The location could not be beat and the set-up of the suite was great. It was surprisingly quiet and the bathroom was clean. It was a bit confused at check-In, but the staff was nice. There was no maid service between Saturday and Sunday and we could have used the recycling bin emptied. Also, the A/C had a hard time... More

Was booked for 3 days, but after taking one look of this place 1 day was way too many. Rooms do not appear clean (more about that in a Min). At check in, was given our towel's and the remote for the TV?? Went up to the room and out to the boardwalk. We came back in the evening, and... More

Really enjoyed our stay, thanks so much! Management was great (thanks for the tip on the Crab Claws restaurant) , the rooms were clean (easily accommodated 2 adults and 2 teenagers). Hopefully we'll be back next year (all the way from Virginia).

This hotel is in a great location just off the boardwalk and overlooking the beach. The owners are vigilant about keeping people who are not guests at the motel out. This is understandable with so many people up and down the boardwalk all the time. This is more of a "self serve" motel, you need to turn in your towels... More

My in laws got a room for four days, and invited us to visit. We brought our two year old and 8 month old as well. When we arrived, it was to the manager yelling at my father in law, because my brother in law walked into their room to get his keys. Even after my father in law told... More

We stayed here for three nights during the week. Room was clean, bathroom was good, Owners here work the front desk, and they were quite nice. This motel has several policies in place that I'm sure are a result of having unruly guests, such as an extra deposit in case of damage to the room. Understandable - it is the... More

Stayed for two nights while attending the Gentlemen of the Road beach concert. Covers a short beach block with direct boardwalk access. Parking is a 5 minute walk away-no problem at all. On-site management was very uptight, probably due to the concert. We are a couple in their 50's and found it onerous that they were worried about us selling... More

I spent my vacation at the shore. I had a nice room with a microwave and a refrigerator. Sine the motel is on the ocean, it was a short walk to the beach. The rooms were clean and cozy. The staff was very helpful and extremely nice. I definitely will come to this hotel for my vacation.

My husband and I stay here every year with our two children. The hotel is nice an clean. Owners are very personable and they have great security. We have stayed other places and I would say this is the best motel if you want to be right on the boardwalk/beach. Very reasonably priced, too!
