By far, WORST experience at any hotel ever! When we went to the management with our issue, he was extremely disrespectful, talked down to us, and talked to us like we were stupid. Manager's name is Kenneth Fairbanks. By far the worst customer service we've ever experienced, not only in a hotel, but in any business. As a business owner...

We got a room with two bedrooms and a dining/living area. 5 of us stayed in this room. Very nice rooms with an excellent area for dining/visiting that included several cabinets, table, microwave oven and a refrigerator. They had a company that shuttled us back and forth from the hotel and Boardwalk for a minimal charge. Very clean and comfortable.

Stayed, and currently staying 45 days at this location. The front desk personnel Bianca and Kenneth have been so helpful during my stay, willing to react to my ever changing schedule. The personnel in the bar and grill (Sebastian, Coral, & Lauren) make for a feel at home hospitality and greeting me everyday by name as if we have known...

It's close enough and usually cheaper to stay here than Boardwalk Inn. It had very contemporary rooms, it looked newly renovated. The had a nice restaurant/bar that had good food and stayed open late. The pool is small but clean.
