I'm giving it 2 stars because the location was great. Just steps from beach and jolly Rogers and restaurants. And the pool was actually nice. But. The place was very outdated. Not very clean. I guess for the price it was ok but I would definitely pay more and stay somewhere nicer. Would not stay here again.

This place was $240 for one night. I think their amenities and clientele fit more into an hourly rate business model. For that exorbitant rate my wife and two children were treated to a small room, small outdated bathroom, tiny uncomfortable beds, and drunken patrons coming and going all night long. The small refrigerator wouldn't close, the toilet wouldn't flush... More

The hotel and room were nice; however, the level of comfort and the amenities provided did not justify the high price. Granted, we did only book the hotel the week before and that was probably an oversight on our part. The hotel is less than a block away from the beach; however, the boardwalk ends just before it reaches the... More

The bathroom was a little outdated but very clean! And we were so close to the beach and the entrance was very clean and not over crowded! And just blocks from the boardwalk! The staff were all super friendly and always asked if we needed anything! We would defiantly stay again! 😀☀️🐳

The hotel lobby was cute and welcoming. Check in was a breeze and staff was pleasant. Housekeeping checked with us each day to meet our needs. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Just a short walk to the beach and 3-4 blocks from the boardwalk. (they have buses for those who cant walk the distance) They have a... More

Lots of places close to the beach are a little run down. That's what you get with beach motels. If you want Hilton luxury, then stay at the Hilton. But this place wasn't even a whole block from the beach. It was closer. And it was 3-4 blocks from the boardwalk. And there's lots of food places nearby. They also... More

I have to say it was clean. But bare bones. No hair dryer, a few wire hangers. No tissues, etc. NOTHING extra or special in any way. Had to ask for clean wash cloths which they promptly brought up to the room. Very basic. If you are the type of traveler that just needs a room to sleep and shower... More

We arrived early around 10am on a Saturday morning and checked in with front desk. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to park in the parking lot until our room was ready. They took down our phone number and called us about an hour and a half before normal check-in time as that's when our room was ready.... More

The place was out dated. No phone. No ice machine. No elevator. No regulator on the hot water tank... Hot/cold/ hot/ cold. Still give you bulky keys. There was an obnoxious biker gang there that found it necessary to raise hell all day and the better part of the night which the management said nothing about when I addressed this.... More

So where do I start.....well, as we pulled up we immediately noticed the presence of a "biker gang". Now, I have a lot of friends who ride, but this was a little uncomfortable. The smell of "reefer" was prevalent as soon as we walked up to go to our room, as well as there music. I don't have a problem... More
