Double room was super nice and exceptionally clean, this place is more than expected and I hope to be able to return soon, As a rating of 1-5 stars, I'd have to say 6! SO much more than expected at the remarkably affordable price, I simply cannot say how much I appreciate the owner and all staff including housekeeping because they were absolutely awesome! I live on disability and can't afford the high priced hotels, but this Dry Dock had the feeling of a luxury hotel on an economy wallet, but what I think the one thing I liked best is that all the staff make you feel like a person and not just a statistic.

We would love to hear why you were dissatisfied, so we can correct it. Cannot track that you were a customer at our establishment. Thank-you

Although we asked for towels to be changed out in just a few minutes when we’d be leaving for the day, when y’all s sweet housekeeping crew knocked on the door, but they never came back...:/ but not a tragedy.

Within walking distance of the beach.

Room was very clean. Staff was very polite. Room was just a bit small but we weren't there for the room.

A motel is a motel.

The sheets were clean, but the comforter was filthy. On our second night, a breaker blew at 2:00 am causing the window ac unit not to function. Luckily, there was a power strip that the fridge and microwave were plugged into and we were able to use that to connect the ac to the bathroom socket that wasn't blown.The staff was nice and the room and the grounds were clean, although there was mold in the shower. Very average/ sub par experience was had.
