This inn was clean, comfortable, and in a convenient vacation. Price was pretty good too. I would definitely recommend it for a weekend away. Plenty of fresh bath towels, quiet, and elevators if you need them.

My wife & I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean, the staff was friendly & the location [1½ blocks] to the boardwalk was perfect. Best of all,there are restaurants within walking distance.We would definitely return in the future.

We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean, accessible to boardwalk, bike rentals and beach. Pool was great and also very clean. Pictures dont do this place justice. Bath and body works toiletries in bathrooms! Will be staying here again!
