Good location, nice cafe attached to it BUT... there is ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING at this hotel. If you have a vehicle, stay away from this hotel. Trust me! If anyone on here says you can park there, I don't get it. Google earth it yourself and see what they consider a parking lot. The rooms are sooooo small (less than... More

This is a very decent hotel right on the Boardwalk. When you leave the hotel, you are right in the middle of the action. It is a block from the Jersey Shore house/store. Since it is a seasonal hotel, the rates are higher on the weekend. They have free parking and wifi, but you pay a reduced rate for a... More

This place is awful!! Upon checking in at 6:30 pm no one was at the front desk. There was a note to call, so I did. The front desk guy came down about 10 minutes later and checked me in. I asked if there was elevators since he put me on the 3rd floor and my mom can't do steps.... More
