We loved staying right on the boardwalk. The Kite Loft is just next door, so they have kites displayed on beach in front of hotel.There is an indoor and outdoor pool. All rooms have balconies, many with just a side view of the ocean, some front view. Short walk to the inlet for amusement park rides. Nice, professional staff. The only reasons I didn't give 5 stars were: the breakfast area is very small, so very crowded all morning without enough tables. Also, breakers kept blowing, so our phones were not charging when we thought they were.
