The room was very comfortable and had a great view. Everything was very clean and all the rooms have a balcony. The location is great because the boardwalk and beach are very close. The pool is large and very clean. The service was very friendly; they let us extend our stay one night even though it July 4th.

We booked a Bay view standard double since we would be arriving after dark and departing fairly early in the morning. Imagine our surprise when we opened our door and found we... More
