Funny, we discovered the Seaway Inn by accident. Lucky thing, because now it's our favorite spot to stay when we visit on July 4th.
Pluses include: We felt safe, the rates are lower than the competition surrounding, and reserving a room is easy on your wallet. The Inn won't charge your credit card until your check-out, and you have up until 48hours of the reserved day to cancel w/o a fee, Its located closes to the Pier side of the Boardwalk on Beach St./ W.Cliff Dr. so it's less than a five minute walk to the Pier or Boardwalk, driving further up the hill by five minutes are grocery stores, B of A, and fast food, they let you BBQ if you bring a grill, very clean rooms, lots of towels in the bathrooms, fully equipt kitchens, polite and friendly staff (Stephanie or Sherry), free parking with your stay (even after we checked out at 12:00 pm they let us keep our car on site), free breakfast 6-10am hot waffles, coffee with flavored cream options, hard boiled eggs, bagels, yogurt etc...,and finally WiFi in the room.
To work on: FYI... The WALK UP THE HILL from the boardwalk to the Inn IS STEEP; stay in one of the four private Annex Rooms which are on Front St. to avoid the hill, older Inn, the ONLY room with a good view, BIG shower, and carpet is the Deluxe Room (the most $)and the view is semi blocked by the Dream Inn which is across the street, the bathroom shower is a dark stall for one w/o a caddy for hygiene products, the beds are soft, tile floors, older TV, and finally the rooms are close to each other.
