This hotel is a good option to stay at only if you're looking for a cheap room for a night to sleep or party in. Not very family friendly. Absolutely No security. Anyone from the street can walk up to the rooms via access from an outside side door that is kept unlocked at all times.
Hotel is only about two blocks from the boardwalk, and about a $7 cab ride to major casinos, but keep in mind you wont exactly be in the best part of AC. Parking is free on weekdays but is a $5 charge on weekends..I wouldn't mind paying for parking during the busy season, but during the slow season having to pay for parking was kind of a rip off. I was disappointed in the cleanliness and overall maintenance of the hotel and the room. Rooms are not poorly designed or furnished, they are just not well maintained and cleaned. Bathroom had hair in it, smears on sink faucet, carpet in lobby looked as though it wasn't vacuumed in days, found clumps of hair and trash inside the dresser drawers.
The "heat lamp" in the bathroom had a regular light bulb in it, and there was a big hole in the bathroom wall where the toilet paper holder once was, so toilet paper was just sitting on top of the toilet. I got two rooms and found this to be the case in both. I was kind of shocked that they would sell the room in this condition. I saw that they were renovating- we literally had to walk over and around pieces of furniture and dry wall in the hallways to get to the room. Felt as thought front desk should of mentioned this at check-in, like a "we apologize for our appearance during our renovations" or at least had a sign up. Renovations are great-but perhaps they should totally complete a renovation in a room first before selling an unfinished room?
Overall this hotel is OK. It has a lot of potential to be better. Like I said the room furnishings and decor are really not bad and the room is large and comfortable, they just really need to improve on their cleanliness and maintenance of the rooms.
