This is one of THE most horrible hotels I've never visited. The pics are false, they have roaches (I only saw and killed one, but you know roaches), paint peeling from walls and ceiling, linen funky as hell, old furniture, busted pool, no iron in rooms etc. This place and the owner need to be condemned.

Ok let me say the positive things first. The employees were very nice to me. The bathrooms were updated. The wifi worked pretty well! Very close to boardwalk n beach! Now for the negative. The worst was the beds! We pay for a motel to have somewhere to sleep n my family didn't get much sleep. They keep plastic on... More

Terrible experience I'm more disappointed with Booking.com to advertise such a terrible place the pictures they show must be from a different place. The room smelled like something had died in it full of flies . The bathroom was moldy and rusty, the mattresses had plastic covers, the quilts had stains in them the window drapes broken. I reserved a... More

My husband and I rented this hotel for 4 days because it was closed to the boardwalk and beach. When we talked to the person in charge he said he was going to give us a nice room. The next day when we went to check in a different person sent us to the third floor with no elevator. The... More

Bathroom was renovated, rest of the room was old and run down. Air conditioner button was broke so temp could not be regulated. Ask for blankets as room was very cold and was told they did not have any. One of the worst motels I have ever stayed in. Pool area was dirty and no handrails/ladders for entering pool at... More

This place is awful, period. Families, do yourselves a favor and check out North Wildwood or Wildwood Crest instead, or head down to Cape May. I learned this lesson the hard way, so I'm hoping to spare you the pain. I paid as much to stay here for 2 nights as I do to stay in a Westin or Marriott... More
