Stayed on 1/8 before cruise and on 1/15/11 post cruise. Sheldon is in the middle of being rehabbed so the elevator did not work, but the desk person, Nichole, lugged one of our suitcases up the short staircase to our 2nd floor room for us. Thank you Nichole! All completed rooms seem to be on the second floor at this time. The hotel should be very nice as an older art deco hotel once rehab is completed. The rooms that we had were done and were fairly nice. No fans in the bathroom however (it's and older hotel) so the newer paint on the ceiling was already peeling. The heating/cooling units were new and worked well. The new owners of the Sheldon seem to be making an effort to make it a good hotel, but keep in mind that they are in the middle of the rehab so things are not yet as they will be post rehab. With that said, it was a good value (they even upgraded our room to a "partial ocean view" for the second night) given the superb location on the beach and boardwalk. The beds were comfortable and the rooms adequate in size. I would stay there again.
