We found this hotel online and booked it. There was nothing else available, and the fact that this one was should have been a red flag. We arrived around 2 to check in. The office smelled terribly of curry but eager to get out to the beach we decided to ignore the somewhat bad neighborhood and run down look. After... More

The motel is in a great location near the beach. Our family stayed in a 3 bedroom room. Room size was comfortable and the pool was clean. They had a grill and security really made sure we felt safe. Room can definitely need an upgrade but overall my experience was good.

My wife booked two rooms here based on the proximity to the boardwalk/beach. Price $129 night each room, a Sunday night in August. She did read negative reviews (as I found out later on) but I guess figured "how bad could it be?" Lets just say it is the last time I will let her book a room. Now if... More

First let me say that there was one very nice older woman on staff who was very nice. That's it for the positive. The price was OUTRAGEOUS!! The room had no working fire alarm just wires. The beds were lumpy and the sheets, pillow cases and bed spread all has rips and holes. The room/motel was just very old and... More

Absolutely the most disgustingly dirty, filthy, outdated motel we ever stepped into. Booked 2 rooms, found ants took over the bathroom in 1, the tv did not work, and the fridge didn't get cold in the other room. "manager would not refund our 2 nights, told us we would have to pay for 1 night even though we wouldn't stay.... More
