Choose this hotel for the Labor Day weekend due to reasonable rate compared to others. Location to boardwalk is good, quality if ok. Lots or noise from highway, a/c unit really loud, don't count on the breakfast in the morning.

Never book a room here! I had them hold my cc for a room & when I arrived I was impressed by the proximity of the hotel from the boardwalk activities. I asked to see the room & they asked for ID so they could make sure to get their key back. I didn't second guess her intensions thinking it... More

Good sized rooms. Mended tear in carpet was not pretty. Reasonably clean. Fridge and microwave. Very close to the boardwalk. Fancy furniture from mixed periods was at odds with the old building. Will do for the night but I wouldn't want to stay a whole weekend here.

I was absolutely horrified when I return to my room and turned in at 1AM to pull the comforter back to find a dirty stained top sheet with make up from a previous guest that was never cleaned or changed. I showed these pictures to one of the owners, an older woman who said, she personally cleans the sheets and... More

My husband and I stayed for New Year's Eve so we only slept there but our experience wasn't bad. It's not the Wynn but everything was clean and the office personnel was very friendly. I would consider staying there again.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel Saturday December 14th. This place is gross!! They claim they have "all new everything" but all it actually is, is a bunch of used, scratched, chipped furniture with missing knobs, etc. Our room had a fridge we couldn't access due to broken knobs. So that did us no good. They used to... More

I had stayed at the Passport Inn sometime last year, then again in early November. Since my last stay they have made many major changes for the better. New tvs...mattresses...furniture..and they serve breakfast. That makes a huge difference when traveling with children. The entire staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean. Then of course, you... More

The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful..the room was dark, gloomy looking and in bad need of a renovation.Although, we had the feeling that it had been furnished and painted for Halloween. We actually checked the beds for bugs before laying down. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend it either.

The room was Extremely filthy and full of bugs. I hope I don't catch a disease from it. No phone service, small TV. Everything looks old and dirty. My advice is Don't stay there! There are some other hotels near by a little more expensive but a lot cleaner

Don't ever book a room at this place. I booked what was supposed to be an executive king suite with a jucuzzi tub & beautiful picture window view by phone. This accommodation was even on their website. I was told this verbally, was assured of the rooms cleanliness and told that it was ok to bring my little dog. When... More
