got a room here through http://booking.com and was prepared for the worst, but things went pretty smoothly. i was prepared for cantankerous owners and was greeted by their daughter, a little cutie who was friendly as heck.
big six has definitely seen better days, but the owners keep the place clean, the price is decent and you're a block from the boardwalk, but also right next to downtown, which is why i wanted to stay here. Big 6 is very centrally located and if you don't have a car, you can easily walk to the beach or downtown in a matter of minutes.
i like the location and the place is cute, but the room had a heavily sanitized smell that slowly faded to vaguely-vomit, doubt i will be back. oh, and someone overdosed on pills while i was there. serious!
