This was a last minute one night trip and the hotel was ok for the short stay. The outside is very well maintained. The pool looks almost brand new. Inside was a little different. It's time to update the 70's and 80's decor! The room was clean but had a musty smell. Furniture was very old and worn. Dresser looked... More

Great place. Clean, friendly and not far from the boards. Diner across the street with mini golf. Rates were good cant beat that. Grill on premises. Excellent center location you are close to almost everything.

I stayed there every late summer / early fall from 1985 to 2006 or so. The owners work hard to keep it clean. It is easy to walk to the boardwalk, the beach and many restaurants. Ample parking in the front and the back of the hotel.

Average motel room. Clean. Some of the guests were noisy and all over the place. There was some confusion on the part of the office and had to switch rooms after 2 days, but I do believe it was an honest mistake. Rates are better than most in the area.

We stayed from Saturday till Monday and it was great! The rooms were clean, but slightly out dated. The bathrooms were clean and nice to use. Carpeting could be updated but over all nice large rooms. The people were very nice and friendly (even other customers staying there). The walk to the beach was great, not too much traffic and... More

First we stayed here for the July beach blast with the team. The rooms were dirty, the beds were hard like sleeping on card board, there was no place to sit with the team, the pool was locked at 8 along with the only 1 table for the entire hotel. The owner complained about us hanging our towels on the... More

“If you are travelling with young children and want to have a separate room for them, ask to reserve a suite. The children's beds are located in an actual bedroom and there is a pull out couch for parents. Those rooms also include a stove for cooking as well as plates and utensils and a full-size refrigerator.”
