On Friday, May 21 , 2010 we stayed overnite in order to attend a wedding the next day in Brigantine.
The price was very reasonable at $50 a night , unlike hotels on the boardwalk.
We checked in by 3pm and despite some of the reviews (but not all) that I had read, I found the room to be very clean and well appointed with a nice TV.
The bathroom was very modern and clean with a large sink and large counter area next to it. There were enough towels, hangars in the closet area and there was even a microwave and small refrigerator. The bed was comfortable and the bed linens and pillows were fine. The couple that I traveled with and who stayed in the room next to mine also agreed. We had requested rooms farthest away from the highway since I read in the reviews that it's located on the Whitehorse Pike and that's heavily traveled.
It was a short ride to Atlantic City, maybe 15 minutes. We had a late supper at Goodfellows Restaurant a short distance from the hotel. The food there was very good and a nice atmosphere (karaoke on Friday night).
Our rooms were quiet (located away from the highway) and there was a nice breeze from the screened window during the night. The other couple said that their air conditioner didn't work well so they felt warm during the night.
The next morning I walked to the breakfast area in the small lobby and was greeted warmly by the person at the front desk.
There were a lot of items to choose from including cereals, toast, bagels, some fruit, hard boiled eggs and you can make a fresh waffle in the waffle maker.
