Great location on the boardwalk and close to all area attractions. The only negative was there was a leak in our bathroom ceiling. Contacted the front desk about it and was told this came from the room above us and it's been happening for quite some time now.

This hotel needs updating and cleaning. I booked this room for a girls weekend, very disappointing stay!

Room/bathroom was clean but upon arrival we noticed a lot of ants around one of the beds. We also saw other people carrying bug spray/raid spray who must have had the same issue. I would have thought the rooms would have been "Sunfest ready" beings this is one of the last hurrahs for the summer. We stayed here several times... More

Remote was not working properly. We asked a housekeeper for batteries; all she did was go to another room to give us theirs. This was the last weekend the hotel was... More

Stayed on the boardwalk .... great view ... left the balcony door open for the ocean breeze. Friendly staff and service ... front desk answered all questions and took care of our needs. My buddy and I were very pleased with the stay. Thumbs up !

Property was OK. Would have preferred the 12th St. location but it was entirely booked. The employee at check-in could have been a little more professional with her comments (some we thought were inappropriate). Another elevator should be installed at the 24th St. location...many people complained because of the wait. Several other improvements can be made. Access to beach was... More
