I have been to various hotels all over the world I would have to say this is the nastiest place you can stay. We were there for 3 nights and no housekeeper showed up. Drunk people everywhere with vomit in various places. When we asked for house keeper to clean they argued with us saying we had do not disturb... More

Place we had was a suite. Two king beds and a sofa and a nice view of the bay. Big and clean. Wouldn't let us check until three on the dot; I understand the rules but what's the difference between 5 mins before three ? What could have been done with the room not being ready. Negatives: staff; when people... More

The location is convenient for sure. the housekeepers were always available for extra linens, etc. The room (suite) was fine, obviously dated. Not super clean, but not dirty. I do a quick cleaning wherever I go. There were times one bed would get made and not the others?? 2 small refrigerators were convenient! A bit of sand on the floors... More

I made a reservation there because a friend said they had multiple rooms on the boardwalk. After reading all the terrible reviews I cancelled and made sure to ask them to send me a cancellation email. In the email it says 5-7 for refund (minus the 10%). I called on day 8 and asked about my refund and was told... More

I stayed here recently with my family because we stayed here about 5 years ago and had a good experience. Since then, things have obviously not been good for this place. The price is okay for being just about right on the boardwalk but that is about all this hotel has to offer. The front desk staff doesn't seem to... More

This hotel is fine. The front desk is terribly understaffed and parking is terrible but it's right on the boardwalk, clean and has everything you need. Oceanfront rooms are above shops so it's only quiet from 12 to 6 am but that's the deal when you stay on this part of the boardwalk.

We have a family of 6 and we thought that getting a suite would be fine.....wrong! This place is beyond disgusting. This was our very first vacation all together in 13 years and it was repulsive at this place. Mold, dirt, wi-fi never worked, garbage, no towels, no wash cloths, no dish cloths, and did I mention MOLD everywhere! Oh... More

I have stayed at this hotel 5-6 times in the past few years. Unfortunately I am very dissatisfied with the condition of the hotel now. We arrived in our room to find that someone had urinated in the pull out couch which we were using for our 2 grandchildren that were with us. There were dirty, wet, smelly, urinated sheets... More

This was our 2nd time staying here! I love the fact that it's on the boardwalk! The room is nice size! The only problem we had was that our floor was still wet when we enter, my mom almost fell. Definitely will stay here again!

This hotel is definitely not worth the money at all. Check in took forever because there was only 1 man working the lobby at check in time. We had to park on the street because there was not enough parking for all the rooms. When we finally got to our room, we were on the 2nd floor with a pool... More
