This was our first trip to the Dream Inn - with my 11 and 12 year old. We LOVED the location (walk to pier, boardwalk, beach, anywhere) and the room was spacious enough to fit a rollaway in addition to two comfy double (or queen?) beds. We loved going to sleep and waking up to the surf (loved the 3rd floor!). I don't usually care about a beach view, but it really made a difference here because you felt like you were on the beach. We had dinner at Aquarius, which had great kid and adult food, my kids spent 3 hours in the pool because so many kids were in town for the weekend for sports, etc. The hot tub was always hot enough despite the traffic, and the heated pool made a difference. The front desk staff and cleaners were excellent and, yes, I too was irritated by the 'surprise' $24 valet charge - they implied when I checked in it was free - maybe they just mean that whether I parked it myself or not it was $24. Nonetheless, we will be back. Beach view $455 which seemed steep but was worth it.
