The Founders Inn was a beautiful hotel with a great a staff. Everyone was friendly especially the housekeepers and wait staff at the restaurant. We stayed here over staying at the beach resorts because for less money we were able to stay in a much nicer, cleaner place then what you would get for the same price at the boardwalk. The travel to the beach was never horrible. Traffic was moderate and took us about 20 minutes to get to the boardwalk. We took part in the BBQ on the terrace on Tuesdays. The buffet was delicious and offered many options for entrees and desserts. Food was high quality and fresh. The only negative was the bed was too soft. By my fifth night my back had enough. The beauty of the grounds is the real draw to this Inn. The flowers and landscaping is perfectly done. The back of the property gives you a nice spot to hang with family and friends. The pool is perfect and they offer a slide for kids or kids at heart. I would recommend this hotel even if you are making this a beach getaway.
