Rooms and all areas were very clean. Staff was very friendly. Access is a little hard due to the fact you have to go past it, find a turn around and go back. Breakfast was OK. There did not seem to be an attendant cleaning tables and replenishing but it was adequate and tasty.

I stayed here Columbus day weekend while visiting Atlantic city casinos. The property is very well maintained. The front desk people were very cooperative and helpful as I arrived without a reservation. The room was airy and the bed comfortable. Noise was not a factor. Aperfect place to stay in reasonable proximity to casinos.

Have stayed there multiple times over the last several years. Have found it to meet my needs and very comfortable. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay without high costs and hassles of Atlantic City. Will return next trip to NJ to visit family.

My family and I had a great time. I've never stayed in a hotel that had three beds in one room! My husband and I were able to bring our kids and have a comfortable night sleep without having to worry about them in another room or have one of us on the couch. Excellent idea! The breakfast is ok the first day but you might want to make arrangements for the next day. There's not much of a variety. We had the same day two days in a row and I got sick the second day. Other than that, it was a great experience. Will definitely stay there again! :)

The worst hotel I ever went to. Before I decided to stay at the hotel I inquired about the pool and was assured that it was gonna be open during the stay and when we got there it was closed. They reasoned out that it was cold outside when the other outdoor pools were open in the other hotel we passed. But it doesn't end there, the whole staff is disrespectful. They're in the wrong industry if they think they can just yell and hang up on people. I was also blamed for not understanding them well even though they were the ones that have a thick indian accent. The general manager also never got back to me because "he comes as he pleases." What kind of hotel is that? I was never reimbursed for the treatment I got and was blamed for the whole situation. I decided to stay at the hotel because I wasn't able to cancel the reservation, neither of the employees that hung up on me on the phone even apologized. I have never been treated by anybody this way and will never stay at this hotel . STAY AWAY!!! You could definitely do better than this hotel.
