We stayed for three days here and loved it. So close to boardwalk and pet friendly. The staff was nice and friendly. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. We look forward to returning again to the RusMar.

Only complaint would be that the wifi signal was weak / non-existant inside the rooms. Signal was fine outside your front door. Would...

Hey thanks for all the nice comments. Especially the endorsement of how our rooms are so clean you can't even tell dogs have been in them. We wash the comforters after each stay and our tile floors allow our mops to make every room brand new again! Hope to see you back real soon!

This was my second year staying at this dog friendly facility. I refuse to travel unless I can bring my dogs. I love them like they are my children.
