We had a three night three day stay at this hotel arriving on New Year's Eve. We had room on the first floor that was very clean although poorly situated between the kitchen and hotel use bathroom. The room was very bright and we were pleasantly surprised that there was a mini-fridge.
The surrounding area is very quiet and there are very few shops/restaurants in the immediate area. The beach is located right across the street so make sure to ask for beach towels. I would suggest walking the 1.8mi south on the boardwalk to Lincoln Road for any shopping/dining as our restaurant experience at the Claridge was sub-par and over-priced. There is also a bus stop right across the street as well as a Deco Bike station if you don't want to walk.
The staff, especially Jesse Garcia, were very friendly.
The only downsides to this hotel were the lack of amenities (strange spa on the first floor of the hotel) and the extremely loud night staff that woke us up every morning at 5am with their joking banter (the hotel room doors are wood and the sound really travels.) Watch out for the $10/day amenities fee on your bill as there aren't really any amenities for it to cover.
We would probably stay there again but definitely not on the first floor!
