We spent a few nights here right after Mothers day. The rate of just over $200 per room was bearable, considering the on beach and boardwalk location and nice balcony. Now the same room is over $400 per night. The faux victorian theme is enjoyable as is the whirlpool/pool off the lobby. The room was very clean and comfy. I don't think you can go wrong here if you're willing you're dig a bit deeply into the wallet. External renovation was going on during the days, luckily, not on our side of the building.
