“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

I don't know why they got bad reviews, I means it's not the best hotel not the best rooms but literally you are spending only the night there to sleep. You aren't really gonna stay in all day. It's close by the beach and boardwalk and it has a pool. It's least expensive than most other hotels. We stay here because we have dogs and they allow us To take them with us with us so we kind of compromise as well. Not bad and we'd stay again.

My family has stayed at the hotel for the last 5 summers,we have never had any big problems some little minor slips but NEVER anything that was not taken care of promptly!!! My children were small when I first started going and we have gone back there every summer in June for the summer specials,the prices are great for the area and the hotel is one block from the beach,Staff is VERY ACCOMODATING!all you have to do is speak up if there is a problem.

Our expectations were not very high based on some reveiws here, BUT, we were very pleased. The proximity to area attractions was very good, close enough to walk to everything but not too close to be bothered with noise. The staff was friendly and we were supposed to stay 3 nights but ended up staying 5....definitely recommend - GOOD VALUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed for the weekend. The rooms were very small. We had 4 staying in our room and it was very tight quarters. With the 4 of us and our luggage barely any room to move. Our room did have a refrigerator that worked and a microwave (we didn't use it so I'm not sure if it worked). No phone or alarm clock in the room. The TV remote didn't work. The bathroom is excruciatingly small, I couldn't even get dressed in there. I had 2 teenage boys with me so this was an inconvenience. Parking was awful. I don't recommend taking trucks or large SUV's there. Or room never got cleaned and I let 3 different office staff know and nothing was done about it. I had to go get towels because of our room never being cleaned. All I was told was to put the towels outside my door and someone would get them. The next morning they were still there.

This hotel offers what they advertise. Parking is the only problem but the OWNER takes the time to help out. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Clean pool. A good deal for budget conscious.

If you are looking for bells and whistles, this is not the place....HOWEVER, you will find very helpful office staff, clean rooms, cool air conditioning, and a great pool! When we arrived, we noticed at least 7 staff members cleaning rooms, sweeping outside, renovating and painting doors. The owner worked with us to give us an early check-in so that we could get to the water parks. Parking is a bit of a concern if the Motel is fully booked and the rooms are small....BUT it will meet all your needs while at the beach. We really appreciated the frig/freezer to keep our beach snacks cool and the beds were really comfortable! Thanks for a fine stay!
