of course I consulted tripadvisor AFTER our rooms were book and I duly freaked out when reading the horrible reviews. We went anyway and were pleasantly surprised.
Yes, the rooms could be updated with new carpeting and the balcony could use a coat of paint and be larger (only 2 chairs can fit). Also, the bathroom was small and had no shelving (only a small 2 shelved vanity above the toilet and this held the towels) upon which to set my numerous toiletry bags (I have lots of creams and lotions to combat wrinkles and frizzy hair). However, other characteristics made up for these small issue.
The location was fantastic - right on the boardwalk and a short walk to restaurants, shopping, and arcades on Baltimore and First Street and Rehoboth Ave. No need to ever get in your car unless you want to hit the outlets which are about a 5 minute drive away.
The hotel provided beach umbrellas and chairs and towels, but you need to get there early to get them. They have an awesome restaurant with a big breakfast buffet and a friendly staff and an outdoor cafe on the boardwalk for hot dogs, pizza, salads and hamburgers. There is also a coffee shop.
The pool was a large size and very clean with lounge chairs.
I give this hotel 3 circles only because the rooms could be updated and the bathroom was so small, but there were newer, renovated rooms to be had.
