“awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The Hotel was clean and very friendly housekeepers, ( Marti) John ) they keep me up with clean towels daily and trash removed daily, it was a good price for my room, and i could walk to the beach in 3 mins. and a buss stops out front every 5 to 10 mins. to take you anywhere you want to go, I am not into a fancy life so this was a down to earth place to stay , And I will tell others >>> The Restarunts are very Expensive >>my room had a refrig. and microwave so i was able to save by getting a few groceries

Room Tip: get a room in the middle, you can see the ocean better

Rooms are clean. Maid service fine - vacuumed as needed, extra towels when requested. Easy access to beach (across the street.) bus stops in front of hotel, once you park car you can leave it for the week. No problem getting anywhere on boardwalk. Be aware that there is no door separating "bedroom" from kitchenette and sofa/ double bed. Pool is miniscule (12 people max.)

Room Tip: Room 127 was fine first 3 nights, but a "boot-stomping" group moved in to the room above o...

Pleasantly surprised at our stay. Ideally located just across the street from beach- we had an ocean view on the top floor. Recently Upgraded rooms with new TVs, and furniture. Our room always stayed cold, and the staff was extremely Helpful. Even called to let us know we had a flat tire so we could take care of it in a timely manner. Couldn't be More appreciative! Free parking also a huge plus! Would definitely recommend this as a no frills, clean affordable spot.

Rooms were nice and clean and they were very courtesy.Rooms are roomy and quiet and very comfortable. They have a nice clean elevator for you to ride up to higher floors. Pool was nice and clean. If you need any extra clean towels they will make sure you have them. They have coffee and juice down in the front office if you need any. Yo're close to the ocean front and easy excess to beach and getting breakfast your only one block from nice eating place. A quiet area to stay in along Beach area.

Room Tip: Rooms on top level are quieter.

Employees are very nice, but not a good place to settle for a vacation. The mobility in the hotel is horrible. When we booked online, we thought that we were getting a room on the front side, they didn't tell us there was a back. When we checked we unknowingly booked the backside. Unfortunately there is only one elevated for the front side, not the back. You are forced to climb stairs. When we got in our room, we noticed a loud sound in the vents. We couldn't stop it, it was louder than our home bathroom ventilator. My family couldn't sleep all night because of it. Hotel is not family friendly. There are always guys on main level smoking away while other families with kids are walking by. They have a pool but its much smaller than the other ones. Not a big lobby so no free continental breakfast. Fortunately room was well furnished and clean but the pillows were hard as soft clay. The employees were kind. Overall, its better to go back home than to sleep here. Please don't make the mistake my family did.

Room Tip: Make sure not to get efficiency rooms(back rooms)

Basic but met our needs for one night. However our room never was cool, and the water did not drain out fast enough to not have me standing in water. But in fairness to management, I did not report until i checked out as it was late night. If you forget something a variety store is just down street. Pool is tiny, but u are just short walk to busy beach. Location is n the busy section.

We are a family of 3,and we spend 5days in this hotel,the location is perfect because is almost in front to the beach, the parking is big, the service is great, they have access to use laundry, get a free ice, wather, coffee,or juice inside to the reception office, every days the maid service came to clean our room, and all rooms have a microwave and refrigerator that was very important for us because we use a lot, and the price is really convenient. We definitely plan to return the next summer.
