Sorry this is so late. My husband and I stayed at Beach Bum for from July 1st-July 4th. We were there for our honeymoon. I planned the wedding and husband planned honeymoon. (Tight budget for honeymoon, went cheaper on hotel so we could do things like parasail and jet ski). I will admit I expected much more upon arrival to... More

Motel was very close to the boardwalk. We stayed in the newly renovated first floor of the main building. The room had only the basics. There were no extras such as a hair dryer or extra toiletries. Also, there didn't appear to be any phone and only one hanger in the "closet" area, neither of which really bothered us as... More

Great location close to the boardwalk and beach, no need to use the car after we arrived and parking was not an issue. Room was fairly simple and not decorated with cheesy seashell pictures but with modern pretty bright paintings of beach scenes and had some outdated furniture and limited TV channels, some of which the sound was out, but...

So it depends on what you're looking for. Lots of frills and extras? Not it. There's wifi, but not much else. Brand spanking new place? Nope...it shows it's wear in some places, but it's clean and well kept. Right on the beach? Nah...it's a short stroll, so woe to the person who hates walking. Peace and solitude? No way...people hang... More

Eh...it could be worse was the mantra for this hotel. The room was Ok. Broken and missing tiles in kitchen. Bathroom vent had years of built up grease and dust. 1 bed was comfortable the other not so much. Fridge was very clean. TV has 10-15 channels (no espn). The drapes were four individual panels that you need to position... More

We just got back from staying at the Beach Bum Motel. We enjoyed our stay except for the very uncomfortable beds! If it weren't for that we would go back there again but that was the deal breaker for us. Other than that, everything else was great for the price....liked having a little kitchenette, there were no issues with parking,... More

Thank you for your time for the comment. I apologize for your inconvenience regarding the bed. Most of our rooms had new carpets, TVs, furniture, and bedding since they were remodeled this year. Unfortunately due to a tight budget we could not remodel all our rooms. Our goal next year is to remodel all the remaining rooms. We should have... More

Positives: Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Maid service was very good. Fresh linens were delivered daily. Pool was clean. Negatives: Beds were very uncomfortable. Only got a few channels on an old TV with poor picture quality. Parking in the rear lot is hit or miss. We stayed in an efficiency by the pool, which we thought was an... More
