The hotel itself was definitely not the worst I've stayed in and if I had to find an inexpensive hotel at the last minute, I would stay here again. We asked to stay at the Dawn building not the Nova based on other reviews and stayed in room 18. The location was the main reason I chose this hotel, it... More

The hotel owner/ staff was very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to help me out. The room was clean, could use a little bit of spackle and slight repairs, nothing major. The real value in this hotel is the location- very close to Convention Center, barely a block away. A Rite Aid is a block away, there... More

My husband and our 2 kids stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. I must say I was really concern after reading some of the reviews.it was clean, comfortable, and the location was perfect. Our 2yo fell asleep early but we got a great view of the firework just outside our room! It was great. All the hotels there... More

This Motel is a Very Basic nice hotel. The staff were great and the rooms were clean. You can park your car and walk were ever you need to go. Just feet from the boardwalk and beach. Rates are great!!!

I booked my room 4 months in advance so I could have the room I always get. When I arrived I was booked in the wrong room and it did not even have enough beds. It had one! No other rooms were available. The so called manager blamed it on a new receptionist that didn't know what she was doing... More

The last couple of reviews really had me concerned about my stay (I booked a month earlier), but luckily I had a good experience. It's called Dawn & Nova because there are two buildings, we were in Dawn. The rooms are dated, but met our needs of a place to sleep and shower. They were quite spacious and a maid... More

The hotel management fails to show up on time every morning, it is especially important due to the fact they have piggy back parking. They left contact information but failed to answer the phone. When they finally answered it was usually with an attitude. The office does not open until 830 (providing management was on time even tho they live... More

Yes the location was great, but the customer service is terrible. There are a ton of hotels near the boardwalk. Not worth the stay. I would never recommend this motel to anyone. It's unsanitary as well. Overall, just a poorly run motel.

The only acceptable part of this motel is its location to the boardwalk. Past that, it is a terrible establishment run by truly mean spirited people. It was also overpriced and crammed to stay in. They just do whatever they want to people once they have your money.
