No Soap, No Joke

Day 2 of an OBX trip with my daughter. The location of the motel is awesome...250' from the beach. Once scheduled I received an email with the room key code and the wifi password. The email said do not print. You better hope you don't leave your email device with the code when you leave the room. Wifi is a major factor in life nowadays. I was able to connect but it immediately dropped each time. That was a huge disappointment and will use up my data. There was a shampoo and soap dispenser combo mounted under the shower head. There was NO soap in the dispenser and no soap bars in the room. Since there is no staff there was nothing I could do. No soap???!! As we were leaving I noticed a document attached to the mirror. It was a list of things to be completed before we leave to include; leave all the towels by the door, remove the sheets from both beds and take out the trash. I emailed customer service and was told the were sorry I wasn't satisfied. They said we were not required to do the items listed on the document unless we wanted to. Every time I do not fulfill a motel/hotel's requirement I get charged extra and there was no mention of optional. There was also no mention of the soap or wifi in her response which are some of the most basic necessities of any room. We made the best of it and tried not to let it ruin our trip. Don't sweat the small stuff...especially when you can't shower!

Really nice hotel, clean and modern technology.

Pros: Cleanliness and great bed!
Cons: Just a mat at the door to catch sand before entering room.
Location: We travel all over the island, but when we plan on going to Ocracoke Island, we stay closer to the Ferry. This motel was convenient for beach and fer
Had a great stay and will definitely stay here again.

Miserable stay

Cons: On site personnel. Door lock key cards. 6 digit number code to gain entry is lousy. This place is a NOGO!!!
We tried to check in at 4 PM We were assigned room 102 but someone was already in residence. We had to call the main office in VA. Then we got room 105 and tried all the switches etc to make sure they worked. The TV was out of order. Another call to main office where we were put on hold for too many minutes, once answered, the issue of the tv was discussed. A work order was to be issued and a service tech was to be sent ASAP. After and hour, I called again and talked with a different motel service rep. Again, on hold then after much 'discussion' we told to move into the room next door. I said wait until I check to make sure that tv worked. It did NOT. By now it was going on two and a half hours and the beach was waiting. Finally I had enough, called for the third and final time to the main office. I was told the tech would not be out until the next morning which I deeded to be totally unacceptable. I wanted a complete refund but was talked into trying a third and final room which was on the second floor . Dispite having a limited mobility impairment, I climbed the stairs and yes, that tv did work. So back downstairs we go, pack everything up and trudge (several times) carrying our luggage etc back upstairs and finally all was ok. By then the time was 7:45PM, our afternoon at the beach was ruined, our attitude soured and 45 minutes used up on my Trac phone. The kicker, there were plenty of other places that would have been suitable. Never again with KEES

Small motel close to the beach with a nice pool.

Pros: Size, location, facilities
Cons: If you're going to be automated, have a person on-site during the initial implementations!
Location: Lots of beaches and fishing
Rooms were well-equipped for longer stays. Everything spotless. Apparently they have gone automated, meaning there were no staff onsite and no means to contact anyone locally. A code was required a to enter the room which was not provided prior to our arrival. I had to call booking to get the code which was not accepted by the entrance lock until 4 PM...on the dot! The wifi did not work and I had to call the supplier to troubleshoot...never worked well. But, other than that, it was a very nice property and we would stay there again. The lack of access was especially bad for my wife as she need a bathroom and we had to drive over a mile to find one!
