The room was just what we needed, simple and clean with a kitchenette. The place is not overly glamorous but the accommodating staff more than makes up for it. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful (printing plane tickets, upgrading us to an oceanfront room only because it was cold etc). The room was very reasonably priced and... More

We were there when the new owners took over. It just didn't seem the same but we enjoyed our stay. However when we returned in September as we've done for many many years it was very disappointing and just sad. The prices tripled ( we did get the original rates when we booked in March.) The rooms were dirty... had... More

We have been staying at the Sea Horn Motel for 15+ years. Since the ownership change it has gone downhill rapidly. * Indoor pool, no lights at night * Outdoor pool was cold. Staff claimed they didn't know it had a heater. Then left it on and too hot to swim in pool. * Maintenance is a joke. Report it... More

Please note that I have written previous reviews of this hotel. I have no hidden agenda. Another reviewer suggested that the problems were "self-made". Really? There was a metal fork laying beside the pool for days, the hose by the pool was split,allowing it to spray water everywhere but your feet; the patio door handle was broken, as well as... More

Arrived an hour early and they hadn't started cleaning our room. The office staff were rude, and thank God we booked early in the year, they had doubled the rates. There were several maintenance issues, the patio door lock was broken and hanging off door, the toilet is very slow and I have plunged it. No spoons in silverware. Some... More

Just as the title says...it needs tweaking. New owners, so maybe they are a bit overwhelmed. With a good staff much can be accomplished in a shorter time. Now, on to the review... "The Good" Check in very quick. Room was as I requested. Beautiful view from an oceanfront efficiency. Modest price. "The Bad" Needs new decor. Rust in places.... More

We've been coming to the Sea Horn for years. It was family owned for over 30 years by Vince and Donna. Great people who took great pride in providing a great visit every time. Upon our arrival we learn that Vince and Donna had sold the hotel this past April. We weren't sure what to expect. We would certainly miss... More
