Was in the area for a friends wedding. We enjoyed the boardwalk and other beaches. However the room smelled. Through the night we were asked a lot move our truck a lot. We even asked where to park when we arrived. Saturday after we got out and about we came back to the motel. There was a sign saying Parking... More

Good value for money as this area is quite expensive. We only stayed here for a night. Bathroom was dirty. Floors were sticky. I had to put towel down on the floor to feel comfortable walking in there. Bed was comfortable and staff was accommating. It was fine for the one night’s stay.

It was late and we had no room. There was an Ironman Triathlon going on in town and no rooms. Due to that I think the prices were higher. Found this place online and reserved. The owner was very nice and helpful. The room was nothing special, old but clean. The bathroom has been updated and was nice.

I have stayed in a lot of motels, this was by far the worst. Yes it's cheap, but it is cheap for a reason. Old outdated televisions, dirty rooms, and thin walls. We could hear every car and every person that went by. At around 3 am a group of noisy, clearly drunk people decided to hang out for about... More

This was undoubtedly the worst motel I've stayed in! The carpet was filthy, the beds were so uncomfortable, the blankets were dirty and had holes in them. The pillows were lumpy. Screens on both windows were torn and there was only one lock on the door (no dead bolts). The parking situation was deplorable. Spaces so close together, I barely... More

I've been taking my kids for years. 5 minutes from the boardwalk which is what we go for. Rooms are clean. Staff is super friendly and considerate in my opinion. Coffee is just downstairs. Microwave and refrigerator makes for additional convenience. Price fits my budget. I have nothing negative to say about my stays here.

Had friends in town who made unfortunate mistake of staying ~here~ ill advisedly! MOST unpleasant - the room was far too small and undesirable to be able visit the poor souls who thought they'd stop near the Boardwalk. Would have been far better off to spend the extra dollars for a decent room on a special elsewhere - There is... More

Stayed here with 3 more friends for one night. The desk staff was rude the rooms were horrible, the bedding seemed dirty and the blankets were full of cigarrete holes. Dirty, smelly and overpriced. Wouldn't recommend it at all.
