We were here for a wedding, so this may have been a "busy" weekend, but the cost of almost $300 per night was WAY too much for this room. We rented the "family" room since there were four adults and it was their last available room, but basically it was one cramped small room barely big enough for the two beds, and a "main" room with a futon, which was small and oddly laid out as well - there was really not much common space, and no table, just a desk. In other words, there's not a lot of space to BE when you aren't in your bed! One of the two main lights did not work, so it was dark as well, as the windows were small and high. Every time we asked for something - ice, extra towels - they asked us WHY we wanted it, as if they're used to abusive guests!
On the other hand, it was very clean, and they have done what they can to make it nice with flowers, deck chairs (chained down, beware they don't move!), and little touches such as starfish drawer pulls that were cute. Parking was not an issue. Also, it really is VERY close to the boardwalk, and the trolley stop to downtown. And the breakfast was nice. But for the cost, it was not worth it.
