We stayed in a condo which had 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 beds and a foldout sofa. Having 4 kids with us it was very spacious and worked out well for our needs. However there were a few things that I went to the owner about at the end of our trip and made some suggestions. A few are easy... More

If you are looking for a nice, clean, comfortable room then this not the place. If you want something cheap you have found it. The bed was like sleeping on a board which resulted in no sleep. However, it is in a good location and when I requested my money back for the rest of my stay they obliged. If... More

This is by far worst place I have ever stayed. It is a fishermen's motel not a place for anyone with standards to stay. The refrigerator doesn't work, the window was about to blow out from wall and leaking from rain and soaked floor and everything around it. The staff here did not think nothing was wrong nor wanted to... More

The staff was exceptionally accommodating! No hassle with any request & always wore a smile. Very close to marina, boardwalk rides & restaurants. The pool was properly cleaned every morning and locked at a reasonable hour every night. The beach access is close & with a 3 & 6 year old, they were able to lift a hand to carry... More

The room was spacious and the view of the ocean was breathtaking from the balcony. It has easy beach access (very important with small children.) the motel was close to the boardwalk, shopping, and restaurants. We will definitely stay again!
