The pictures were a lie! The pool was green and our rooms were completely outdated, HOT and sleazy. The entire set up of the rooms looked as if we were in a crack house. The walls had chipped paint which made me think we were all going to get lead poisoning. The carpets were not vacuumed or cleaned. The bathroom... More

Needed a room in a fast jam. Room was clean but beds were full of sand. It was a basic of basic place. Person at the desk was pleasant. Just came and gone like the wind due to car issue. But it was a bed and room all that mattered. Paid $120 for a Room..

I didn't expect a 5 star hotel but OMFG! This place was run down, outdated and sleazy. Nothing was walking distance (within a block). The place was blocks away from the boardwalk, beach, arcade, food and drinks. I was lucky enough to get parking for my huge truck in the limited amount of parking spaces. I decided to leave and...

I recommend that nobody stays at this motel! Disgusting and just smells like mold. As soon as we checked in, we checked right back out. Definitely violates some health codes. I don't know how this place is still up and running. Even the office is dirty and that's the first thing you see when you walk in.

Clean & Comfortable place to stay in Center of all the City attractions. Walking distance to Water park, beach, boardwalk & clubs. Rooms are newly renovated with all the basic amenities . Pool is little small but its clean.

Me and my boyfriend decided to come down for a weekend. This was one of the most affordable places. Man at the counter was extremely nice and helpful. We are here after the season is over though, so it's not as if there were a ton of people to care for... The room is spacious, has a mini fridge, kitchen... More

This place was terrible! I will never stay here again. The room was large but dusty and dirty. I couldn't put my feet in the tub. No extra toilet paper no cups, paper towels, ice machine, no washclothes. Suffice it to say it was a dump. The pool forget it. Dirty & old. Stayed on top floor didn't even have... More
