For the price we paid, the room was clean. The layout was weird of the hotel. We were placed in the back building (away from the pool). There was covered parking under our room. The room itself had the double beds as we reserved. We discovered a second bedroom near the bathroom! I think we were in room 224.
The room was clean, no bugs, decent TV and wifi. I still wore my flip flops as much of these kind of hotels have sticky carpet and I didn't chance it. The bathroom was a little dated but it looked clean and I showered without fear.
The free breakfast was decent: oatmeal, yogurt, cereal, toast, no protein (this is rare anyway unless it's a higher end place). We didn't see homeless people as others have stated.
I would not stay here again because we didn't like the city. There is nothing to do here, and the Boardwalk was closed while were there (which is supposed to be the main attraction). we would just stay somewhere else along the coast. You get what you pay for with this hotel
