Was not horrible. Is right on the beach. Elevators need work. Water pressure in showers is weak. Staff was friendly. But the rates were a bit to high for the age of the building. This is the second time I've stayed there but will probably try other properties next time. There are several a block away that are like 30%... More

Good gracious this place was the worst! Anywhere else and this would be a $30 a night hotel. When we checked in and opened the door to our room, it reeked of weed. It smelled like someone just finished. Normally, I wouldn't mind, but I had my kids with me. Upon examining the room, I found a large stain in... More

I was with friends who were staying here. We left to get some take out food at which time I SAW the money in my friends purse. She stayed to take a shower. Upon returning there was a housekeeper in the room. After my friend got out of the shower and we readied for the evening the money was missing.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and wish we would've went somewhere else. The rooms are very outdated (which we figured because of the price) but the nonsmoking rooms smell like cigarettes and to top it off our bathroom ceiling was missing tiles and the above toilet was leaking down into ours... GROSS!!!! we were also pretty upset that the... More

Room 301 is perfect for a small family. The front room has 2 double beds then there is a separate area with a fold out couch. Our balcony was facing the street, but you could still see the ocean. The beach was right there a one minute walk. For the price it is clean and worth it. It is a... More

Great location for a family beach vacation. Right on the beach and close enough for family activities. A good value. The hotel is a bit run down but not as bad as other Econo Lodges. Good value for the location. .

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

After checking in at the sea gypsy and being disgusted with the hotel my husband and I went to the economic lodge and got our hotel room with the ocean front room. The rooms were nice and kept clean the indoor and outdoor pools were kept clean. The breakfast was good and had good choices and all of the staff... 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
