This place is a dump. It stinks. It's not updated. Everything that can be rusted is rusted. The common areas are not clean. The light in the bathroom flickered and the bathroom stank also. The beds are small. It is a miserable hotel/motel/something. There are some positives... the customer service was great and the staff is beyond friendly. You can... More

We did a quick getaway before our toddlers started school. We would for sure stay here again! Great staff and customer service, right on the Beach/Boardwalk, clean and well kept! We didn't use the pool as we were on the beach the whole time! Had nice breakfast choices, muffins, bagels, pastries etc. Looking forward to our next trip and stay!

Great view of the oceanfront - this was the best part of the hotel! The front desk staff are also very nice! Other than that this hotel could use a lot of work - the rooms are old fashioned as is the hotel. The breakfast has slim-pickings (breads, bagels, cereal and waffles - only carbs). There is only one elevator... More

The room was perfect. Perfect view of the beach. Even saw several dolphins from my room! There were so many activities to take part in everywhere on the boardwalk. I only had to drive once the five days I was there. The hotel staff was excellent. Very nice, and helpful. The best I have ever dealt with at a hotel!... More

Stayed here this past weekend. Nothing too terrible. I will say the walls are very thin so you can hear your neighbors every move and the upper floor hallways have zero air conditioning. The elevator is also really slow but you can't beat the view or the price.

We appreciate your high rating of our hotel’s affordable price, though I do apologize for any inconveniences that you experienced in our elevator, and I hope that your next visit will be even better. Thank you for choosing our hotel. We hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed four nights here (6/16-6/21). The hotel is well-situated among various shops and restaurants and steps away from the beach. Check-in was seamless and the front desk clerks were courteous. I will warn you that the hallways on the upper hotel floors are excruciatingly hot. The rooms are small but have nice individual balconies that face the ocean. Also,... More
