I booked this hotel on trip advisor because of the good reviews. I went in blind. Everyone was right, very clean and comfortable, I joined the rewards program and saved. The value of a amazing breakfast and convenience of having the beach across the street and a beautiful park out back, and a pool and a hot tub was worth it. Staff was friendly. Some people would think it would be a drawback being far from the boardwalk. I found it a plus, only went one day when it rained. We saved money and walked everywhere to eat and if we needed anything. I would tell friends about the hotel and would come back again.
