Motel" does not mean you are free to neglect the cleanliness and upkeep! Beware fellow travelers, this place is worth LESS than the cheaply advertised prices! This motel would earn 0 stars from us if Expedia allowed it! The rooms are disgusting and we regularly heard other customers complaining to the staff as well. Here are a few of the problems from OUR room: Missing trims on walls leaving gaps between ceiling/floor and walls; dirty bed linens; mattress blatantly flipped upside down to hide an obvious unknown stain; only 1 usable outlet after the tv, fridge, and lamp were plugged in (we even had to plug everything in ourselves!); an ungodly smelling carpet; a shower curtain that was too short (leaving your already tiny bathroom soaked!); a window that didn't lock (are you kidding?); staff that entered your room routinely even with the "do not disturb" sign activated; being supplied only with 2 small bath towels (no rags, floor mats, etc). Thankfully, my wife brought cleaning supplies from home (not something you should have to do on vacation). GET THIS: If you complain about the cleanliness to the staff they will rudely tell you that it COSTS EXTRA for them to do anything about it...

If you stay here come prepared!Posted Aug 25, 2013
Pros: the proximity to the beach board walk and public transit were by far the best thing about this location
Cons: the cleanliness of the rooms should be priority at this property.
Location: boardwalk, public transit, beach
this property was overall disgusting. the room when u walk in smell like cat urine and felt wet, they had a dehumidifier in the room and had a note telling guest not to unplug but it was so loud that it is impossible to sleep or even hear the tv without unplugging it. thus making the room more musky. the carpert felt sticky and was very dirty my fiance walked around the room without socks on after the shower and her feet were black. to remedy this we took the top sheet off the bed and laid it on the floor just so we didnt have to touch it anymore. The room had an overall feeling of dirt and sticky. every towel, wash cloth and hand towel were stained with something that didnt come from us and we had to go ask for extra becuase the housekeeping never brough fresh ones. The new towels we got were also stained.. the mini fridge was either broken at the front legs or the floor was unlevel so i had to be pull open. the bathroom was disappoint the soap that was suppiled was about have the size of a credit card and big enough for one use luckily we bought our own. the best thing about this room by far was its proximity to the beach less than a half mile and because it was so unclean u didnt want to spend much time in there anyway. i will do yourself a favor take the extra money and stay somewhere nicer. but if your on a tight budget this can get the job done just wont be pleasant.
