Hollowell's Motel
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Atlantic Beach
Reviewed 21 August 2017 via mobile

We have stayed at Hollowell's motel for the past 5 years. The motel rates can't be beat but the decor is really outdated and need some TLC.

We arrived on a Friday evening to stay the weekend, got checked in put our luggage in the room and went to grab a bite to eat and buy a few some groceries.

It was after office hours when we returned to the hotel room. When I was putting away the food that is when the first roaches appeared on the counter and from behind the microwave. GROSS!! We killed what we could and decided to go to bed. There was nothing else we could do. As we were laying in bed watching TV roaches started crawling out from behind the crown molding. We killed the ones we saw. Needless to say we hardly got any sleep!

I reported it to management the next morning. He didn't appear surprised. He told us that the pest control had just sprayed the day before. I asked to please have the room sprayed again and he said he would. It still didn't make a difference, we kept seeing them everywhere.

The hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change rooms (not that I totally believed that would help because wherever there is one roach there are more and they travel). We looked elsewhere for another room but there were no vaccines anywhere close by that we could find for just one night. I should have taken pictures but didn't think about it I was just too grossed out. We won't be going back.....so sad we really used to have a great time.

I stayed here after visiting their sister motel. It was clean and well maintained for an older motel. The pool was clean and refreshing after a long day. Staff was knowledgeable and freindly. For the price and location and cleanliness it would be a easy choice to stay here again in the future. Can't wait to get back.

Not a lot of extras but the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. I liked the kitchenette, it provided everything we needed for the weekend. Over all we enjoyed our stay and will stay there next time.

We've been staying at Hollowell's for years, but this will be our last. The folks who work there are super nice, as always, but the place has gone downhill. The shower in our room only dribbled water and we had to pour cups of water on each other to take a shower. We informed the office but nothing was done. The bathroom was so small that you could barely turn around. The grounds were all overgrown with weeds. The support posts for the second floor walkway are rusted out, and it looks like they could collapse at any moment. Of course, the location is great, but the diner almost on premises now closes at 4pm, which was disappointing but not the fault of Hollowell's.
