My wife and I were here during bike week for business at a dental show. Upon first appearance the hotel looks questionable. However, Rachel at the front desk was an amazing help and went above and beyond for us. The room was very clean, newly renovated, and had a great view. The breakfast was just what the body needed each... More

The rooms are quite adequate but the location is about six blocks from the boardwalk area. The hallways were dark and filthy. The exterior carpeting needed a good cleaning. The elevators were in sad shape. At night I noticed cockroaches in the bathroom. I also noticed that there appeared to be nicer hotels offering a much cheaper price. I think... More

Because it is sitting directly on the beach, there will always be maintenance issues caused by the ocean air. Hotel is aging, but still has clean rooms, fresh linens and decent breakfast. Took the stairs to stay healthy, and did beat everyone to the 5th floor for those that waited for the slow elevator. Our room faced the ocean and... More

I chose to stay at this hotel despite the comments in many of the reviews. It was reasonably priced and conveniently located for my trip as well as right on the beach. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to talk with. The stairs and hallways are a bit dark and soiled but the room was very clean. I stayed... More

This place is now called the econo lodge and it's horrible! DH registered us for two nights. The first night we had to stay because it was very late and we were both tired. After entering the room I insisted that he cancel the second night. The rugs were so dirty I walked around in my shoes. The sheet didn't... More

Thought we hit gold with free breakfast, parking, heated indoor pool and ocean front view for the winter price we received. However, after our arrival, we quickly regretted our decision to stay here. The room was smoky (although designated as nonsmoking) and we had a palmetto bug (aka roach) in the mini fridge. When we booked the hotel, I called... More
