I work in the travel industry, and feel that I've "seen it all"! I read all the "negative" reviews online about this Property and was expecting the worst! I have to say... My experience was NOT so negative. My entire family stayed at this hotel, as we simply needed a 1 night stay in the area before a Cruise.
My brother suggested this property because of its Price and Location. He was Right! The price was Great as well as the Location! There is NO closer Hotel to the Boardwalk, than the Passport Inn. It is literally at the Boardwalk! So close you can walk to the many Restaurants, Bars and Activities that the Boardwalk has to offer! We had 5 rooms and none of them smelled or were dirty. The people at the front desk were fine. Not rude or short in any way. So this stay, met all of our immediate needs.
However, if you are looking for a 5 Star Resort...this hotel is not for you. The pool/deck mentioned, IS a little laughable. You will know what I mean if you see it. It is simply a small above ground pool with a couple of Lounge Chairs. The Breakfast mentioned was just Ok. There was Coffee and Juice, some Bananas and Apples, Cereal. A toaster w/some breads. And a few "Walmart" type snack cakes/muffins. So, its not a 5 star Buffet Breakfast, by no means...but we did not have to shuttle to the cruise hungry. It met our needs.
This property does have 3 floors. Ground Floor being the Parking Lot. I did not see an elevator. So, you must be able to climb some stairs. The 1st floor with rooms, is 1 flight up. So if your disabled and cannot climb stairs, this property may not be for you.
So, you cant believe everything you read. If you need a place to hang your hat without a bunch of "Frills". I would highly recommend this property. Trust me....Ive seen worse!
Request a lower floor. Less stairs to climb!
