Dear Guest, We understand your stay was enjoyable in our clean, comfortable rooms right on the boardwalk. We understand that after your wallet was left behind in a public space, an honest hotel guest returned it to the front desk. The front desk team kept it secure until they could identify the appropriate owner of it (as no registered guest... More

I booked a room here based upon the reviews I read. I am sure they stuff the ballot box with friends, etc. It was a real dive. I have been to worse, so I gave it two stars. I figured it would be cool being by the beach. The beach was great, turning around to go back to the Inn,... More

We stayed in the off season which was nice because the boardwalk was all ours. We were on the third floor looking over the ocean. We loved our location and view. The room was fine. The service was nonexistent. I am not picky but we stayed 3 nights and no one ever came to clean the room. We had ants... More

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
