My wife and I were able to getaway for a week, found a deal for this hotel on Groupon and booked it! The pool was gross, and the wifi is a little weak, but other than that it was a great bang for our buck! The breakfast buffet was outstanding! The upgraded rooms were nice. They are in the process...

The staff here is very pleasant. The hotel is slowly being remodeled/upgraded. It used to be an old Howard Johnson. When we stayed 5/2015 ... The bathrooms had all been done, the hallway carpet and fixtures, the bedding and bed covers were brand new, pillows were new and comfortable, new railing bar because all rooms in this hotel have balconies....

Everything was great. We used a living social coupon and it was a great deal. Would stay here again! The breakfast was a nice Buffett. All rooms are oceanfront and it's right on the boardwalk. A room was ready when we got there and they allowed early check in!!

The staff were very nice. The hotel was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was really good. I loved it because it was right on the beach. When I called for towels, they were at my room asap. Very very nice hotel.

I selected this hotel based on good reviews left here and they were accurate. Very clean hotel, great location, direct beach views. My request for a high floor was honored. The sunrise was perfect! The housekeeping staff always greeted you in the halls and held the door for us several times. They were quiet in the halls unlike other hotels... More

Upon arrival, we had to wait 30 minutes, because some idiot was blocking the drive through to the parking ramp in the check in drive through. Other than that, slow elevators, and the need for some decor updates, our stay was pretty great. We were upgraded to one of two rooms in the entire hotel that had 2 balconies, one... More

First of all, we was there for only 1 night, on a Saturday. We had to pay $307.00 for one night. When we made the reservation on that same Saturday, we thought we were getting an upper floor room with a balcony. When we went to check in, we had a ground floor room with a small slab of concrete... More

older hotel, facilities and amenities are old too. Indoor pool is terrible and cold. Doesn't look anything like the pictures on the website. Small rooms (we were given the wrong room to boot). The price should be much less than it was. Like half the price.

I love staying here. Its an older hotel that have been renoveted. Its amazingly close to the ocean. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff and breakfast is awsome. I strongly urge you to go and shut off tv and ac and open sliding glass doors to balcony. The waves are sooooo relaxing!!!

My husband surprised me with a getaway to the oceanfront for my birthday. We live local, it's about a 20 minute drive from our home, but it was perfect for a break. My husband runs his own business and we have four dogs, so when we decided to book a second night we were able to take care of things... More
