Good 7.0 From 75 reviews

Good 6.0
The people were nice enough, I could tell it had been tidied up but everything was extremely old and outdated. The mattress was by far the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on. I considered sleeping on the floor but the carpet was even more scary. Not a bad place if you’re looking for a cheap place to sleep, but this place is definitely not for everyone. The location was perfect though, very close to the beach!

Issue promptly solved
We had a plumbing problem which became apparent to us about an hour after we checked in. I called the front desk and the manager promptly came to our room with key in hand to another room, which happened to be the room next door. She was very nice and told us to move over immediately and she would have maintenance check it the next day. The new room was an upgraded room with a kitchen. We will go back again when next in town.

Room was old and could have been cleaner
James, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The location is wonderful. The staff was great. Room definitely showed its age. A few bugs were found as well as cobwebs. My biggest complaint was how horribly loud the AC unit was. It was hard to sleep.
Stacy, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The rooms smell like smokers lived there and comforters need repacking.

I don’t recommend this motel
The room was disgusting and dirty and had a bad smell. The sheets are very old and uncomfortable and the bed is very old and uncomfortable. I will definitely never be staying here again
Eilat, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Nice but nothing fancy
We have stayed at the Captains Cove a few times and will be back again. I'ts close to my Daughters house and the beach with lots of restaurants nearby. The hotel staff has always been nice and they are pet friendly with a dog walk area. I'ts an old place with nothing fancy but they keep it as clean and have a cute swimming pool my grandkids love to play in. Bring your own pillows and good earplugs for the noisy neighbors and all is good for your stay.
