“Great deal, Needs a deep cleaning and major updates.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

I want to start off that the staff at this Hotel are extremely friendly. They fix things immediately if you call down to desk. The sink wasn't working and they were there within 15 minutes to fix it. I needed more pillows, they were there within 20 minutes. Great service. But the down side. Appliances are WAY OUTDATED!! The fan on my refrigerator made this horrible bang when it shut off, stove rusty, and could feel small amount of electrical current on pans when cooking. The handles were all loose and coming off the pans, the toilet paper roll holder was almost totally off the wall. Stains in carpet and had to clean the room myself before we unpacked, I think the people before us had a wild child because there was pudding and crayon EVERYWHERE!! They need to just do a huge DEEP cleaning of whole building. I got tired of calling the front desk to fix things so I just let it go. I did get one of the best deals on the beach though. Last year we were 4 blocks down and paid double. I did also hear they were updating the building next door to us, so hopefully this one will be updated too. Great deal, if you're not picky. They have very very nice people working there, and that makes a huge difference, that is the only reason I MIGHT come back.

Room Tip: Ask for extra pillows, they're not good, or bring your own. Don't go bottom floor unless yo...

In good location to be able to walk to the boardwalk. Very nice staff and even the security guards were friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. The staff always asked if we needed anything when they would see out of the room going to or from the beach. Overall just a great place to stay!

The staff was very polite, anytime we needed extra towels or anything we got them immediately, very kid friendly, 9th floor balcony views were amazing! Right off the boardwalk and close to wave park, family kingdom......washer/dryer, great pools and kiddie area, kitchen area was nice, had the basics, jacuzzis in the bathrooms!! Over all the price was amazing and my family had a wonderful vacation!

Stayed here july 10-13, 2014. The pictures on the internet must have been when the hotel was built because it looks old in real life. Room was clean, but could use some updating. Bathroom was extremely small for 3 kids 2 adults. We kept running out of towels. One day they would make our beds the next day they didnt. Our bathroom was never cleaned but towels were replaced. The ac unit on balcony was in pieces. Staff seemed nice and glad they could speak english. Great location!!! Overall you get what you pay for. Will be staying elsewhere

This place is in a great location, polite staff and the prices reasonable. That is pretty much where the good things stop. There are definitely no extras here, not even shampoo. Our bed was absolutely as hard as a rock and we had to clean the toilet seat with disinfectant wipes when we got there, because it was apparent that they were not clean. There was a lot of random maintenance stuff that really needed to be done as well. I am generally not a picky person but it was just too much. If you don't mind these kind of issues then it is definitely the place for you, the price and location are right. However, I don't believe my family will be returning.

We stayed 4 nights in room 112. The room was clean and the staff were very nice. The only disappointment was the old mattress. For the price I would highly recommend this place. Great location on the boardwalk.

Great looking hotel from the outside and the inside. Literally 4 blocks from Family Kingdom to the left,and 5 blocks from "The Strip" to the right without paying the high dollar price. Oceanfront balcony with 2 chairs and small table was right at the boardwalk. Wi-Fi was free but sucked. Maid service was friendly and willing to work around our day schedule,or supply us with whatever we needed. Not many pots/pans/dishes so was washing often (which dish cloths are provided but detergent is 80 cents in office). Bathroom moderate sized and very clean. Outdoor and indoor pool stayed packed with kids,but can't plan on going too late because they close at 11. Hotel bracelets provided for pools,so others not staying at hotel will be asked to leave (GREAT idea). 3 outdoor balconies at roadside are awesome. Lazy river is over rated. FOUR parking lots available so always found a spot! I LOVED that the management here did NOT take any crap. Your stay will not be interrupted by loud noise,etc. Overall, I would stay here again...

Room Tip: I always say,the higher,the better. They have 9 floors with elevators to all.
