If you want a 5 star hotel go somewhere else. This is a inn for goodness sake. When we arrived the lady at the front desk was very nice and they were able to accommodate our early arrival. The room was clean but did have a certain smell to it. Once we made fajitas in the kitchen area the smell... More

I really don't understand all the reviews saying this place is clean- clean facilities don't have several, 2-inch long cockroaches that just sit, bold as brass, on the bed, staring at you like they own the place. On the bed? Really?! Clean places at least make an effort to get the sand off the floor. Yes, even at the beach,... More

Recently stayed in oceanfront room on second floor. The room was ok. It wa clean but old looking. The microwave had rust on it. MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT was that pool was listed on the ammenities. I didn't realize until after I booked there was no pool. I overlooked the little symbol which meant NO pool. why not just say NO... More

This would be my second time visiting the jolly roger inn & pier. Still love it as much as the first time. Clean beaches, amazing views, and a very welcoming staff. The room was clean but a little musky. Still was a great spot to spend an evening. We will be back.

If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room, this probably isn't for you. The views are great,especially if you stay on the 2nd floor but room is average. Second floor leads right to the beach via a ramp. If you want a view, don't book the first floor. Motel is within walking distance to restaurants... More

I had not been to the Jolly Roger in 15 years and recently stayed with my family in July 2015. The cons of this hotel is that it really did not change in the past 15 years. So do not expect to walk into a luxury hotel room. With that in mind, I would encourage people to bring their own... More

We were looking for a inexpensive motel for 1 night and this fit the bill. It is a basic motel with tile floors right on the beach but the first floor (no ocean view) room we had was on the end and had the stairs right beside us and you could hear everyone pounding up and down. If you're looking... More

This place is good if you're just wanting to stay a couple nights near the beach. The room and everything in it is a little outdated and old looking. I've found that everyone has a different definition of cleanliness. That being said, this place ranks a 6 out of 10 for me on a scale of cleanliness. The sheets are... More

This is the worse experience I have ever had at a motel.. I could not believe the price of this dump!!! They do not provide coffee, ice, nor any of the electrical outlets work.. The sink is dripping and no toilet paper holder.. All this for $270 an Night!!!
