Arrived on July 31st for a 4 night stay. We arrived before check in time, so the room was not ready, but they did allow us to park in the lot so we could go to the beach while waiting for our room. The walk to the beach is 2 very long blocks, so if you have a lot of gear, it will be difficult. We returned and the room was neat and smelled clean. The furniture is old and there is not a lot of "closet" space to hang clothes, but it was ok. I went to take a shower and there was no water flow in the shower (oh and there is no faucet to fill the tub, if you have little ones). My husband went to the front desk to advise them that the shower was not working and it was very difficult to get clean (especially after spending hours at the beach) . He was told that the owner wasn't there but would be advised of the situation, and a plumber would be called. The next day we returned to our room, and the shower was not fixed. He again went to the front desk where Denise told him she would look at it when we went to dinner. No change when we returned, and no plumber. Monday (day 3) I went into the shower after being decimated by a wave and loaded with sand in my hair and bathing suit (they have no outdoor shower, even by the pool to rinse off with) and again no water flow, without exaggeration, it took me over 20 minutes to get the sand out of my hair which is shoulder length). I was more then annoyed, and went to the front desk. Denise told me the plumber called and said he wouldn't make it, but she would try swapping out the shower head when we left for dinner. She also said she would be discounting our room rate due the the inconvenience of the 3 days. She did offer a free night, but we were unable to stay another day. Returning from dinner, the shower head had been changed, and low and behold a normal shower was able to be taken on our last day there. I called Denise on our way home on Wednesday (the office doesn't open until 9 am), and left a message asking how the discount would be given to us, ie a credit on our credit card). She text my husband and said she was in a call. She never returned our call or advised of how the discount would be applied. I called her on Thursday and she said she never said that, that we had already received a discounted rate. (This reservation was originally for 2020 but had to be cancelled due to Covid, we were not able to be refunded our deposit, so it was held over for 2021) so apparently she now thinks because we paid a deposit in 2020 for slightly less then 2021 rates, that this is the discounted rate. Would NOT recommend this place to anyone.

I'm at this motel. It's 3:45am. Usually I save my reviews for after checkout, but this place is extra special, so here we are. The sheets and pillows are WET. When we checked in, we noticed they seemed damp, but we turned on the AC unit thinking it would dehumidify the room while we were at the beach, and we went out for 8hours or so. Then we returned, pulled back the covers and found that the sheets were also really damp. And the pillows were still damp. My 10 year old was super uncomfortable, so I called the front desk... "Hello, this is room 16...umm....our pillows seem really damp...is this something the other rooms are experiencing too?" Front desk clerk, "That's because the humidity has been so high and it hasn't been hot and it's because of the air conditioners making them cold. They are just cold. I felt them myself earlier." Me: "oh...Umm...ok, thank you." Nobody tell my husband we paid $195 for this room. I'm sure they have a dryer on the property. Or maybe a couple spare pillows that aren't wet? I used to work at a hotel, and I can't imagine allowing a guest to try to sleep with wet pillows and sheets. They are so wet that if you lay on them, it makes your skin wet. Both beds. It's not comfortable. Survival tip: Take the wet sheets off the bed and sleep on top of the comforter, and use your packed vacation clothes on top of the pillows to keep your hair and face dry. ORRR...take the comforters to the car and sleep there and bring them back in the morning. Right now my dress and leggings are keeping us from dying. I turned the heat up to 80 in a fruitless effort to evaporate the humidity. Then back to 72. Then back to 80. Then back to 70, because my daughter was hot. I'm sure whatever money they saved by not giving these blankets and sheets an extra 10 minutes in the dryer they have surely lost in electricity from my trying to fix this problem... We turned the AC unit off for a while, since it seemed to be doing more harm than good, but an exuberantly loud Italian guy was outside smoking and talking, while his female friend kept telling him he needs to be quieter because he was "seriously louder than loud dude" (her words, not mine). I personally enjoyed listening in on their conversation, but my family found it annoying as they were trying to sleep. Italian dude thinks that companies are hiding the cure to cancer because it would cost them money to cure it. I think that's a pretty big conspiracy theory, and he didn't have much evidence, but hey...the pillows are wet so, waddya Gonna do? AmIRight? Check in was ok. No masks on anyone, which would usually bother me but I'm vaccinated so...okie dokie. Front desk lady was terrible at recommending a restaurant. (By the way, if you want seafood, "The Shrimp Box" was expensive af but realllly good.) She didn't mention any place by name, but she was nice. Note: They no longer have half price beach tags at this motel, ever, according to her. The room was very clean. The shower is a one-piece surround, so no mold cracks. But the pillows were WET... There was no dust on any of the blinds in the 3 windows...But wet pillows ... The refrigerator and microwave are clean. But...w.e.t PILLows... There is no hair dryer. There is also no air vent anywhere, not even the bathroom. I chose this place because it looked like the closest to the beach...walking distance. But seeing so many available parking places right up by the boardwalk, I should have booked a nicer hotel with a little drive instead, and paid the $2.50 per hour to park. It may have even been cheaper. But right now, I would sell my soul for some dry sheets and a dry pillow.

Excellent experience! The manager Denise was very accommodating and helpful. We were even allowed to check in early. Less than half mile from the beach. The family suite is very comfortable. We will definitely go back.

If you set your expectations appropriately this motel is an adequate place to stay. I am sure the first floor is nice and renovated, but the renovations did not make it to the second floor. Simply pulling up the old damp rug would help and maybe some better (eco friendly) cleaning products in the bathroom. We had no option for a bath for our two young kids..it had a tub, but no bath faucet or drain to keep water (not that I would have let them sit in the tub anyway). The AC is great though and kept us cool. The location is nice and a city block away from boardwalk and I guess that’s what makes this a 3 star option. The pool is decent and nice to have, but someone should skim it throughout the day. This is def not worth $200 a night, but as a last second option it worked.
