Positive Reviews

Great location for shopping and beachfront

Travelers who love to walk wake up and see the ocean on their doorstep will love this location. The Oceanfront Viking Motel is right on the oceanfront. For those visitors who love to spend their time shopping or buying gifts, then market Common Mall Shopping Center is just a few miles away.

Great value for money

If you are someone who loves to vacation, but does not want to spend too much money doing so, then this motel is ideal. The location, amenities and overall value for money is what keeps travelers coming back each year.

Staff are accommodating

Although this is not a five-star hotel, some visitors have said they received five-star service from the wonderful staff. Whether it was housekeeping supplying more towels, or a maintenance issue that needed to be resolved, the staff were always on hand to assist.

Negative Reviews

Some cleanliness issues

Some guests have reported rooms to be a little on the old and shabby side. There are some days where guests have returned from a day out to find the rooms had not been cleaned or serviced. In many of the cases, when the staff were asked to clean the room, or provide fresh linen, they were glad to do so.

Smokey rooms

Guests have complained that although some rooms were supposed to be non-smoking rooms, there was a strong, distinct smell of smoke in the room. Others reported a musty odor in the hallways and lobby.

No internet connection

If you are reliant on being connected, then make sure you bring your own device. Guests will not be able to connect from the Oceanfront Viking Motel premises.
