Our annual stay at the Friendship is always a highlight of our summer. The rooms are clean, and it's a great bonus to have 2 separate rooms and a kitchenette, although the rooms are dated and rather small for a family. All rooms look over the pool and ocean... very well kept grounds. Nice pool area, grassy area for kids to run around, and perfect location on the beach. The motel is a mile from the busy pier and amusement park, the beach in front of the Friendship is never crowded, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the stairs as they can be noisy. Upstairs rooms have a better view with a balcony, but downstairs rooms have direct access to lawn and pool via a slider. If you have older kids that will be in and out a lot, or have a lot of gear to bring to your room, downstairs is more convenient.

Love it here. Right on the beautiful, clean ocean. Pool is a great plus for a morning swim before hitting the beach. Can't wait for August..it's a yearly family trip. Easy walk to the pier on the street or the beach. Staff are great and so are the rooms with the sleeping and living sections!

We used to stay at the Normandie BUT we found another Inn we love. It has 2 tvs. I beautiful bedroom and then a sitting room with the other tv. The Normandie was nice but only 1 tv. Now, I know we're all there for the beautiful ocean & great food but at night it's nice for 2 people to have their own shows. Very clean & friendly!

Stayed for a couple on nights in October, front desk staff pleasant and helpful, room had very comfy king size bed, living area with sofa bed , couple of armchairs, fridge, microwave, sink and small dining table. The bathroom was small but usable and clean with plenty good quality towels. There was also a large balcony with a couple of seats and a great view of the ocean. The rooms have both AC and heating, we used the heating in the evening and it soon warmed the room .

The hotel is in good condition with the grounds and pool also in good condition there is a laundry room available for guests to use, all the staff we encountered were pleasant and polite . Whilst not in the center of the town it is in a quiet location and only a few minutes drive to find somewhere to eat ,

I considered the Friendship suites good value for money, prices vary dependant on where abouts in the building your room is but it is well worth the few $ extra to get a sea view room, the rooms on the upper floor at the end of the building offer the best views

Would defiantly stay there again

Room Tip: upper floor have better views, rooms 27 & 29 have wrap around balcony and directly face the ocean

You are paying for the location. Everything inside the room is old. You have beachview and can access the beach from the hotel. I wouldn't stay here again. No complaints with the hotel but the whole place can use a facelift.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms come with an ocean view. Ask for room closest to the beach.
