I've been taking my kids for years. 5 minutes from the boardwalk which is what we go for. Rooms are clean. Staff is super friendly and considerate in my opinion. Coffee is just downstairs. Microwave and refrigerator makes for additional convenience. Price fits my budget. I have nothing negative to say about my stays here.

Had friends in town who made unfortunate mistake of staying ~here~ ill advisedly! MOST unpleasant - the room was far too small and undesirable to be able visit the poor souls who thought they'd stop near the Boardwalk. Would have been far better off to spend the extra dollars for a decent room on a special elsewhere - There is... More

Stayed here with 3 more friends for one night. The desk staff was rude the rooms were horrible, the bedding seemed dirty and the blankets were full of cigarrete holes. Dirty, smelly and overpriced. Wouldn't recommend it at all.

The front desk clerk was rude, unfriendly, and tried to charge us extra money for ridiculous reasons. The room was grimy, the air conditioning unit sounded like someone had thrown silverware into a blender, and I barely had room to stand in because it was so tiny.

Me & my friends stayed here for one night in room 135. The room was a non smoking room but when we first opened the door it smelled like cigarettes & poop. The bedsheets looked old & felt like they haven't been washed. Luckily we brought our own blankets,pillows & air mattress. The floor was dirty & had crumbs. No... More

A group of us stayed one night here in early June. We had 4 rooms between 12 people. The rooms were VERY small and smelled musty. There were two double beds in each and there was hardley enough room to walk around the TV thats between the beds. The bathroom has a single sink and a smaller than average tub.... More

I only stayed one night but it was a horrible experience. The room reeked of cat pee, bed was uncomfortable and something in the room made me itch. A previous poster mentioned bedbugs but I can't confirm that nor can I say it wasn't. The motel quite simply is a dump and should be demolished and perhaps the motel next... More

Easily the worst place we've ever stayed in our lives. We had low expectations as it was a motel. So we thought nothing of the room when we saw it. We left the room for an hour to go into town to get something to eat and when we came back the wire mesh had been ripped from the window... More
