Had a very enjoyable stay at the Skyline tower. A bit worried because of all the mixed reviews.
Valet parking is $10 per night. You can pick up and drop off your car as many times as needed or want to. It is still $10 per night. Maybe being a New Yorker is the reason i find this to be a good deal. Every hotel has a charge for parking and we usually get a higher rate because our SUV is oversized. Here it is still $10 per night. The arrival, quick, easy and friendly checkin.
Our 1 bedroom was on the 15th floor, #1509. There are 3 elevators that are not as quick as you would like but they were fine. The unit was clean and obviously newly renovated, Modern decor and appliances, including dishwasher. There is no washing machine or dryer inside the unit but the laundry room in the 6th floor is open 24 hours. Big comfy bed, jacuzzi and shower, again, all fine and clean. We had a balcony with a great view. We received a call about 5 minutes after walking in our unit to ensure everything was okay. The Skyline has no casino but the is one across the street about a block down towards the beach. We walked the boardwalk late two nights in a row and saw cop cars patroling the area. Coming back to the hotel at night, there is a doorman, several people at the reception area and customer service area and very well lit. There is a indoor pool, computer room with free internet and printers. You get a password for wi-fi if you brought your laptop and that is also free of charge. There is a fitness room on the first floor.
If you're a timeshare owner you are going to get hasseled to attend a seminar, but then again you know this. We originally said no and then received a call the next morning to ask us again.
We said yes to 45 minutes and that is how long it took because i made it clear we had plans, and the free gift is a plus.
There are plenty of inexpensive places to eat. Someone recommended Perry's around the corner although we did not go. We did however end up twice at Gino's pizza and Grill for really good panini's. That is a block and a half opposite the boardwalk. I you don't mind the walk, at the end of the boardwalk there is a Johnny rockets.
If you are looking for fine or casual dining there are some options on the boardwalk too.
We traveled alone this time but i can see how this would be enjoyable for kids too.
The hotel has a rec room with games and arcade and they also offer movie rentals. You have a dvd player in your unit. You also have a hair dryer hidden under the sink.
I want to address some of the complaints in prior reviews:
Water pressure is not great but I thought it was fine. Hot water is what matters to me.
Jacuzzi turns on about 15 minutes after use. This is automatic and lasts about 1 minutes. All wyndham units with Jacuzzi's do this not the end of the world, but i can see how it could scare you a bit if you forget it;s going to happen.
Someone mentioned that ceilings were low. Not sure what unit that was, my husband is 6'4" and had no problems.
Elevators are slow. Like i mentioned before they are a bit slow, so, there's a bench right in front of the elevators, i used them- problem solved!
Parking is $10, Compared to the garages near by, it's a great deal.
Our check out was easy too. We called ahead to request the car from valet and it was waiting when we got to the lobby.
We would go back and would recommend the skyline to our friends and family,
