The location for the Boardwalk and the pier was perfect if that is what your visit is for. The building is old and needs updating. The room was ok. The bed was clean and comfortable. The carpets were filthy. They need to be removed not cleaned. I think that Super 8 motels should be removed from the list of places... More

When the manager is telling you to be quite @6:00PM....on a Friday & Saturday Night, when all your doing is talking outside the room. Room was small, no closet's, the cleaning people were outside the doors early. I guess would be okay for couples that only want go to bed early. also the rooms have VERY thin walls.

very basic, but what more can you expect for a budget motel. Clean and tidy. Very friendly owners who made us feel very welcome. Would happily stay here again if I was in the area. Don't expect too much as it is a budget motel. Very close to the sea front.

This motel is really good value - good sized clean rooms and a great location. The boardwalk is literally 5 mins walk away and downtown 10-15 mins walk max. The breakfast was tastey and free wifi was really handy. Be aware, from September and throughout the winter months the boardwalk is only open at weekends despite what the guidebook might... More

Well, not average in price, fairly high for an 8, but is in a tourist zone. Rooms ok - Motel 8 style - but of two rooms, one had a pronounced bleachy smell - likely after some mildew that shows in bathroom. Clean otherwise, and nice reception people. Breakfast limited, but ok, and has a little outside eating area (the... More

The room looks good, it is very close to the boardwalk and the breakfast is delicious fresh waffles. This being said, there was food left in our fridge when we checked-in, and we saw two coakroaches during our one-night stay. When we reported those issues with the owner, he said that he doesn't understand because ''they already have a company... More
