Hotel was nice overall with good service. We checked in late on a Friday and checked out at 2pm on a Sunday. The hotel is within walking distance from the beach a 5 minute commute. They have an outdoor pool with umbrellas and lounge chairs. A nice stay overall.

Clean hotel (which is very important to me). A bit pricey but considering you at within10 minutes walking distance to Ben it's fair. They have a free breakfast with a huge selection of food items for kids and adults. Cereal,omelette,pastries,bacon,sausage,biscuits,gravy,toast,bagels,yogurt,fruit,juices, and coffee and teas 7a-10a. The staff was courteous and allowed us to leave our car in the parking lot... More

I guess in a basic way, this hotel is okay. The room was generally clean and quiet, and breakfast and parking is included. However, a lot of little things bothered us. The biggest two were that nothing in the room ever dried, and the wifi was terribly slow. when you are at the beach, you should be able to hang... More

This hotel is in a good, central location. The staff is as nice as can be! It was raining when I was there, so I didn't really get to enjoy the beach, but I was there on business anyway in the off-season. The hotel was more crowded than I expected. The breakfast was varied and very good! There didn't seem... More

The hotel does not live it up to its website. It is farther from the beach than implied on the website and a good 15-20 minute walk to the shopping area. No transportation provided by the hotel which would be nice considering the hotel rate and the distance in warm weather. No hotel access to the beach - find your... More

Location is awesome! 5 min walking to the beach, and a few min driving to the boardwalk. Food is average, bagels, muffins, some hot foods. Room was clean, service overall was good. Free parking is nice. Get a room facing sea colony, better view that way.

The room was very clean for beach hotel. Morning free breakfast was well stocked and maintained. It is a short walk to the beach because you have to go around Sea Colony but definitely walkable and just a little farther is the boardwalk. Very happy with stay.

Stayed for a couple of nights with family. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The wet bar, microwave and fridge are great to have. Convenient location right off the main drag and easy to find. Next time, I would request a room that doesn't have a door that can be adjoining another room. There was a family in the room... More
