Unless you book this hotel by the hour, I do not recommend staying here at all. Half of the hotel is under some sort of construction, and the lights leading to one section of the hotel are just nonexistent. We had to use our phones just to unlock the door at night. Only one light worked in our hotel room. The heater was broken. The floors were sticky. There was thick, sticky goop on the bedside table. Everything smelled like stale smoke. The connection in the shower was loose, and trying to get the water to turn on or off was like trying to keep your phone charging when your cable has a split in it. The showerhead was falling out of the wall, and gauze had been stuffed in the gap to connect it to the wall. A tile in the shower was broken, and… yep, gauze was stuffed in the gap. The mirror and the towel bar were not connected to the wall properly. The bed was a squeaky mess. The pillows were flat. The sheets had holes and dark stains. There was not a fitted sheet for the bed, just a loose sheet hanging over the mattress. We booked this motel for five nights, and they gave us one towel, and one tiny bar of soap. And there were fruit flies flying all around the room when we checked in. Best of all? One of our party found a strap on in their bedside drawer. I've stayed at hotels half the price in sketchier cities that were better. We made it two nights, and then we booked a hotel elsewhere. I recommend you do the same upfront.

Where do I start? I checked out about 10 minutes after checking in and seeing the room, it was so bad. The immediate stench of stale cigarettes smacked me in the face when I opened the door to my “non smoking” room. Random lamps without shades made it look more like a drug den as well as the extreme proximity of each room so you can hear everything going on next door. Then there’s a flies that we’re living in the drain pipe of the bathroom so they were all over the place once you opened the door there as well. The safety and security is a joke because you have the flimsiest door with a door lock and chain on top that only a small amount of force would easily be broken. We were 2 women traveling out of state so this was an extreme concern. So yeah, we checked out after 10 minutes and went down the main road to a Best Western. What a difference to walk into that lobby and smell fresh air after the horror show of the Holly Hill Motel.

The cable tv didn’t work. The guest registrar found someone to fix it within 30 minutes. Pleasant and helpful. Attractive building from the outside and close to the beach.

No one could ever accuse me of being fussy about where I stay but in all good conscience I could never recommend Holly Hill. Here are my thoughts THE UGLY ... cleanliness is questionable at best. The living area seemed relatively clean, however that is called into question by the bathroom, in particular the shower stall, which looked like it had not been cleaned properly in a LONG time. There was either mold or ground in dirt all around the edges of the floor. It was so gross I did not shower and I typically shower every day. The air conditioner was not blowing very well, so I decided to check the filter .. The amount of dust on the filter was beyond description .. half an inch deep at least, and because it had not been cleaned in ages it had gotten sticky, I cleaned it .. and low and behold .. the room smelled better. THE BAD --There was a musty old smell when I entered the room. The decor is .. unusual ? Painted 70s paneling, the doors painted to look like wood grain(?). There was a random picture frame with no picture in it on the bathroom door that I assume is covering a hole. TV .. no remote and a odd rectangular box on one wall that serves no visible purpose. THE GOOD .. the staff are friendly and seem to be genuinely nice people

Room looked nothing like the pictures on the website. It was not clean, there was sand in the bed, the bathroom was filthy. We asked for a refrigerator ahead of time and did not get one. No remote to turn on the "tv" which was nothing more than a computer screen. Holes in the walls and stains on the celing. Out of code outlets which were loose. Did not feel safe there. Very disappointed.

This place sucks!! Don’t stay here!!!
This is the most disgusting, dirty, trash hotel I’ve ever seen. DO NOT STAY HERE! You may get a rash! The first room had tobacco stains of the ceiling and smelled so bad of cigarettes we had switch rooms. The second room seemed ok at first. However, the smell of cigarettes coming from the AC, floor and bed triggered our allergies. I then started to see dead bugs all over the walls and floors. The shower was almost covered in dead bug carcasses. The entire room was filthy. Dead bugs, cigarette stains, and god knows what on the bed. The fridge didn’t plug in! The hole is the wall gave Bates Motel vibes. I told the front desk it needed to be cleaned and I was told “cleaning left for the day” but they would send someone. After a few more minutes we decided we couldn’t stay there. When I asked for a refund I was told that since I’d been there for almost three hours they could only give me half of my money back.

Did not stay here. Run down establishment. We arrived quite late because of our flight had changed. The staff didn't answer the phone. We had to call because the bell on the door didn't work.
