Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We were blessed with a mostly rain free summer but we did recently have a couple of back to back rain days. The Groupon has introduced us to a new customer and for that we are grateful. We drop into full off season rates in October... hope to... More

Easy shuttle to the beach/boardwalk, but enough here to do that an 11 year old and 8 year old are content to spend at least one full day just doing things at the hotel. We were here four years ago and it was a huge hit with the kids. I wasn't sure if my daughter would be too old this... More

I have tried contacting this guest as I feel it is important to get when possible first hand information so we can learn and not repeat issues that will arise on occasion. It is true that this guest found to be what I believe was a beetle bug on their pillow upon arrival which was near midnight. Our night manager... More

This place is great! Something to do for all ages and free shuttle bus to the beach. Kids love the pirate spray ground, outdoor and indoor pools. Away from all the noise on coastal highway but still close enough to the beach. My family has Stayed there for over 7 years and the prices are reasonable and worth the money... More

I am troubled by this review. We like any other hotel, movie theater, airplane or just about any place people move around will have to deal with bed bugs on occasion. It is an issue as they are brought in and what can be termed hitchhikers. If this had been a bed bug issue we would have admitted it, treated... More
