We have been staying here for 10 years and every year it gets better. I am impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The ladies in the front office go out of their way to help me but I notice that they are always kind to everyone. The rooms are always clean. I love the beds! I rest so peacefully... More

The location, and the ability to book a room on short notice, were both convenient. The room was much smaller than anticipated. Two beds, a night stand, a dresser, a chair placed underneath the free standing closet, a sink, all in the main room and a small bathroom that was just a toilet and bathtub. Nowhere to eat, no small... More

My family recently spent a few nights here. We chose it because we wanted a hotel with a pool that is close to the beach and Boardwalk attractions. For those reasons alone, the hotel was certainly adequate. However, the room was mediocre at best. It was small, and comes with no amenities, except for soap (bring your own shampoo). The... More

The location was amazing!! Very close to the beach. Staff was rude, not helpful about the parking situation. Bathtub didn't work nor did the tv remote , only basic amenities .. Overall decently clean and convenient. Beds were decent, sheets sucked. If you're not in the room much it's a very convenient hotel.

Last year when I stayed here, I gave the place a not very good review. When we were planning on going to OC again, we decided to give it a second chance. They may have still be recovering from Sandy, so why not? Glad we did since it is very close to the beach and all. Definitely cleaner, it looks... More

I have been going to the Pavilion for 15 years and this year will be my 16th. Rooms are a good size for families of four, the pool service is excellent, parking is a little frustrating so plan ahead, and maid service is great. I've read other reviews and I must say this hotel is reliable, affordable, and CLEAN! It... More

We stumbled upon this lodge as we looked for a place that was affordable but had a good location for our extended weekend away with our 6 year old. The location was perfect! Two blocks from the boardwalk. Pricing was great too - but you get what you pay for. It's a very basic room with two double beds (I... More

This was our 3rd summer stay in the apartments. They are always nice and clean and nicely decorated. You can't beat the location, no streets to cross to the beach, bike rental across the street on corner,(favorite with the kids), on site restaurant if needed, staff is always friendly and quick to resolve any issues that might arrive. The kids... More

The location alone is worth the price. You don't ever have to cross a street to get to the beach & boardwalk. A real plus if you have small children! The rooms are average size and having a refrigerator is a plus. It is very clean and housekeeping does a great job. There are 2 nice areas where we could... More
