This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here and we have been very happy both times. The hotel is very clean - I am almost obsessively worried about bed bugs and often have a hard time sleeping at hotels but the room was very clean and there were no signs of critters. The free breakfast is just average but, hey, it's free and it does the job. There is always a good variety of food and drink and it filled us up enough that we didn't eat lunch; it's definitely a money saver! The pools were clean and well kept and a good alternative on days when the beach didn't work out. The beach is a very short walk across Coastal Highway; very convenient!!! We love the location of the hotel; it's off the main strip and far enough away from the boardwalk that there aren't any crowds. Of course, we also went after Labor Day which always helps with crowds. We had a very good experience over all and would definitely return.
