By far, staying at the Boardwalk Resort was the worst experience of my life. I traveled with a group of friends for Fourth of July and was opened minded upon arrival. The room was not clean, smelled, and was very out dated but we figured on spending most of our time out of the room. We decided to go into town our first night there. We made sure before we left to hide valuables, close the curtains, and of course lock the door behind us. When we returned later that night we walked in to discover that we had been robbed. Apparently, the thief broke in through a window in the back of the room. There was blood on our carpet from where the thief/thieves entered the room. We let the manager know what had happened and the next day he came and a repaired the window. THAT WAS ALL HE DID FOR US!!!! He did not care that we had been robbed and did not even bother sending in a cleaning crew to take care of the blood. We were not the only cabin broken into that night also. The police were notified and were kind but were not hopeful about finding our belongings. It was a horrible stay. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

Our stay was problem free, except the parking lot was too tight. Would stay there again.

Rustic, but clean...work had recently been done in the bathroom and the shower was hot and had great water pressure. The view was great and everyone I dealt with was very accomodating.
If you want fancy, look elseware. If you want a great location and a good time I would recommend it.

First 15 minutes there the toilet backed up twice and flooded the bathroom. Please stay somewhere else. I didn't believe the reviews... I DO NOW...Our friends had a different room. They felt the same way. My back hurt from the bed for the entire time I was there.

BELIEVE ME......THE OTHER MOTELS ARE A WHOLE DIFFERENT CLASS.

The website is a pack of lies. Thankfully we brought our own coffeemaker. There was none in the room as advertised. We spent as much time as possible out of the room. It was totally filthy. The bed was so close to the very small TV that it was a hazzard. The lamps were both broken and were dangerous.
The toilet was so close to the vanity that we had to sit at an angle.The front door was about to fall apart. The lock was about to fall out and did not lock automatically. There was a plywood insert in the front door because the windows were not in working order. There was hair and webs all over the bathroom molding
along the walls. The shower leaked constantly, running all over the floor in the bath. When we went to wipe it up, the towel was
black from dirt. There was no phone in the room, no clock, no TV directory. Probably the worst place we have ever stayed for the money. $10.00 per night was too much. I would not let our dog sleep there and recommend this to noone. The front windows were also broken and open slightly in room 7.

I bring a large group to this resort each August. We have had the opportunity to see improvements made each year and have always enjoyed our stay. I will be bringing the largest group yet this year. All the additional people are coming because of word-of-mouth from those who have joined us in the previous years. We have found the rooms clean and comfortable, but don't spend all day in our rooms, so they're a good place to sleep at the end of a busy day.
