Price was great for an oceanfront and the view is amazing. The motel is a little dirty and not the friendliest staff there. We sat the dirty towels in front of our room in asked for no service but clean towels on a note. The maid took the towels and didn't give us new ones when we went down to...

Should've never checked in upon arriving. Decided to give it a chance but the front staff was rude, room very old, and truly feared for our lives with guests arguing and fighting all hours of the night. This place is basically used for construction workers who bank their per diem pay on a cheap place so they can buy more...

There were cockroaches all over the hotel including the elevator. The bathroom had black scuzz that I assume was mold in the shower. None of the outlets in the room would hold a normal plug. There was no face plate on the outlet closest to the bed. The air conditioner was in the back room and did not blow through...

The place seems true to form. They tell you up front no check-in until 4pm. The pool (outdoor is what I saw) and rooms look clean, staff is friendly. The places seems to be busy. Beach access is right out the back.

Couldn't get into room at 2 o'clock came back at 3. Same thing, room isn't ready, then she says check in isn't till 4. I obviously overlooked that when I was booking. 4 is really late for this hotel. Go to room and floor is gross. Stains everywhere. We then notice in the corner of the room, laying in plain...

We have stayed at the Viking now for the past 3 times to the beach. Nothing fancy but great rates, clean rooms, and oceanfront. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Love the rooms on the bottom floor with 3 beds and kitchen. Makes a nice trip to the beach when you are on a tight budget and can cook in...

This site stated there was an indoor pool -- there isn't an indoor pool. This site said they had wifi - they did not. Maintenance had to come several times. The door to the balcony did not work - there was 2 televisions but only one remote - there was no light bulbs in the lamps - the phone didn't...

You get what you pay for. It's somewhere to lay your head at night. There was some sketchy people, always cat calling. Staff was very informal and you get charged an additional 56$ for a resort fee? What resort?
