Place needs, ohh where do I start! First parking, none available. When we did park, other guests told us our car wouldn't look like that by tomorrow if not moved. Could have a cleaner office. Steps to the second floor are falling apart. Most of the people there must live there. When do people bring gas grills and cook outside... More

Room smelled of mold - had a broken window, torn rug, no wifi signal from our room, we were on the end of the loop and had little or no hot water for showers. We checked out a day early. Motel is across from boardwalk

The couch looked liked someone was murdered on it, the beds were scary and gross, the bathroom was tiny and the floors in it were spongy from the saturation and mold growing under the tile. I checked in at 2pm and returned the keys at 10pm, I couldn't even think about sleeping in there so I am currently disputing the... More

It was not a very good experience to begin with. When we arrived they told us our room was ready, we get the keys to the room and when we get there the door was open and who ever was there had JUST checked out. Room was a total mess, well of course it hadn't been cleaned yet. Later on... More

Most unfriendly or actually Aggressive treatment ever, the lady at the reception kept screaming at me when I asked for beach passes because I didn't read a paper in front of her saying that I should give my original driving license to get beach passes.. Room wasn't clean and smelly .. The pool is on the street .. Couldn't continue... More
