You can't beat the location. Liked the fact that the beach and boardwalk were just across the street. Parking was FREE and right on the grounds. They gave us 2 free beach passes to use. The room was clean, had cable TV, free internet access, a small fridge, air conditioning and heat worked great, soda machines out front and an... More

Outstanding management! Staff was more than accomodating and took care of all our needs. RIght across the street from the boardwalk. Did not have the hassle of paying for parking or driving to the beach. Can't wait until next year to stay again. The price was just right also. Lori

Pros: great location. management was very helpful, they gave us an extra beach tag and let us stay parked in the lot for a few hrs after we checked out. Air conditioner worked well. Full size fridge. Bathroom was clean, shower was hot with good pressure. Quiet at night. Cable TV. Cons: Room was outdated. Beds were on the old... More

Price is right, but the rooms are not (at least ours). Extremely dated, no fitted sheet (just a loose one thrown on top of the bed) and it was stained, dirty, and they even wanted to come in our rooms and spray for bugs. I would never take my family here again.

This motel is in proximity to the beach / boardwalk / entertainment. Practically on the Boardwalk! Once you park your car you probably won't drive it until the end of your stay. The room we stayed in was quiet and clean / equipped with the basic necessities to have an enjoyable vacation. An Above Average Experience!

This place is NOT what you get on any hotel booking website!! It's very old and rickety the doors are extremely unsafe light shines through all around them, the parking lot is tiny, there was dead bugs in the corners of the room, the beds were the worst thing I've ever slept on in my life!! I've had more comfort... More

My friend and I were treated royally by the two brothers who manage the Motel - very gracious and kind - offering to help with whatever we needed. The room was quiet, close to the boardwalk, restaurants delivered food, free passes to the beach. They really cared about making our stay enjoyable - and it was!

Stayed here one night with my friends. First impressions of the motel on the outside was that it looked clean. The inside was a whole other story. The room was damp, smelly, and dated. The beds were not comfortable, and i didn't feel comfortable sleeping in the sheets so I slept on top. From my bed, i could see through... More

A couple issues with the room were a small refrigerator, a small simple room and no microwave which was advertised, but overall we were looking for a hotel with good location and value, and that is exactly what we got. Other than that we weren't expecting much and the owners were nice and we really enjoyed our stay. I would... More

This was our first time staying at this motel and the last time!! Price and location are decent, but it was old, creepy and the decorations were a joke! There was no fitted sheets on the bed...we basically slept on a mattress! The sheet that was on the bed had stains on it! We will never stay there again!!
