We stayed here many times. In great need of upgrades. Circa 1963 bathrooms bedding and drapes. Perfect location which is why there is rarely a vacancy but wow, talk about squeezing every dime out of place. Come on guys....it's time for more than new flat screens.

Thank you for your feedback, we did update our kitchens 3 years ago and are beginning a bathroom upgrade this fall to look forward to for the summer of 2017. Unfortunately, the size of our bathrooms can't change, but we are going to make them more efficient. More

We've been staying at the Lark motel for years. We feel as if it's our home away from home. Everyone there is friendly and accommodating. The pool area is nice and they have good wi-fi. It doesn't hurt either that this is the most reasonably priced motel in Stone Harbor. We just love it there.

Any room is great. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Owners are always there in case there are any issues and they offer quick assistance. Pool is nicest and cleanest I've ever seen at a hotel/motel.

Our family has been going to the Lark for 20+ years and we've always been happy! Squeaky clean, perfect location, mini kitchen in each room and grill/patio area. Even when we lived in Georgia we drove up to meet up with the rest of the family at the Lark! We wouldn't go anywhere else!

The rooms are not huge but adequate and... More

This lovely family run motel is a delight. Staff makes you feel like they are there just for you! Most important for me is it was SUPER clean and in a prime location. Quite a bargain! They have a nice clean and heated pool too.

This was my first stay at this little gem. You cannot find a better location or a cleaner motel. Sure the interior is not updated, which makes it feel like you are a kid staying with your grandparents down the shore, which to me is a good thing! And I'm completely bewildered at how they keep those vintage tiles in... More
