I had always wanted to stay here and when the birthday promotion was offered, I jumped on it. The lobby is lovely but the rest of the hotel is stuck in 1990. The carpet, the fixtures, the bathroom, the tiny TV, the furniture and no refrig. They don't even allow you bring an outside bottle of water to your room... More

My only complaint is that your reservation system shows inconsistencies, I rented 2 condos, a 3 bedroom and a 2 bedroom, I am 100% positive that there was a different rate for each one, but... More

Very loud, we had a premium room and the balcony faced the events. The music was so loud that you could not relax in the room. Train would drive by and toot the horn. Just a miserable place if you are looking for peace and relaxation. The staff was the only enjoyable part for me.

We stayed here on a whim in February. The boardwalk was not very crowded due to the low temps. We got a great room with a view of the bay & boardwalk. The staff was very warm & welcoming. I would definitely come back. There is great covered parking available, the pool looked well taken care of and there is... More

The hotel was fantastic!! They treated me and my husband like VIP'S. Everyone so courteous and helpful and willing to go above the call of duty to make the stay worth while. Will absolutely go back. Live band in the center and wonderful food at the Flying Dutchman.

We booked the Boardwalk Inn as our pre-cruise accommodation. The rooms where great and kept you close to the action. From here you could easily stroll the boardwalk area with out ever having to call a cab.
