Dolphin Cove Motel
We booked a 2 bedroom SUITE. It was not even close to a suite. It was a normal room with another bedroom. No privacy whatsoever! No windows that would open, dirty, & very noisy. We have stayed here several times in the newly remodeled rooms & was very comfortable. needs to inspect their places before placing themon the website. VERY MISLEADING INFO, & very disappointed in our stay!

Nice motel for the buck!
Beautiful location. Room was nice and clean but lacking hooks in bathroom to hang towels and clothes. An additional mirror in the room would be nice. Mattress was old and uncomfortable.

Location is amazing, the room was clean, the employees were nice. Cons: did not use comforter, it was dirty, Room is compact, there is no AC in room so i can see it getting stuffy on hot days.
