I rented 2 rooms for some friends and I. We were going to a wedding. I didn't like it at all. When I got out of the shower my hairdryer started a fire when I turned it on. Then when we went to bed my heater did not work. So needless to say I didn't enjoy my stay. Tried to... More

We loved the location and speed of check-in. Some of the rooms have balconies but they do cost extra. We smoked on the balcony only, with the door completely shut each time, yet we were harrassed upon check out being accused of smoking inside the room. The guy literally ran his finger across the ragedy dresser (btw), checking for ashes... More

This is not the Hilton so don't expect the Hilton. This is a very low budget motel held together with blood and sweat. The check in process was quick. They honored the price line price. Walking distance to several great restaurants and c-stores. Pool on property, small breakfast in the AM. Microwave and Mini Fridge in room. AC works well... More

We just stayed one night because this hotel is too dark and cramp for us, carpet look old in the room, reception area small as well as the breakfast area. For the same price, we got a better hotel near the boardwalk, so just do your homework before booking budget places. Outdoor pool is small and supposed to be heated... More

Check-in was strange; they wanted a large damage deposit on the charge card, which I refused to provide. Rather than let me walk, they waived it. The room was adequate at the price, but the TV didn't work - we were not going to use it much, so did not bother to complain about it. No soap, but we had... More

I made a reservation for a decent hotel and paid for everything several hours in advance. But when I got there to check in, the place was kind of seedy looking, and my room had been sold off. The manager had me wait for 10 minutes while he used bathroom, they refused to help me find another place to stay,... More

They stranded us with nowhere to spend the night, refused to refund us, horrible customer service, fraudulent business activities, and peoples property going missing.  We went to go check in at the hotel around 7 p.m. I gave him my name at the lobby and he said there is no reservation under that name. I gave him my confirmation number,... More
