The owners sat in front and yelled at everyone all day. The bathroom was really nasty. We left that house SPOTLESS & have still not received our security deposit back. I'm waiting a week & then going back down there. We took pictures of how we left the house just in case this happened. OH the best part NO HOT... More

I am completely sincere when I say that I have been in public restrooms that are nicer than this place and I am not exaggerating. I believe there has not been a repair, remodel, or upgrade of any sort since early 60's, again I am not exaggerating. Please do not bring children here. This place is dirty,filthy,gross,and smells nasty; Sadly,those... More

A group of my friends and i stayed for an extended weekend in the Clifton Annex. Let me tell you how it was the most rancid place i've ever been in. I do not understand how the owners find it acceptable to rent this place out. Its dirty, smelly, and things were already broken when we got there. We spent... More

It's not the worst hotel in which I've ever stayed. The rooms are small and not in great shape, but I came to spend time on the boardwalk and beach, not my hotel room. The location is actually rather good and it's pretty cheap for the most part. If you are on a budget, it'll do in a pinch. If... More

Upon arriving at this hotel on the morning after my junior prom, some thoughts from the movie Accepted came to mind, like the birthplace of crack, or a hepatitis c contraction hotspot. Upon entering my room i was happy for my recently purchased hobostab insurance. Originally two people were staying there but i got someone to go with me so... More

So.. I rented this place for prom weekend. I visited Laura & ernie before renting, and they were all cool saying drinking would be no big deal, just dont let them see it, and they seemed very nice. well, once me and my friends payed over $4,000 dollars (there were 20 of us), the madness began. I cannot even begin... More
