The good.......Genuinely nice person checking in guests. Also, good- The elevator worked.

The not so good...... The morning I came down (8AM) breakfast consisted of cereal, coffee and toast. Oh, and a waffle maker.

The bad...... About a 4 inch band of black mold above the shower stall that went on for a few feet. Looks like it has been there a loooooooong time. Overall cleanliness of the bathroom is about like a group bathroom at a campsite. Shower curtain was a foot too long so you stand on it as you shower.....but so did everyone else before you. Ugh.

Get a good price if you stay there. Lower your expectations.

Room Tip: Top floor a must

We were a walk in reservation because another hotel that we had reserved in advance was completely inappropriate for our needs. Michael gave us a great rate and room and we managed to settle in within minutes.
This double room was large enough to accomodate our kindercot and came with fridge / microwave and flatscreen tv which we could plug in our usb stick and watch our own material and a/c and a large bathroom.
Breakfast was included and was sufficient and the attendant managing the area was excellent! It was a convenient distance from the boardwalk 10 minutes walk. I would certainly stay here again.

I got really disappointed by this hotel. The carpet was stained all over and the smell on the room was disgusting, My wife had the worst night ever in a hotel and after only 1 night here, asked me to check on feedback before getting into any hotel. The horrible smell was very bad and there were no towels at all so had to ask for all required towels, all appliances were disconnected. The pool and even worst, the Jacuzzi were the most horrendous and dirty places with tons for green humidity and who know what else. If you can spend a few more bucks, do it. If you can stand a very outdated and poorly maintained hotel and room, go for it. The breakfast is the cheapest you will find, it's not worth it. Go out and take something else somewhere else. Very old and painful beds. Very old furniture, appliances, etc. Worst days Inn ever for me and my family.

We arrived later in the evening, check in was uneventful and the quality of the hotel was okay. It was noisy at points but for the most part had an enjoyable stay! Great staff!
