This was a dirty room that smelled bad. There was parking on site, or permits for the road spaces, but it wasn't worth the money to sleep somewhere so unpleasant. This isn't run by Knights Inn but under license from them - its about time someone from Knight's Inn went and checked what it is like.

On 05/18/2015 I stayed in this hotel, and from the start it seemed weird that the receptionist went before me in my room and turn on the lights before me, and 2 hours later when we was sleeping one person came through the window and almost got in, we could see a head shape behind the window curtains, then a...

This place was awful! There was no parking, when we got into the room it smelled of urine, there were no towels, the pillows didn't have pillowcases, and the TV didn't work. The staff had no idea how to remedy the situation. They said we could either stay in the room or leave, and there would be no refund. This... More

I work for a company that travels all week, which means we stay in hotels all week. Corporate books the hotels for us, which means for the most part we don't know what we could be walking in to. While driving to the location, we initially got excited that we were so close to the Boardwalk and the beach. That... More

There is no handicap parking space at the hotel. Or even near the hotel. And all their regular spaces are full. Front desk staff said to park anywhere within 4 blocks. 4 blocks!! For someone who is disabled to walk 4 blocks is impossible. This hotel does not comply with ADA requirements and this is illegal. It is a huge... More

This place was gross even for a budget motel. There were sacs of laundry everywhere, a plunger on the stairs to our room, the fountain was not running and was full of brown sludge and there were things floating in it. Many of the outlets in the room didn't work and one was missing the cover and there were exposed... More

This place is ridiculous! Some of the staff were very rude and jerks! We had two friends come visit during the DAY, and got charged 3 additional people! They didn't even sleep over, I wasn't even aware I got charged because I didn't even get a receipt. I can't even talk to the manager about this because he doesn't want... More

For a 1 star hotel it was clean and in a great area very close to the Boardwalk. Small parking lot with free parking, lots of free street parking also. Belongs to wyndam rewards program. Enjoyable one night stay.

I was expecting a beautiful room by the name of the hotel. We walked in and I could already tell how cheap it was. No counter space, but loved the large shower though the water pressure was very rough. Holes in the wall weren't impressing and its very noisy especially at night. Great location, so close to the board walk.... More

was a great value for the money, had a great spot. the room was located around the side of the building, short walk to the boardwalk, would stay there again, however would not book through the internet, I ended up paying about 50.00 more, instead of calling then directly. should have known better, but the inn was fine.
