We stayed at the Beach View for a long weekend in July. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff is super friendly and eager to help. The breakfast was WAY more than "continental" and included eggs, french toast and a variety of other things. And, you really can't beat the location. About a 1 minute walk to Funland, the Boardwalk and food. Was it fancy? No. Was it new? Not particularly. Would we go back? Absolutely!
