I only gave this place a two because it was close in proximity to the places we needed to walk to. As for the room, very run down. I tried to use the phone to call the office and the phone didn't work. The front desk told me that none of the phones worked in the rooms and to use... More

stayed four night's and had a blast. Great location, didn't get in the car once. Very clean and very friendly staff.The pool was great for my granddaughter. Beach front so didn't have to cross the road. For the price of the rooms it is an excellent hotel.

The Diplomat is beyond dirty. They do not offer non-smoking accommodations. The walls and ceilings are nicotine stained and filthy. The bathroom ceiling is mildew and falling. The furniture, bedding and carpets are filthy and smell awful.

We found trash under the bed, broken chair for the table inside, rusty ceiling tracks for drop ceiling, tub didn't drain, at times bathroom light didn't want to go on, stained towels, stains on room darkening shades, bug on bed and in bathroom...

Dark,dirty, gloomy, old and covered in mold.After complaining; we were given a ocean front room, which was better , but very run down and outdated. What furniture was in the room was falling apart. The bathroom faucets had mold all over them.The elevator... More

Warm greeting...friendly staff. Great value, and reasonably priced. The rooms are dated, but we had everthing we needed, tv, microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. When the coffee maker malfunctioned the staff brought another one promptly. It's close to everything and lots to do on the boardwalk. We'll be coming back!

I have to say this is the first time that TripAdvisor reviews let me down. This place was very sketchy! The only reason we stayed was because we had prepaid and it was just for one night. The room was old and very dingy. The beds appeared to be clean, but I seriously was afraid to look very close. The... More
