Great location. Excellent accommodations and attentive staff. Unfortunately, the restaurant detracts from a completely, positive experience as the food and service are both subpar. Fortunately, there are satisfactory alternatives closeby. With that in mind, we will return

We love staying at this hotel. It is right on the beach/Boardwalk and has an indoor pool and jacuzzi/hot tub. The staff are friendly and helpful, wanting your stay to be pleasant.

Mary Sue Jones continues to impress after all these years. She is always around and available. She insures that the employees she hires, like Janice, Ashley, and others are polite, friendly, and professional. If she has not won any awards yet, she should! Mary Sue Jones is the reason why we continue to return after many years of traveling.

I was pleasantly surprised how nice the hotel was. I have stayed at different hotels and this was one of the nicest ones! I made the mistake of booking with booking.com so we were unable to get the special discount rate. Probably will stay here again.

My only complaint would be the 2 double beds. It was clearly just me and my boyfriend staying... other than that the view and amenities were fantastic! The location is perfect. Staff was helpful and let us check in early and the pool/spa is nice and clean.

Nice sized room. Walk in shower w curtain. Bathroom could use a vanity instead of the cheap standing shelf unit.
