Hotel is nice looking on the outside, rooms aren't as nice on the inside. Nice swimming pool, two nice spa's. Short walking distance from Boardwalk and restaurants. First room smelt like cat urine, they moved us to a better fresher smelling room, but one of the beds was broken down and uncomfortable and air-conditioner didn't seem to cool the room... More

I have stayed here 3 times before and this was my most disappointing experience. The room was not very clean, there were spots and stains on the bedding and couch. Very noisy people screaming and playing loud music stayed above us; I could hear every footstep they took. Management however did squash the music playing quickly which we appreciated. Overall...

The fridge had mold in it. There were black hairs in the sheets, in the shower were more black hairs. All the vending and ice machines were out of service on all but the 1st floor. The worst part was this black fly like bugs were flying out of the hole in the back side of the sink, like 20... More

Good location, close to beach/boardwalk. My son really enjoyed the hot tub. Room was large and very quiet. Plenty of towels. Breakfast better than expected. I accidentally left a bag in the room after checkout and the front desk was kind enough to keep it up front with them until I could pick it up. I really appreciated that.

The staff was nice but that was about the only nice thing about this hotel. For almost $200 for one night we got a dirty dirty room. I checked in and went to my room and found they were not done cleaning it, so I thought, great we will have a freshly cleaned room but I was wrong. As soon... More
