Stayed overnight for the first time and it was very nice for the price. Great location and the office personnel (possibly the owners) couldn't have been more helpful. The room was comfortable and after checking out we went to the beach and we're able to use the outside shower, pool and changing room.

Been going to the Pavilion since Senior Week which was 40 (yikes) years ago. Nice, not super fancy but I have always found it clean and a good value. Super great location near the beach and boardwalk right in the most popular section of town (9th street). Beach tags were included for a deposit, parking was free (no exhorbitant parking... More

Stayed for a weekend in the beginning of this month. Initially placed in a horrendous room without windows, and very foul, musty smell, and a TV from the 80's that barely worked, however, when asked for another room, easily switched to a much more reasonable room. Generally clean and very close to beach, and the room was acceptable. Nothing spectacular,... More

Great Place to stay for a short beach getaway. Minutes walk to the boardwalk and beach which is great when carrying beach chairs and coolers, rooms are clean but basic. On site restaurant for a good breakfast before your beach day, nice pool to rinse off in after a day at the beach. We stayed for the first time last... More

I have read other reviews about the key situation here and I am so glad I did. They take a deposit for a key when you check in which did not bother me. The mistake I made is that I did not get a signature on a form that I took one key. I stayed in the hotel one night... More

The older lady at check-in was extremely nice and helpful, however the younger lady there (I think her name was Sharon) was very obnoxious and rude. From there it just got worse. The pool was dirty and t=I overheard someone say they had failed the inspection, the rugs in the room were so dirty we had to keep our shoes... More

I booked two rooms for three days. The hotel is dated, but clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Restaurant; Sea Horse Grill ( not listed on TripAdvisor) is vrery good and reasonable. Prices generally $2 less per entree than other places in the area. It is a block from the boardwalk. The pool is clean, with... More

Do you want to stay somewhere that no one enters your room with the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door? Don’t stay here! Do you want a working TV in your room? Go get it yourself! Save yourself the headache and do not even bother with this place! If you are desperate or unlucky enough to stay here, just... More

Loved the pool, included parking, great location, value. Will definitely be back. Only thing I didn't like was the restaurant was closed 2-5:00, when we usually eat dinner (I know, probably the exception). All the staff was professional and very friendly. I didn't have one negative experience.

Sharon at front desk was very accommodating for a last minute check in on a Friday night. We didn't like the room facing Moorlyn Terrace as it faced a house rented by college students and had no closet space. Sharon moved us to a larger room on the inner court & it was better. There isn't alot of space between... More
