We were happily surprised by this hotel. The location is perfect, within walking distance of the board walk and the beach. Large rooms that were clean and comfortable. My son and I came for a college tour and he had essentially his own room (we connected with a bath in the middle and the cost was one room). The reception... More

We stayed at this hotel after reading some reviews on tripadvisor, our regular hotel we stay in was booked early in advance but this was a pleasant stay. There are pros and cons to this hotel Pros: The Office staff was super friendly and accommodating. When we booked online they had given us a second floor room but I brought... More

I was really pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Very clean, quiet, even a room by the lovely pool and jacuzzis. Nice brekkie room too, and decent continental offered with room rates. My room was really clean, all wood floors, so no carpeting, and that is great for those of us with allergies. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. The hotel... More

Near to the pier and an easy walk. Located on a busy street but not too loud. The rooms are nice and clean. Beds are comfortable. Had trouble keeping connected to the wifi. The breakfast was fair with limited selections. The staff was nice and friendly. OK for overnight.

We only stayed one night and it was nice enough. I was surprised with this two stars motel. Through it would be worse. The breakfast was awful only carbs with carbs. Nothing healthy at all. But it was cheap, clean and the staff was sweet. Close to the city.

We booked thru hotels.com and there was information about roll away bad. any indication about it being extra paid was very well hidden, lady a the front desk said it is not a first time someone is confused about this ($40...

We showed up without reservations on labor day weekend not expecting to get a room...but to our surprise we were able to get a suite for very a very reasonable price! Nice room very comfortable and clean. Very short walk to the pier and board walk. Would absolutely stay again...gave it a 4 star because the parking really, really sucks!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The beds were comfortable and the room, although "worn," was clean. We had a room overlooking the street and it did get a little noisy with people passing by. You could not hear anything from adjoining rooms because this hotel is made out of cement. It is within walking distance of the... More

We drove down from Washington with our two dogs and wanted a hotel close to the beach that didn't break our wallets. We took a chance on this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The room was HUGE, the bed was comfortable (King), the shower was also HUGE, and the ambiance was nice. There were only two downsides. The room was... More
