I booked this room for 2 reasons: high trip advisor reviews & the fact it could comfortably hold 5 adults. When we arrived we were a little shocked...the rooms were extremely old. The front room (when you first open the door) had two beds, then you walked through the bathroom area, then at the back was the pull out couch, kitchenette and balcony. It would have been nice for several reasons if the bed room and kitchen were flipped...then we could have heard the ocean while sleeping. Also, the balcony door is a door that will not stay open, we had to prop it open with a chair--not sure why there wasn't a sliding glass door?
Anyway, there was mold on the ceiling tiles, a cockroach crushed on the floor, and a coffee filter filled with coffee in the sink when we arrived in the room! So who knows how well they actually 'clean'. It was an ok hotel, but our other family stayed in another hotel for the same prices (Wyndham) and it was a million times nicer and in the heart of everything. Sun Viking Lodge is far away from the boardwalk.
