From the moment we arrived we were treated like special guests. Small issues were attended to immediately and the staff was amazing. Thank you Jason the property manager for taking care of us. We will definitely be back.

As described in other reviews...a true gem! Great location, very inexpensive...An older property that has been nicely freshened up by the new owners, very clean!!! And friendly service. Perfect getaway spot! Seems to be a "family friendly" property as well.

I asked for an upstairs room which I was told we had. When we arrived we were greeted and checked in by a very pleasant... More

I could tell this hotel recently went through a remodeling process. The beds and carpets were new. The rooms were relatively large. There was a Keurig coffee maker in our room. These things make great coffee. The view of the ocean from our window was amazing. Looking at this hotel from the street is kind of deceptive the way it's... More

There was an issue with our bill we didnt notice at the time, contacted them when we got home and the money was refunded within two hours of writing so great service.

Note: you can not get to the beach from property, stairway needs to be rebuilt. I live locally but wanted a place to stay NY Eve close to the dance party I was attending. With AAA... More
