This place was absolutely foul, even by ratty motel standards. I should have known upon waking in the room that we shouldn’t have stayed. We booked three nights and only stayed one and requested a refund for the other two nights. The room reeked of cigarette smoke (couldn’t even smell any kind of cleaner or febreeze as a possible attempt at covering it up). The door didn’t shut correctly..looks like it might have been kicked in a time or two. There was a big gap at the top to let in all the bugs. The fridge didn’t work, the couch was basically just a frame as the cushions were flat and the stove/sink thing..didn’t even want to attempt it in fear it would burn the place down. The floors were not stable and bubbled as you walked across them. While the above sounds bad, the absolute worst dealbreaker for us were the beds and the shower. The beds looked sketchy at first glance but picking up the comforter was the worst mistake I’ve ever made. Both box springs were stained with who knows what to hell and back..urine, blood, feces, who knows? The one box spring was so crushed it wouldn’t stay on the bed frame that had also been crushed. The sheets on one bed had what looked like mold stains so we didn’t even bother looking at the other bed or the mattress underneath. Needless to say, I’m grateful we traveled with our own blankets and pillows because we slept on our blanket over the bed - my mom, myself and my child on one bed. The shower looked like a gaggle of diseases waiting to happen..I was probably cleaner for not showering. Mold, dirt, who knows what. Also- should you be traveling with any disabled person that requires assistance please note that this location does not have any handicapped parking spots or any handicap accommodations (no ramps, elevators, etc). Rooms are not ocean view as advertised, they just face the ocean which is blocked by the boardwalk.

I knew this place would be a bit...rough. Didn't realize it would be rough, dirty, and noisy, not to mention uncomfortable. The only plus was that it was next to a good breakfast place, and literally 1/2 block from the Boardwalk. We left early.

Holes in the walls filthy smelly craphole doors don’t lock insects in the rooms. On top of it they office double charged our credit cards and they did not even know we were together so it seems like a scam they like to do.. watch your credit card statement if you stayed here

Horrible place. Extremely dirty,housekeeper doesn’t change sheets ,people smoke all over the hotel . Dirty pool, the bathroom is old, the sink was leaking. Dirty hallways& cigarettes all over thefloor. The only “ good thing” is the cable other then that. Nothing. I wanted to leave as soon as I saw my room but all the other hotels were full. I didn’t even want to seat on the bed because it was full of crumbs, it looks like nobody takes care of the motel. I saw the housekeeper and the only thing they do is mopping the floor. They don’t swipe or vacuum the floor. The Ac was greasy and dirty . Worse experience ever. I won’t come back anymore. Ps: I asked a non smoking room and they gave me one where my neighbors smoke. I asked the lady to change me and she gave me one where fortunately, I didn’t have nobody around me.

Popcorn in the bed sheets, smelt horrible, everything was run down and broken, couch had numerous disgusting stains, front desk was totally rude and unwelcoming, hair in the bathroom sink, sink wouldn’t turn on more than a drip, noisy, nastiest place I have ever been too. A total shock to open the door to the room and that we couldn’t get open! Dead bugs everywhere! Just NASTY
